In this era of smarter technology and more of television shows, movies and series. Thrill and Horror have gained immense importance. This genre has successfully managed a huge number of audiences to be hooked up to their TV screens.

The word ‘Horror’ itself causes immense amazement. Sometimes, it becomes scary though. But it really adds some spice to our monotonous lifestyles. 

So, guys, today I thought why not put forward some updates about a recent horror movie for my dearest crazy friends.

Thus, today we talk about the 2020 American horror movie, Antebellum.


This Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz directorial debut starring Janelle Monae, Eric Lange, Jena Malone, Jack Huston, Kiersey Clemons, and Gabourey Sidibe is a story about the struggle of a modern-day African American woman planning a run from a confederate army’s plantation in the Civil War front.

Antebellum was released in the US through a video on demand on September 18th, 2020. The ratings were not up to the expectations. The film only managed to score a 27% from the Rotten Tomatoes, 44% from Metacritic, and 5.5/10 from IMDB.


Critics are of the view that though the movie has an intense though, emotional touch, and a lot of darkness and suspense, the tragedies at the center tumble on.

Some also express that the movie is disordered, dispiriting, and gives its viewers a sadistic story that causes assault to one’s senses more that it touches one’s conscience. 

The film gets a 3.6/5 audience rating. But on the other side of the coin, a group of viewers is also of the view that despite some meager issues here and there this Janelle Monae film is a breathless watch and the movie deserves better.

Thus, we wish the film luck!
