Disclaimer: Due to the number of gifs in my post, anyone viewing this on a mobile device please be aware of the bandwidth usage and proceed with caution after the cut! Thanks.

-Angelica Jade Bastién of Vulture conducted a list of 15 Essential Horror Films starring People of Color.
-Here are some of the films on the list in the cut below.

Night of the Living Dead (1968)

"But a major part of the power of the film is Jones’s striking, empathetic performance, as he struggles to survive getting a grim ending that takes on a different tenor because of his blackness."

Ganja and Hess (1973)

"The film uses its genre premise to explore through a highly stylized, boldly indulgent lens black American identity, sexuality, and religion in a way that lingers long after you finish watching."

Blade (1998)

-Blade really help to put a map to the Marvel verse (MCU) as we know of now due to its watchability and distinct character. Remember that iconic opening scene in Blade (1998)?

Train to Busan (2016)

-The film is a breath of fresh air in the ubiquitous zombie genre with its visceral and emotional content.

Bonus: At the film's press interview lol

“Out of everyone’s outfit yours is the shortest."

A Tale of Two Sisters (2003)

-A Tale of Two Sisters beneath the horror surface is also about the dynamic between the two sisters.
