Ten Things You’ll Never See Black People Doing in Horror Movies

When I’m not terrorizing readers I review indie horror and science fiction films for both my personal blog and I think watching horror movies should be an ‘interactive’ activity (which is why I watch them alone) and the more I yell at the people on the screen the more fun I’m having.  

Now as a black person who writes horror, and reviews horror movies I am somewhat of an expert on this subject. Today I am going to share with you ten things you’ll never see black people doing in horror movies. If you are a non-black person heed these warnings, book mark this page, write them down, or commit them to memory … these tips and tricks may very well help you survive! lol

10. Solving puzzles that open portals to Hell.
  9. Have sex in the bunk beds of recently renovated summer camps
  8. Adopt a child belonging to the Devil.
  7. Go to the nearby deserted-looking house to phone for help.       
  6. Allowing a crew member with a hideous parasite attached to his body back on the spaceship.
  5.  Going in or out “there,” there being the dark attic, closet, barn, basement, alley, the woods or the lake.
  4. Opening the closed door, especially if scratching, heavy breathing, or any other strange noises are heard from the other side.
  3. Camp or build homes on Indian burial grounds.
  2. NOT inquire as to why the estate is being sold so cheap.

  1. Staying in a house after the house tells you to get out.

The Order of The Sentinels.
The Order of The Learned.
The Order of The Writs.
The Order of the Cloth.
Trapped and isolated, the residents of Fates Keep come to realize that they are not alone…
In a world with two realities the imaginations of author’s Crystal Connor and Lori Titus are unleashed upon the unsuspecting people living in the Foothills of Mt. Empyreal and the fate of all the world hangs in the balance.
One town. One catastrophe. One story told two different ways. What started in the foothills of Mt. Empyreal could be the end of us all.

Excerpt from The End is Now by Connor Titus:

When deception and lies ascended to paradise, all silver-tongued and golden haired, Emerson was already dead, Jerrod was on earth, Jason was on patrol, and William, the youngest of the Celestials, was on duty.
Rythy was chained to her cell with irons of fire; the bars of her chamber had been fortified with the blessings from God himself and her wings had been clipped. She was fed, but only given enough to eat to sustain life ... not strengthen it.
Regardless, William was terrified of her.
And more so of late as she no longer yanked her chains while hurling protest and insults. Instead, she sat, like a cat with her tail wrapped around her feet.
He liked it better when she acted like a caged animal.
William hadn’t seen Emerson or Jerrod for days, but was just as relieved when he looked up from the logbook and saw Dianna.
Looking into her golden face was like being roused from some terrible dream. “Boy, I am sure glad to see you; did you come to audit the log?”
He turned the book so that she could see it. There was only one problem, the officer he was speaking to was not Dianna.
“Oh, William, I almost forgot,” Dianna started as she rounded the corner and came face to face with her...self.

Rythy started laughing, and with impeachable timing and flawless execution, all hell broke loose in heaven.

About the Author:
Washington State native Crystal Connor has been terrorizing readers since before Jr. high School and loves anything to do with monsters, bad guys, rogue scientific experiments, jewelry, sky-high high heel shoes & unreasonably priced hang bags. She is also considering changing her professional title to ‘dramatization specialist’ because it’s so much more theatrical than being just a mere drama queen.

Well, just to clarify The End is Now and The Guardians aren’t actually a co-authored. They are however part of a shared universe which is Fate’s Keep, Mt. Empyreal other than that The End is Now is totally all me, likewise The Guardian’s of Man is 100% Lori’s … two completely different stories, taking place in the same town.
This tour is for The End is Now, but keep an eye out for The Guardians of Man once Lori starts promoting her book!
