Great Doc On A Specific Genre
28 February 2019 | by jeremyaylesworthSee all my reviews

This is a well produced documentary telling the story of African American actors in horror movies over the last 100 years. Great guests/pairings. Left out a few movies like 28 Days/Weeks Later, among a few others(especially the 80's). Great conversations and enlightening, especially for the horror fan.
