Horror Noire ("Black Horror" or "Blacks in Horror" films discussed in the 2011 book)

some films discussed in Robin R. Means Coleman's book Horror Noire (2011) don't appear in the recent doc (& vice versa). i just read the book & put together everything in the "Black Horror" or "Blacks in Horror" categories she defines & discusses. I omitted Frankenstein, King Kong, Creature from the Black Lagoon, other ape films, etc. because I wanted to stick to films that feature African-American characters, even though some of those films definitely feel coded.

She doesn't discuss the slasher trope of black characters getting killed first in the book as in the doc, so the slashers that do feature black characters (a la Kincaid) aren't on here. This is the whole kit-and-caboodle, so all the really gnarly insidious stuff…
