Some of the scariest movies feature talented casts of African American or Black actors and actresses. The top Black horror movies focus on social issues that can be explored in unique ways. This is a list of all the greatest Black scary movies including everything from Jordan Peele's Get Out to Wes Craven's A Vampire in Brooklyn.

This list of African American horror movies blends subgenres like horror comedies with Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Holloween and horror thrillers like The Candyman. You'll even find Snoop Dogg and Pam Grier below starring in the hood horror film Bones. Wesley Snipes's Blade franchise and Spawn could be considered both a Black horror movie and a Black superhero movie.
