Horror Noire, a horror anthology film sequel of sorts to the excellent documentary Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror, just had a trailer released by Shudder. Six stories will make up the two-hour film, both adapted and original. The filmmakers are husband-and-wife writing duo Tananarive Due (My Soul to Keep, Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror) and Steven Barnes (Lion's Blood), Ezra Claytan Daniels (BTTM FDRS), Victor LaValle (The Ballad of Black Tom, The Changeling,) Shernold Edwards (All Rise, Anne with an E); and, Al Letson (Reveals).

I am a sucker for anthologies, so I cannot wait for this one. Shudder has done a fantastic job these last 18 months elevating horror voices that previously didn't have a platform. There is still much to be done, but they have made great strides on the service and the projects they choose to get behind. If you have not watched Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror, I encourage you to do so; it is one of the best horror docs in quite some time. Look for Horror Noire, the anthology film on Shudder October 28th.
