The Blackening promises to take you on a thrilling and humorous journey. On June 16, 2023, this hilarious horror-comedy is scheduled to open in theatres, just in time for a Juneteenth weekend to remember.
In Tim Story's film The Blackening, a skilled cast of Black friends travel for the weekend to commemorate Juneteenth. Little do they realise that when they find themselves alone in a rural cabin with a deranged killer, their quiet retreat will transform into a nightmare scenario. They immediately come to the realisation that this is not your typical horror film; rather, it is a game of survival as they are made to follow the killer's rules.
If a horror film's whole ensemble is Black, who perishes first? is a wry question that The Blackening asks while deftly parodying genre clichés. Prepare yourself for a novel approach to the horror genre that balances thrills and laughs equally.
The Blackening promises outstanding performances that will have you on the edge of your seat and stars a strong ensemble cast that includes Grace Byers, Jermaine Fowler, Melvin Gregg, and many more. The skilled production team of Jason Clark, Tim Story, and Tracy Oliver will guarantee an engrossing and enjoyable viewing experience with this movie.
As The Blackening takes you on a rollercoaster of humour and terror, get ready for surprising turns, humorous moments, and a scary atmosphere. Buckle up and prepare for a genuinely extraordinary and exhilarating cinematic adventure.
