First off, Black actors and actresses have always acted in all film genres, at the turn of the century Black filmmakers had revolutionized film making and continue to do so; so we don’t need White folks permission to do any film genre.
Prior to Integration we had our own studios, Dr. John Henrik Clarke touched on this in the docu; ‘A Great & Mighty Walk.“ Also check out this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lincoln_Motion_Picture_Company
So the Triller ain’t nuttin new for us; plus being Black in the US is a real life Suspense Thriller and Horror for Black folks.
One more think, look "Night of the Living Dead,” 1968; and try to tell me we never been in horror films. Come on Anon.
I think the film is a trap because “No Good Deed” was not written, produced, directed, filmed, distributed, promoted, or watched in a vacuum. All that happened within the Systems and Institutions of White Domination. Whites have an unbroken history of using film as a weapon against the minds and bodies of Black people. (Google: Birth of A Nation.)
We shoulda learned that having Black faces on the big screen does not automatically into collective progress or even a collective good; have we learned noting from the Black Blaxploitation era.
If you are a Black youth Anon, I hope you keep inquiring and keep learning. If you are a Black adult, you should already know better.
