Black Horror Films: Slasher Flick, White Knuckle Tackles Gentrification
Coleman, a Boston-born transplant himself has seen a radical change in the neighborhood over the past few years. "I think specifically, it was more than just a racial demographic which is a visual marker, but more than anything a lack of communication and becoming a less communal area, receiving less hellos and saying less hellos," Coleman recently told Camille Bautista for This Is New York. "There are conversations about who the killer might be, black criminology, black pathology, what it might mean if the killer is a life-long local, and what it might mean if the killer is somebody who is a gentrifier themselves. It’s a conversation about who a neighborhood belongs to, not only in terms of actual physical space, but also culturally."
