‘The Angry Black Girl and Her Monster’ Trailer Reinterprets ‘Frankenstein’ For Modern Age

Death is a disease that must be cured in The Angry Black Girl and Her Monster, a modern reinterpretation of Mary Shelley’s seminal novel, Frankenstein.

A brand new trailer introduces the reimagining that gives a new spin on the mad scientist archetype, with an emphasis on mad.

RLJE Films will release The Angry Black Girl and Her Monster in theaters, on VOD and on Digital on June 9, 2023.

In the film, “Vicaria is a brilliant teenager who believes death is a disease that can be cured. After the brutal and sudden murder of her brother, she embarks on a dangerous journey to bring him back to life. Inspired by Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, The Angry Black Girl and Her Monster thematically challenges our ideas of life and death. Bomani J. Story, the film’s writer and director, crafts a thrilling tale about a family that, despite the terrors of systemic pressure, will survive and be reborn again.”

Bomani J. Story wrote and directed The Angry Black Girl and Her Monster.

Laya DeLeon Hayes (“The Equalizer”), Denzel Whitaker (“Black Panther”) and Chad L. Coleman (“The Walking Dead”), Reilly Brooke Stith, and Keith Holliday star. Story produces along with Jack Davis and Darren Brandl.

Angry is a unique story from the great mind of Bomani J. Story and Crypt TV — powerfully brought to life on screen by Laya DeLeon Hayes,” said RLJE’s Mark Ward previously. “We cannot wait for the genre community to experience the film at SXSW for the first time.”

In our review out of SXSW, where Story’s debut made its world premiere, I wrote, “runs a classic literary horror story through a modern urban lens, connecting the mad scientist with a young woman forced to fix society’s most elusive problems. In this instance, it’s death. While less successful as a straightforward horror movie, Story’s empathetic approach combined with Hayes’s complex and nuanced portrayal makes for a profoundly human story that evokes respect and hope.”
