The Blackening

Movie • 2022  

Report
Based on 3Peat Comedy’s acclaimed sketch of the same name, director Tim Story’s savvy and vicious skewering of genre film tropes poses the sardonic question: if the entire cast of a horror movie is Black, who dies first?
This movie contains 39 potentially triggering events.

This is kind of ambiguous. The main villain is seeking revenge on people who he feels wronged him.

kind of, the movie kind of has a thing about the main characters friend finding out about her secret relationship and many arguments happen about that.

Kind of depends on what you consider torture. No scene or traditional torture (someone strapped to a chair being brutalized) but the game the victims are forced to play could be seen as psychological torture.

There’s gore but it really doesn’t feel excessive. And probably the most goriest moment is off screen.

All of the characters are held against their will at a cabin in the woods, but they came there of their own accord, although the circumstances that brought them there turn out to be dubious.

A character vomits while he's in a vent with two other characters. It happens around when he covers his mouth and a character tells him to quiet down. It's fairly quick and he vomits on the killer that is after them.

However, the vomit remains on the killer's shirt and there is a closeup of it that lasts for a few seconds. It looks like chewed up food and while I am an emetophobe, it wasn't too bad.

Not one that’s explicitly stated. The villain (big spoiler) has… something going on. He has a lisp and misses a LOT of social cues and behaviors. Him being neurodivergent is never outright stated, but him being the only character that acts/talks the way he does (especially given the actor does not actually possess those characteristics) rubbed me the wrong way.

When the characters first begin arguing/freaking out in the game room, one of the characters (Lisa) will shout about how they need to stop arguing. During her speech, the entire screen flashes with a static image for a brief second.

Yes, but it’s not because of an underlying prejudice in the movie industry. This whole movie literally seeks to go against that.
