Very disturbing; a great deal of violence and sexual violence. But also an interesting story in the second half of the movie...

interesting concept, but graphic

"Antebellum" is not a historical treatment of the horror of slavery. Its expressionism (not realism) explores the cruelty and trauma suffered by the enslaved through an original screenplay. The impact of slavery's destruction of the family structure and culture of the enslaved persists to this day. Many Americans brainwashed by the big lie of American exceptionalism are unable to see how the past shapes the present. "Antebellum" exposes the lie of the gracious, heroic Southerner by expanding Confederate statues to the size of a county of plantations. Drop your expectations to fully appreciate this film. It is truly an original.

Reminded me just a tiny bit of the movie the 2005 M.Night Shyamalan "The Village" but yet not.

When i really think about it,this slavery celluloid is really an empty and feminist copycat of Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" film.It tries to be slick,but falls flat on its attempt to go over my head.This is literally the bottom of the barrel for slavery celluloid i have ever seen so far to date,period.It most definitely reminds me of why i am sick and tired of being sick and tired of this slavery genre,period.

Thought it was a horror based off the cover art. Found out it was more like the movie "Get Out." Great thriller, it pays off.

This movie could be accused of being exploitative up until the end when the metaphor comes full circle and you realize that history and its remembrance is more violent for some then it is for others. I can't say more without spoiling the ending.

Not an attractive film for me at all, therefore one star rating.

2020 movie. A really good drama-thriller. And a unique surprise ending.
