Since the sexual abuse allegations against American film producer Harvey Weinstein in Oct 2017, the #metoo movement has received wide attention on social media and in public life. What this movement has reminded us is sexual abuse is deeply implicated in social/hierarchical power structures (forcing survivors to suffer violence and then hide trauma). It has also offered the possibility of speaking against sexual abuse, harassment, and violence in public and “shaming” perpetrators (as “due process” has often been painful, slow, and unfair). The movement has led to public debates on questions of patriarchy, power, nepotism, culture, clothing, ethics, and ideology.

Since Carol J. Clover’s seminal work Men, Women, and Chainsaws (1992), feminist readings of horror movies have gained an enthusiastic theoretical momentum. In employing various frameworks and lenses and by complicating our spectatorial position, this rich corpus of literature has perhaps contributed to a resignification of the genre and its tropes. However, amid the emergence of luminous movies that defy and challenge horror’s misogynistic and racialized foundations, several questions arise: Is contemporary horror cinema really abjuring its heteronormative, original structure? Does mainstream horror still convey trite reactionary messages with renewed vigor?

The months of May and June, 2020, saw unprecedented global protests against anti-Black racism and calls for a more equitable and just society that recognizes the humanity and lives of people of African descent. While these protests initially originated across the United States, protesters around the world quickly galvanized in support of these issues organizing events in a growing number of countries, including Canada, Mexico, Haiti, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, South Africa, Australia and Japan. This has been an important moment for Black scholars, activists, and cultural producers everywhere—as well as their friends and allies—to reflect not only on the crisis that has marked Black lives, but also on our future possibilities.
