Watch Latest Trailer for Comedy Horror The Blackening

The internet is currently gushing about the gory horror of Evil Dead Rise, but Lionsgate is set to deliver something that describes itself a ‘comedy horror’ with The Blackening. The movie is set to come out in June, and we have a new trailer with more jokes and clips of reactions from test audiences.

Check this out:

Here’s the official description:

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****** game. Directed by Tim Story (Ride Along, Think Like A Man, Barbershop) and screenplay and screen story by Tracy Oliver (Girls Trip, Harlem) & Dewayne Perkins (The Amber Ruffin Show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine), The Blackening skewers genre tropes and poses the sardonic question: if the entire cast of a horror movie is Black, who dies first?

With modern horror movies almost always having a meta element to them, The Blackening seems to really lean in on the topes, and we can see the characters all very aware that they’re in a horror film.

Though some could think this could be an attempt to bring back the Scary Movie parody films, I think the film does have an interesting angle that should be fun for audiences of both comedy and horror.

The Blackening comes to theaters on June 16.
