In the latest episode of ‘The Monstrous Feminine’, the witches take a little break from the teachings of Barbara Creed to school us all on the history of Black representation in horror. ✊🏽 ✊🏾 ✊🏿 Black horror, or ‘Horror Noire’ as dubbed by Dr Robin R. Means Coleman, has evolved tremendously over the last century. But the journey has not been easy. From being portrayed as irredeemable monsters, to becoming the sacrificial sidekick or the sympathetic killer, it is only more recently that Black characters have been able to flip the switch entirely and play heroic protagonists (who actually survive). But we still have a lot of questions. What social factors led to the creation of Blaxploitation horror films like ‘Blacula’? 🧛🏾‍♂️ Was Black representation set back with ‘Candyman’? 🐝 And finally, do we need a sequel to ‘Get Out’ where Rose is actually held accountable for her actions? ☕️ So sit back and enjoy this hour and a half long special. Remember to watch 'Blacula' (1972 dir. William Crain), ‘Candyman’ (1992 dir. Bernard Rose) and ‘Get Out’ (2017 dir. Jordan Peele) beforehand so that these femme fatales don’t spoil it for you. 😈 Be sure to follow us on Instagram @themonstrousfemininepodcast & Twitter @themonfempod, and keep watching this space for more upcoming spooky fun! ✨ The Coven: Louisa, Mila, Tyia and Zeba Music by: Ruud Bemelmans *CONTENT WARNING: strong language and discussions of suicide as well as racial and sexual violence*
