Just when you think you’ve seen everything something pops up out of nowhere and makes you go Ummm! Interesting. Let’s be honest we all have seen it coming and now it’s here.
Yes, you heard it right “Karen” is the title for Coke Daniels’ next horror movie.
The trailer for Daniels’s Karen landed on YouTube on June 17 and the movie reflects the basic concept of one’s encounter with “Karen” but like a horror movie.
What’s it about?
Orange Is the New Black alum Taryn Manning portrays the nameless neighbor from hell who had vowed to unleash violent havoc on her newly moved black neighbor’s life.
Jasmine Burke and Cory Hardrict play community activist Imani and her husband Malik, who have just relocated to the Atlanta suburb.
In the beginning, the couple isn’t concerned about their innocuous neighbor. even joking that they have a “white, entitled neighbor called Karen and before they know things started to get dangerous.
Not only does this Karen has a layered Supercut hairstyle but she also has ties with the local police.
Manning is acclaimed for her performance in the long-running Netflix’s original “Orange Is the New Black” for her portrayal of Karen Drexler- a racist white woman. With her, all evil Karen powers Manning conspires to drive the nice Black family out of the Atlanta Suburb. A trailer, which was released later, showcases the real-life ‘Karen’ experience.
Many have condemned the entire idea of the movie ‘Karen’ saying that the real-life Karens were enough to deal with.
Many have called Karen the recent example of Comedians Jordan and Peele-inspired horror that fails to impress its viewers. Some people have also linked this to Tanning’s last year comments where the “Hustle and Flow’ actress supported America’s former President Donald Trump while using QAnon theories.
During an interview with Deadline Manning said that she felt a “social obligation” to play the role”. “Even if I had to play the villain to affect change around the globe, then I was more than willing to step into the role. What’s been going on is devastating. It’s time for change and for me to be a part of the bigger picture, meant a lot to me,” she added.
