Lots of exciting news coming out of Comic-Con this past weekend, one item we are particularly excited about — Shudder's upcoming Horror Noire anthology feature. The narrative anthology is based upon the 2019 documentary Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror, which was based upon the Robin R. Means Coleman, Ph.D. non-fiction book, Horror Noire: Blacks in American Horror Films from the 1890s to Present. The movie will feature six segments comprised of stories centering on Black horror, created by Black directors and writers.
The six segments featured in the upcoming feature will be Sundown by Al Letson, Bride Before You by Shernold Edwards, Brand of Evil by Ezra Claytan Daniels, Fugue State by Steven Barnes and Tananarive Due, The Lake by Tananarive Due and Steven Barnes Daddy by Victor LaValle. Horror Noire is coming exclusively to Shudder this October.
Watch the official teaser below:

If you're thirsty for more, we also have our Convo x Fango panel, Beyond Horror Noire: Black Horror Today (And Tomorrow) with Horror Noire's Tananarive Due, Anya Stanley, and Ashlee Blackwell with moderator Ivotres Littles!
