Roommates, we ALL know what a “Karen” is … and now there’s a movie about “her” racist antics hitting theaters soon, and to get audiences ready, she just released a new trailer. In our first look at “Karen,” starring Taryn Manning, Cory Hardrict, and Jasmine Burke, we get close to a racist white woman who tries to make life miserable for her new black neighbors.
Taking his title from the often racist and highly problematic behavior of select white women, “Karen” is a horror thriller from director Coke Daniels that promises to offer an unfiltered look at current race relations in the US In addressing what led him to direct the film, Daniels said “The Last year during the global pandemic and civil unrest, I, like many of us, felt anger, despair and hopelessness. The overwhelming amount of support from people around the world, who want to see change, has been a great inspiration. “
“Karen” is described as follows:
“Karen Drexler (Manning) is a racist white woman on a mission to make life really uncomfortable for the new high-level black family that has moved next door in an Atlanta suburb. Karen’s neighbors are the community activist Malik (Hardrict) and his wife Imani (Burke), who will have to go through hell and return to deal with Karen’s increasingly unhinged behavior. “
Speaking about her role as the main character, Taryn Manning explained why she felt compelled to take on the role. “I felt the social responsibility of assuming this role. Even if he had to play the villain to bring about change around the world, he was more than willing to take on the role. What has been happening is devastating. It’s time to change and for me being part of the bigger picture, it meant a lot to me. “
The release date for “Karen” will be announced in the coming weeks.
