Sites of Horror

This month's Sites of Horror focuses on the almost forgotten sub genre of film termed Blaxploitation. I found two great sites that have very different takes on the genre (both horror and mainstream- or as mainstream as you can get with black cinema in the 60s and 70s)

First off, collects just about every black horror film ever made, indexing and reviewing many of them. There are some surprising titles included in their index. If you ever wanted to know the history of black horror look no further.

Our second choice for this month, Blaxploitation Pride, is probably the most happening place for blaxploitation cinema, and is easily the most thorough index of black cinema I've ever seen. There is a warning before entering and I would take it seriously. There is some language and images that are not work safe. Enjoy!
