Everything about the Antebellum teaser is so unsettling.
From the producers of Get Out and Us, Antebellum appears to be another deeply horrifying movie that touches on the United States’ history of violent racism. It’s hard to glean the full story from this trailer, but it appears that there’s a potentially paranormal family enslaving black people to reenact the brutal and despicable setting of the antebellum South, a period where slavery was rampant before the American Civil War. Or maybe it’s about connecting the experiences of people in the past with people in the present.
Starring Janelle Monáe, Antebellum arrives in 2020.
