People go to horror films to scream and squirm and have a good time. "Horror Noire" shows that to many, horror films are more than just blood and guts. It's a matter of life and death.

Horror Noire (as both a documentary and book) needs to be added to every film studies syllabus.

Xavier Burgin's documentary insightfully surveys the history of black - and black female - representation in horror cinema.
