Celebrating the 40th anniversaries of Blaxploitation films and films that starred Black actors during the Blaxploitation film genre. These films were released from January 1 – December 31, 1976 during the “Greatest Decade Ever” in Black cinematic history.
In honor of the 2012 Halloween season that wasn’t, due to Hurricane Sandy, the Museum of UnCut Funk has selected some Blaxploitation Horror flix trailers for your viewing pleasure. I will admit some of these movies and trailers are hard to watch. None the less, they are true Blaxploitation classics.
