In James Baldwin’s 1976 critique of the landmark horror film The Exorcist, the legendary author argues that the horror genre is merely “cheap thrills” which contrasts with the real-life horror that the Black community had to endure for years. Thus, with the emergence of the genre of Black horror, a new path was crafted.
