An Exclusive Taste of Horror Comedy: You are Invited to 'THE BLACKENING' Advance Screening

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS - Greetings, Texas foodies and cinephiles! At Eat Drink Local Texas, we love connecting our community with unforgettable experiences that blend our favorite things: food, drink, and culture. And we are thrilled to announce that we are adding a dash of horror and a sprinkle of comedy to your palette!

We have partnered with the creators of the upcoming horror-comedy film, THE BLACKENING, for a mouthwatering event you won't want to miss.

About the Movie

From the director who brought us heartwarming and hilarious films like 'Ride Along' and 'Barbershop,' and the co-writer who delivered the hilarious comedy 'Girls Trip,' comes a new film that pushes boundaries - THE BLACKENING.

The Blackening centers around a group of Black friends who reunite for a Juneteenth weekend getaway only to find themselves trapped in a remote cabin with a twisted killer. Forced to play by his rules, the friends soon realize this ain’t no motherf****** game.

Directed by Tim Story (Ride Along, Think Like A Man, Barbershop) and screenplay and screen story by Tracy Oliver (Girls Trip, Harlem) & Dewayne Perkins (The Amber Ruffin Show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine), The Blackening skewers genre tropes and poses the sardonic question: if the entire cast of a horror movie is Black, who dies first?

Blending laughs and chills, THE BLACKENING is an intriguing cinematic feast that serves up suspense with a side of humor, just the way we love our Texas BBQ. It's a dish of horror-comedy that promises to make you laugh, scream, and keep you entertained until the last credit rolls.
