After Candyman, Jordan Peele thinks of the new version another anti-racist horror: the black house of Wes Craven, released in 1991.
Remember the horror of 1991 The black house, directed by Wes Craven and entitled, in the original version, The People Under the Stairs? Well, know that Jordan Peele he plans to give us a remake or reboot of it, just like he did with Candyman, which in fact more than a new version is a sequel to Candyman – Terror behind the mirror. The director of Scappa – Get Out e We it will certainly be producer. It may be that he is also in charge of directing and writing, but at the moment we do not know. What we can assume is that the new horror hits theaters in the year of the thirtieth anniversary of the movie Craven, who in 2015, before dying, was thinking of transforming The black house in a tv series.
The black house, which reached a worldwide gross of over 31.5 million dollars, told the story of a poor African American boy who, in order to find the money to treat his mother with cancer, was persuaded by a friend of his sister to carry out a theft in a villa. The owners of the luxurious mansion were two crazy, horrible and cruel people who hid a terrible secret. Scary at the right point, little splatter and characterized by black fairytale tones, the film had a clear political-social value. It was in fact a denunciation of racism, a disease that poisoned the owners of the house to rob, who had nothing to envy to the witch of Hansel & Gretel. Precisely this aspect of the complaint convinced Peele, always attentive to the rights of minorities and champion of the fight against discrimination, to embark on the adventure of a makeover for the contemporary public. We await it with curioistà and in the meantime we enjoy the trailer of the original, which is a real gem.
