A SHUDDER ORIGINAL
Cast: Lesley-Ann Brandt, Luke James, Erica Ash, Tone Bell, Tony Todd, Peter Stormare, Lenora Crichlow, Rachel True, Brandon Michael Smyth, Sean Patrick Thomas
Here is how The IMDb describes this movie:
Presents together six horror stories from Black directors and screenwriters in a single film: “Daddy,” “Bride Before You,” “Brand of Evil,” “The Lake,” “Sundown” and “Fugue State”.
By accident, I saw a trailer for this anthology movie on YouTube, it did not look good, but I recognized some of the cast & I like anthologies & I was interested in its potential & how it is giving Black content creators / actors / actresses a chance, and so I decided to watch it & so did my brother GC during the Thanksgiving holiday.
Fortunately, this movie was better than the trailer, unfortunately it was not as good as it should have been; and the last part was my least favorite story in the movie along with the part before it.
Each part did not do so great with their endings, fortunately they slowly got better, except for the last story.
There was a message to some of these stories, unfortunately they usually did not do a good job presenting those messages.
This is not a movie that I can recommend to many people except for those who like anthologies, those who want to watch something different, and those who want to try a movie mostly made by Black content creators & actors & actresses.
It reminded me of Into The Dark (Season 2), which was my least favorite season of Into The Dark so far.
