The Equalizer plays the 17-year-old Vicaria, with Denzel Whitaker of
Black Panther co-starring as a character named Kango. Chad L. Coleman, from The Walking Dead, is also in this cast. Executive produced by Jeremy Elliott and Jasmine Johnson. Story said this about the film: “Growing-up, I loved watching Monster movies with my older sibling. We rarely, if at all, saw films that addressed issues that were important to our generation, and featured people who looked similar to us. It has been a dream of mine to bring an adaptation of Frankenstein to film through the black lens with a lead character as smart as my sister. Crypt was a strong advocate of this story from the beginning, but it all came together when Laya stepped in to play Vicaria. What an amazing team.
“I’m very curious to see what The Angry Black Girl and Her Monster is like, so I will definitely be watching the movie at some point down the line. It will be available on VOD, digital and Shudder next month. Are there any movies you’re looking forward to? Please leave a comment and scroll down to see the poster.
