31 days of black horror

Gory greetings horror peeps and happy October. I took the time to write a countdown worth watching. This list features more than just one person of color starring in the production because that’s what I consider black horror. I’ve watched all these movies and feel most are considered top horror in my book. I also listed films with as many females I could find. Hope you enjoy the countdown I put together. Hoping to see more productions of color to fill a countdown of 100 someday. Hollywood needs to step it up. Now get your horror fix on the proper way people! Enjoy 💀
