Black as Night Movie 2021

Black as Night is an action-horror hybrid with a strong social conscience and a biting sense of humor. 15 years after Hurricane Katrina wreaked havoc on New Orleans, a new menace emerges in the shape of puncture wounds on the throats of the city’s most vulnerable displaced residents. Shawna (Asjha Cooper), 15, wants to even the score when her drug-addicted mother becomes the latest zombie victim.

Shawna devises a daring plot with three close friends to penetrate the vampires’ mansion in the historic French Quarter, kill their leader, and revert his fanged pupils to human form. But slaying monsters isn’t simple, and Shawna and her crew soon find themselves embroiled in a centuries-old rivalry between rival vampire factions, each vying for control of New Orleans.

Plot Summary & Review

Shawna (Cooper) is a teen who is forced to grow up rapidly as she and her pals fight a group of vampires who are preying on New Orleans residents. The movie is set 15 years after Hurricane Katrina, and the vampires prey on the displaced residents.

When Hawna and her pals discover that murdering vampires is more difficult than they anticipated, they find themselves in over their heads. They set off for the vampire’s mansion in the French Quarter, where they plan to assassinate the vampire’s leader, reverting his minions to their old human selves. The teenagers become embroiled in a centuries-old conflict between opposing vampire factions.

While Sherman Payne’s script is heavy on voiceover for high schooler Shawna (Asjha Cooper), it does help ground the plot in her perspective, allowing Cooper’s riveting performance to reflect on the numerous components that come into play. Shauna was born shortly after Hurricane Katrina, and pieces of her life illustrate the aftermath 15 years later: her mother is addicted to drugs and lives in a dangerous environment in the Ombreux, a low-income housing neighborhood. The first time Shauna enters the place in the film, it has its own ghostly air, which the film brilliantly repeats throughout as the narrative fills its world.

As seen in a pre-credits sequence when one man is tackled to the ground by three others, their teeth ripping into his flesh as he screams, “Black as Night” is about a really vampiric entity who has been preying on the homeless in the neighborhood. When the vampire hunt gets personal for Shauna in a strong, startling turn of events that raises profound personal stakes, she decides to become a vampire hunter in order to stop the powerful figure who has been exploiting New Orleans’ homeless. Her buddy Pedro (Fabrizio Guido) and a crush named Chris help her overcome her reservations (Mason Beauchamp). Pedro and Chris have a hard time keeping up with her at times.

The script includes a long number of bloodsucker tropes, such as coffins, sharp teeth, garlic, wooden stakes, and so on. The scenes in which people discover these cliches can be tiresome, especially when compared to other films in which individuals tackle a genre head-on. It takes a little life out of the joy of seeing vampires when it’s about Shauna and her pals merely grasping the “rules,” and it sets up some conventional action scenes that provide baseline thrills and clearly gloomy backdrops. The jump scares aren’t really effective, and they blend into the clichéd horror aesthetic, which takes up a lot of screen time.

The legacy behind the vampires in “Black as Night” is more tied to racial history and the conditions of the impoverished in New Orleans, which comes to light more with the legacy behind the vampires as related to racial history and the conditions of the impoverished in New Orleans. Even this, though, has an unnecessarily didactic tone to it, with an animated monologue that appears more appropriate for a history class than a Halloween party. In a crowded subgenre, Go’s film takes a unique and hilarious approach with its own vampire hunters, which gives the plot a somewhat more distinct signature and a sense of humor.

Plus, near the end, there’s a fiery monologue from a character portrayed by the great Keith David, which wouldn’t have been as effective without the story’s twists and non-subtle method of addressing horrors far greater than vampirism.
