Why Create Black Girl’s Guide to Horror?
Horror is for everyone, but it doesn’t always feel that way with the lack of representation in the genre. Final Girls? White. Heroes? White. Villains? White. Masters of Horror? Mostly all white. Even those who talk about horror are all for the most part white. The Black Girl’s Guide to Horror the answer to the too white, too male, too cis, too straight genre that so many of us love but don’t see much of ourselves in. This is the website where horror fans of all walks of life can hear a different take on slashers, werewolves, witches, vampires, and all the other things that go bump in the night.
What Black Girl’s Guide WIll Discuss
For the most part, I’ll be talking about whatever is new in horror movies, tv, books, and other mediums, but I’ll also shed light on certain intersections of race, gender, and other identities as they pertain to horror movies. That last part has often been a blind-spot in horror and horror commentary and it is my hope to rectify that.
I’ll also post about movies that I feel have been glossed over, swept under the rug, or just not marketed well and why you should check them out.
