The Blackening involves a group of Black friends who reunite for a Juneteenth
weekend getaway only to find themselves trapped in a remote cabin with a twisted killer. Here they are forced to play by his rules. Soon after they come to the realization that this isn’t a game, but rather a fight for their very lives.
The Blackening skewers genre tropes and
poses the sardonic question: if the entire cast of a horror movie is Black, who dies first? See it first in theaters this June 16!
