The Blackening Brought In 2023
One of my favorite recent movie releases is a movie called: "The Blackening." It is a comedy thriller about a group of friends who decided to rent out a cabin in the woods for a weekend. The friends went to college together, and it was their 10th anniversary after college. The movie was a perfect blend of comedy and suspense. The director and writer did a great job of projecting a clear point, which made the film relatable.
Getting Into The Film
The movie was about 5 African American friends that planned a getaway to celebrate their friendship, unaware of how dangerous the place they chose for vacation would be: to save themselves, they had to play a game. The game consisted of a series of questions surrounding their ethnicity, and if a question's answered incorrectly, it could cost their lives. The movie supplied hilarious, heartfelt, and fearful moments. It was a mixture of all genres.
I enjoyed this movie because it was relatable, and seeing people of color as leads in horror films isn't common. I also believe that this movie will be timeless or a classic that will be relevant years later. Each character had unique characteristics making this movie extremely entertaining.
In conclusion, This movie is a must-see. It's not gory, but you will jump from time to time. I think this is what the millennials needed. Lately, newer movies lack creativity (my opinion) and it's a phenomenal feeling that writers are starting to become creative again. If you are having a sleepover or just a movie night, This movie should be a part of your collection.
