The Blackening, the Tim Story-directed comedy-horror from Tracy Oliver and Dewayne Perkins, opened in theaters this weekend and Twitter is loving it!
The Blackening centers around 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.
Forced to play by his rules, the friends soon realize this ain’t no motherf**king game.
The Blackening skewers genre tropes and poses the sardonic question: if the entire cast of a horror movie is Black, who dies first?
Watch the trailer below.
The Blackening is currently trending on Twitter as folks take to their timelines to share their reactions to the film.

The Blackening was surprisingly good!! I thought it was going to be cringe, but they did a great job with the writing. Jermaine Fowler stole the show.— Nelson Man-Della Reese (@KHomatose) June 17, 2023

The Blackening is a MUST see, @DewaynePerkins did his thing with the script and the movie blends comedy and horror in such a pitch perfect way.
