‘Antebellum’- An Ambitious but Original Horror: Review

(Warning, this review features references to racial violence and sexual violence) Antebellum is a difficult movie to review. Not because of any strong inherent flaw, but because it’s built around a surprise (spoilers) twist. This inevitably hits you the hardest if you know as little as possible about the film going in.
