  • I like the idea of the twist it just doesn't make any damn sense. 1. Public park 2. Lots of people involved 3. It's a fucking senator Not one person noticed that something fishy was going on? Not one person let it slip that black people were actually being kidnapped and enslaved? Not one detective or private investigator for all those missing black people couldn't trace them there? It's not like they were mastermind human trafficking. They just pick public figures up in public places in front of their friends. If they were scooping up homeless people off the street and smuggling them to some nowhere place and had no name people running the show it would make more sense. But that's not what the movie did...

  • Movies as in everything in life are relative. If you tell me this is an amazing movie from the producers of Get Out and Us, I'll think this movie was a big letdown. Since I just watched this on HULU and I was comparing it to all the other HULU, NetFlix movies, I thought this movie was great. It's well above average from the mass of online movies.

  • I actually like the concept they were trying to go for in the movie. It made sense to me. 🤷🏽‍♀️ imagine getting kidnapped and put into a Reenactment of a plantation. But they really turn you into a slave. My only thing is the dialect was boring.

  • It sounded pretty cool! Subverting expectations that's nice! I don't really get why people didn't like it

  • This movie wasn't all that bad. I don't see why people are upset it wasn't gory and scary. There are such things as thrillers people! 😂 But also I think it's pretty horrifying that because she didn't time travel or share thoughts with her ancestor, but was kidnapped at taken to a place that existed in real time that something like this could actually exist. And I liked how her name was Eden and throughout the movie she stood out like the garden of Eden, with her clothing and everything. So the movie was great. Loved it!

  • The beginning of the movie gave away the twist, the run away slave had a tattoo. The movie was let down because no one said the n word(I'm black) once, it's too unrealistic to me. It made the movie SJW crap/pc to me. The lack of n word made the whole slavery thing silly to me. You can beat, rape, and kill but better not call them the n word? Um ok , weak sauce.

  • wow. I am so surprised by the "meh" reviews on Antebellum! I was totally amazed and thought it was a really good movie. The ending is supposed to be surprising because there really ARE racist white people in power in the USA, and there ARE people who probably wish they could do what the bad guys in the movie did. It is saddening and sickening. And they didn't use the "N" word once in this movie. Anyone notice?

    • Yes, and it made the movie too fake and movie for me. I'm black and have seen whites call each other n word ,but racists role playing wouldn't? Fake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ...So yeah, I think life experiences and identities will play a major part in how people interpret the film. I personally loved it, but then again, me and the reviewer have nothing in common- experience wise. Analysing outfit changes rather than the abuse and racism themes is a major yikes. But like I said, it just goes to show how experience plays a part in what you find meaningful or relative.

  • Oh fuck....okay yeah this movie was definitely not done right if this is what they were going for. I had been wanting to see this movie for a while. I watched it last night and was interrupted by a family member . I just tried to watch it again today and paused it where the cell phones came into place cause I'm like wait a minute. This movie would have been 100 times better if done right. After this explanation I understand now but damn, this movie could have really been good

    • I'm black and the film makes no sense at all. How the fudge did they kidnap a bunch of people for their little LARPing fantasy to make more authentic and not have families wondering where their relatives are? Why didn't none of these modern day black people not fight back? Why go along? They out number those psychos. This movie was just bull in how easily people were easily kidnaped and held prisoner in a public Civil War reenactment park.

  • ~ I found it enjoyable and interesting and yes obviously sad as we know people are still trafficked/enslaved/abused today. As for the "twist" the clues were plentiful. I am not surprised by all the negativity it's a rough subject ~ I always thought the reenactments were pretty selective and odd...small piece of the monstrous picture!!

  • I was looking for a breakdown of this movie without having to watch it and you totally nailed it. The ideals of the people re-enacting slavery are not out dated as much as they are actually insane. The people who carried out such things are psychopaths. The butterflies are representative to DNA memory or epigenetic’s. Epigenetic’s is how trauma is passed through DNA to future generations. The monarch butterfly and deer have embedded things like how to get to the stream of water where to go to survive and build cocoons in their DNA memory. The trauma of slavery lives in black peoples DNA memory.

