Watch R. Shanea Williams' Psychological Horror Film Paralysis Now


The best of #Blackwomeninhorror in 2016, R. Shanea Williams' psychological horror film, Paralysis is at the top of the stack. As a visionary, Williams' work is packed within these digital pages because of the way she's taken her Hitchcockian methods and molded them into something of her own. The beating heart of her work is horror, but the connective tissue threads drama, thriller, and suspense that's arguably unrivaled due to her relentless push for the centrality of Black women; their stories, and just how they confront the horrific.

Now Williams and her team have released the short for everyone to catch in its entirety on Vimeo!
