HORROR NOIRE: A HISTORY OF BLACK HORROR Hits Blu-Ray/DVD February 2nd

RLJE Films, a business unit of AMC Networks, has picked up select rights to Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror from Shudder, AMC Networks’ streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural. Horror Noire will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on February 2nd, 2021. It’s perfect timing as February is Black History Month.

Synopsis:
Delving into a century of genre films that by turns utilized, caricatured, exploited, sidelined, and finally embraced them, Horror Noire traces the untold history of Black Americans in Hollywood through their connection to the horror genre. Adapting Robin Means Coleman’s seminal book, Horror Noire presents the living and the dead, using new and archival interviews from scholars and creators, from the voices who survived the genre’s past trends to those shaping its future.
