“It’s Black History Month & Women In Horror Month: Our Future”

0

Graveyard Shift Sisters writes about the merging of Black History Month & Women In Horror Month: “The marriage of our stories and horror in 2014 is uncharted and drowning in possibilities. We can’t negate the magnitude of visual representation. Mirroring my first point, what we say and affirm about the multiplicitous life of Black women translates well in horror, I would argue better than most other film genres. Horror allows us to fully confront our deepest fears and anxieties. It’s cathartic and limitless. It’s more in your face and unsettling. This is the kind of energy I observe in women of color today who are active in transitioning our image into one that is whole and not regulated to caricatures.” (via Broad Universe)
