A Not So Good Moment in Black Horror Movie History

I enjoy seeing white teens get slaughtered by unkillable slashers as the next horror fan but we'd hope Jason Voorhees and his alum would be equal opportunity slashers. The Friday the 13th series proved that even the token black guy (or girl) in the movie got some good shots in before they were ultimately slaughtered.

But one man, Julius Gaw gave Jason Voorhees a run for his money in Friday the 13th Part VIII Jason takes Manhattan.

So in honor of Black History month, let's honor the flipside of African Americans in horror movies by giving mad props to Julius. He wasn't the hero but if he'd just taken some HGH, he could have had the stamina to say "I knocked Jason Voorhees the fuck out!!"

So for that effort, we salute you Julius. And this is this week's A Not So Good Moment in Black Horror Movie history.

It's a shame he wasn't more headstrong.
Definitely, not the time to lose one's head.
That's not the way to get ahead in life.
He'll never be the head of a major corporation.

OK that's enough of the puns.
