Fans of both the book and Shudder exclusive documentary Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror prepare to expand your minds even further because Ashlee Blackwell of Graveyard Shift Sisters along with the book’s author Dr. Robin R. Means Coleman and Tananarive Due have created The Horror Noire Syllabus.
Described as a “digital, living document,” the syllabus acts as an extension of the book and documentary that will be expanded over time. It is currently only eight pages long, but those pages are FILLED with incredible information and resources.
Want a list of film titles that were mentioned in the documentary? It’s in there, but that’s only the beginning!
After the feature film list is an interactive list of short films with links, where available, to streaming platforms where you can watch said films.
The Horror Noire Syllabus goes on to list both fiction and non-fiction books, podcasts, playlists, comics, websites, and articles all carefully curated and dedicated to the subject of race, inclusion, and visibility within the horror genre.
At its current length, there is enough reading and viewing material to keep you busy for days, and one can only imagine the incredible entries that will be added as it continues to grow and evolve.
