Comedy horror directed by Tim Story. The Blackening (2023) centers around a group of Black friends who reunite for a Juneteenth weekend getaway only to find themselves trapped in a remote cabin with a twisted killer. Forced to play by his rules, the friends soon realize this ain’t no m-fing game.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Lisa: This little reunion about to crack. We got the whole crew back!
Dewayne: Really b**ch? A cabin in the woods?
Nnamdi: You still a slave to the white man?
King: Y’all got to stop calling my wife the white man, alright?
Morgan: [as the door creaks open] Yoh, stop playing. I got a gun. Damn.
Morgan: [as she grunts] That’s too DMX. What am I doing?
Allison: Ten! That is what we do on Juneteenth!
King: [as they’re a power outage] Oh, hell no!
Allison: Where are you going?
King: To look for the fuse box.
Dewayne: What kind of house is this?
Dewayne: [as they enter the game room] No. No thank you.
Lisa: [referring to the board game] The Blackening?
King: Jim Crow Monopoly.
Shawn: S**t probably runs on racism.
Blackening: Pick a card and save Morgan.
King: What did he mean save Morgan?
Blackening: Refuse to play and she dies.
Lisa: I think we have to play the game.
Lisa: [reading from the card] In your predicament, the black character is always the first to die. I will spare your lives if you sacrifice the person you deem the blackest.
Allison: The blackest?
Nnamdi: Nobody should judge anybody in here.
Blackening: You have two minutes to decide.
King: Shanika. She say n**** the most.
Dewayne: Y’all can’t pick me! I’m gay.
Clifton: I can prove I’m not the blackest.
Shanika: Prove it!
Clifton: I’ve never seen Friday. I voted for Trump.
Dewayne: We need a plan.
Allison: I’m going to say it.
Lisa: Don’t you dare!
King: Don’t say this dumb s**t.
Allison: We have to split up.
Blackening: Your time has run out. It’s time to die.
King: There’s a crazy person out here hunting us. You got Rosa Parks on your shirt, right? We should be sitting down right now?
Allison: I mean, that’s exactly what she did.
Shanika: [to King] N***, shut up!
Lisa: Why black women got to save everyone all the goddamn time!
