For Part 1 of our long-awaited conversation on Black Horror we are joined by Kristina Leath-Malin. As an academic, filmmaker and feminist horror scholar, Kristina's MA on French Horror and the "New Wave Extremity" culminated with her thesis-turned-published book Objectification repackaged: The Women of 21st Century French Horror. Her current work at https://myfinalgirl.com/ and documentary project My Final Girl: Black Women in American Horror includes a web/podcast series, video work, and an internet database dedicated to exploring the positioning and representation of Black Women in American Horror Films. Together we discuss the documentary Horror Noire (on SHUDDER), and look at a cross section of seminal films in black horror.
