28 Days Of Black Women In Horror: Eve

Eve (1978- )

Animal (2014)

"Horror is my favorite genre. It's the best. I'm the kind of person that loves being scared, so to be able to be in a movie that I'm screaming in is the best."

Being in a horror film was one of Eve's dreams coming true.

Eve Jihan Jeffers-Cooper is a rapper and actress from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She is also the inaugural winner of the Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration in 2002 for the song "Let Me Blow Ya Mind" with Gwen Stefani. As an actress, Eve is known for her roles as Terri Jones in the films Barbershop, Barbershop 2: Back in Business and Barbershop: The Next Cut, as well as Shelley Williams on the UPN television sitcom Eve. She has also achieved success in fashion, with her clothing line, Fetish. (Source)

About Animal (2014)

Animal is a simple creature feature that centers itself around a group of young teenagers/adults (very youthful adults I suppose) in the woods who find they have to fend off a pretty otherworldly looking thing. I like the film in theory; the abstract concepts of the woods being a part of our existence yet reaping a plethora of the unknown. The problem with Animal was that the characters were not that memorable or captivating, and if that happens, a film can completely crumble. This is my preface for Eve's very little screen time in this film. She is capable of so much more. And as she is a horror fan, I wanna see her do more of it.
