'The Blackening's newest trailer guarantees a enjoyable and frightful journey

The Blackening seems to be completely hilarious.

A spoof of the horror style and its therapy of Black characters, The Blackening follows a gaggle of pals on a Juneteenth weekend getaway the place issues shortly go south due to a shock visitor. The group discover themselves caught enjoying a twisted recreation hosted by a mysterious killer — à la Jigsaw from Noticed — and it is surprisingly humorous. Taking purpose at horror tropes, specifically, Black characters all the time dying first, The Blackening relishes in laughter and screams as its lead characters combat for his or her survival with weapons and iconic one-liners. Based mostly on the reactions of preview audiences proven within the trailer, The Blackening already looks like a must-see.

The Blackening releases in theaters on June 16.
