Death is a disease... and Vicaria is going to cure it. After the brutal and sudden murder of her brother, brilliant teenager Vicaria embarks on a dangerous journey to bring him back to life. Inspired by Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, THE ANGRY BLACK GIRL AND HER MONSTER thematically challenges our ideas of life and death. Bomani J. Story, the film’s writer and director, crafts a thrilling tale about a family that, despite the terrors of systemic pressure, will survive and be reborn again.

“Bomani J. Story’s The Angry Black Girl and Her Monster is as heartbreaking as it is terrifying. The scariness doesn’t come so much from the jump scares as it does the tragic subject matter.” Cassondra Feltus, Black Girl Nerds

“…this is an essential piece of contemporary horror cinema that shows what happens when Black creators are given the space to tell their stories.” Mary Beth McAndrews, Dread Central
