Following the success of its 2019 documentary Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror, Shudder is bringing us a new Horror Noire anthology series that showcases stories of Black horror from established and emerging Black screenwriters and directors. And at this year’s Comic-Con@Home, the streaming platform unveiled a short teaser for the series, which debuts on Shudder and AMC+ on October 14th.
“When we saw the first cut of our Horror Noire documentary, we realised there was a huge untapped reservoir of great Black horror stories that needed to be told, and an extremely talented group of writers and directors ready to tell them,” Shudder General Manager Craig Engler said in a statement. “While the documentary was a look back at the history of Black horror, this anthology is a showcase for the future and will introduce audiences to fantastic new stories and characters.”
Horror Noire will include stories from Tananarive Due (My Soul to Keep), Steven Barnes (Lion’s Blood), Ezra C. Daniels (BTTM FDRS), Victor LaValle (The Ballad of Black Tom), Shernold Edwards (Sleepy Hollow), and Al Letson (State of the RE:Union). The series is produced by Swirl Films and executive produced by Eric Tomosunas and Ron Robinson.
