Trailer for 2014 Horror/Thriller Repentance

Nicole Ari Parker & Forest Whitaker in Repentance (2014)
Repentance (2014), a new horror thriller starring Anthony Mackie, Forest Whitaker, Sanaa Lathan, and Mike Epps is described as a southern gothic story centered around a troubled man and the life coach of sorts who tries to help him battle his demons. Unfortunately for the characters this won't be a simple nor safe task and fortunate for us the viewers, this looks to be an enjoyable, nail biter packed with supernatural themes and well paced suspense. Repentance is set for limited release tomorrow, February 28, 2014.

I'm betting on this one. Whitaker has been an activist and humanitarian for many years. In what I'm sure is a very busy life, he takes the time to advocate for significant Black characters in genre film, literally in the face of the most overt, soft-blow-"well-meaning" type of systemic racial exclusion.

As we leave Black History Month in 2014, this film is hopefully is a step in the direction I initially alluded to where meaningful Black horror films see steady resurgence.
