Satirical comedy-slasher The Blackening presents us with a provocative question: why is it that characters of colour always die in horror movies first? In this wicked mixture of humour and horror, a group of African-American friends struggles to identify who will become the first victim of a rampaging serial killer in their midst. Can they survive the night?
The movie is released at Cineworld this August and previewed in advance for lucky Unlimited members. Here are just some of their reactions. Is it a winner? Scroll down to find out.
Really good! Some decent laughs, great characters, and ran through (with tongue firmly in cheek) pretty much every horror movie cliché! Scream meets Cabin In The Woods. Would definitely recommend 🍿— Alex B Cann (@alexbcann) August 15, 2023
Plenty of laughs, thoroughly enjoyed the movie. Certainly has a mix of plenty of other horror movie moments put in for good measure, nice little twist as well. Overall lots of fun and I'll be heading to see it again.— Blazing Minds (@BlazingMinds) August 15, 2023
Absolutely loved it. Found it extremely satirical and witty, best comedy of the year for sure. Each character gets their own unique moments and personalities. It feels like a love child to scream. The killer’s chase sequences were nail-hitting. A superb blend of horror and comedy— Matt The Critic (@matt_the_critic) August 16, 2023
Really enjoyed it. Some hilarious lines - great satire. Took a little bit to get going for me but it was a blast when it did! Will have fun watching it again.— Jen (@Jenn_fer_A) August 15, 2023
