White Devil

A horror satire set during the summer of 2020 in New York City during quarantine and the protests It tells the tale of a black woman held captive with whiteness as it mutates into monstrosity. The sole characters of the film are an interracial couple weathering quarantine rather comfortably, until the death of George Floyd upends their routine. The woman begins to grow increasingly fearful of her partner, a man outraged by - and later obsessed with - the death of Floyd. As the two grow alienated from each other, their cozy brownstone becomes a hellscape.
