Subscribe to FlickDirect YouTube

In today's exclusive, FlickDirect Senior Correspondent Allison Rose sits down with the stars and the creative team behind the new film, "The Blackening". Join us as Dewayne Perkins, X Mayo, Jermaine Fowler, Tim Story, and Melvin Gregg discuss their roles in this unique blend of horror and comedy. They delve into the tagline of the film, "We can't all die first", and provide a hilarious discussion on this theme and how the movie draws parallels with the Scooby Doo cartoon from the 1970s.


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?