  • Reading these comments jeez its a fucking psychological horror movie. Do you question the plot holesof horror movies with white teens in the middle of summer camps who get murdered? Yall don't. Atleast not like how people are picking holes here. It was interesting to me. Everything doesn't have to have a message, sometimes things are just there to make you feel uneasy, not to make it into something thought provoking.

    • @Erykah Adams Brainwashed? Really? Modern day Black Americans are just going to sit back and let some crazy far right group try to live out the good 'ol days at their expense? Naw it don't work that way and you know it. This wasn't 1860, this was 2020 and you know those people would have kicked those LARPers asses and report them to local authority.

      Thief Rikku0306Thief Rikku030620 ngày trước
    • @Thief Rikku0306 sure they could. Literally the main character did by the end of the movie. But we also see them take extreme measures against people who did try to escape in the beginning. Not to mention thats like asking why didn't the actual slaves rebel and escape. These people were essentially brainwashed into helplessness. Not to mention in the movie the people don't even know where they are or how far from civilization they were.

      Erykah AdamsErykah Adams20 ngày trước
    • How about you are kidnaped by some crazy far right group for their LARPing as Civil War era soliders and civilians and striped of all your freedom and forced to work out in the field as our ancestors did? They aren't far as they are in a Civil War reenactment park. They can fucking escape.

  • I loved the twist, I thought it made the horror so much more significant and added prospective. It's easy to imagine someone born into slavery becoming institutionalised and accepting their plight as "normal" but to take someone who has enjoyed the freedoms and rights of a modern civilised world and literally transport them back to that era, would be somehow, at least mentally, even more horrific.

  • What an absolute garbage movie. Would have been better if it was an ancestor/descendant plot, where at night, while Veronica sleeps, instead of dreaming, she switches to her past life. Then upon morning, she wakes up back as Veronica, neither identity has any memory of each other. I dont know if I can explain it any better than that but yeah...the movie we got was just another bullshoot 'wypipo bad then and now' plot. Def didnt help the current situation where MxSxM & fake prgressxves already blame everything on whxte ppl. But then again, media doesnt want humans to unite & be equal. Humans thrive off hate.

  • I actually liked it a little bit, and I think the "role-playing" would have been far more interesting, if used better, than the scyfi idea of traveling to the past, ancestors, or anything else along those lines. The scify is predictable, and maybe not so interesting to me. Forcing people or breaking their spirits to the point they re-enact something like that? that's creepy as hell and not so far from what some people want, making it even scarier. I just wished they had played their timelines better, the connections and the characters as well. I mean, Veronica's character was quite good, but the senators? the daughter's? they were extremely lame. XP

Did you SEE THE INTRO AT ALL? Name another movie who has an insane intro like that other than Django Unchained. Did you see the camera work when she was upside down and how they portrayed both past and present in one scene!? The movie depicted slavery crucially accurate, and also show cased how economic racism and inequality has evolved in today world. The movie was a simple racism back then vs today. Remember the quote in the beginning? That was explained throughout the whole movie. Remember when she was arguing with the white older man on the news? They were showcasing racism in today’s world. The movie not only had amazing imagery and accuracy on the past but the present as well.

Do not be mistaken the movie kindred is NOT the same thing. Because I already new about the book I actually really liked the movie, I was glad they didn’t just water down the plot of kindred into a shitty movie version.

I think your problem is, that you think its a horror movie, when this movie is far more about existential horror, about how our country, still has so many pathetic dumb racists, that something like this could actually happen. It absolutely could. I mean girls have been kidnapped and kept in a single room for years inside. Of a regular neighbor hood. I think you may just have a hard time relating tonthis movies main character and thats why you find it uninteresting. That or maybe you side with the Confederates perhaps
