This remarkable young woman, Vicaria, is driven by an unwavering belief that death is not a final destination but a treatable illness. But everything changes when her adored brother is murdered in cold blood. Vicaria’s journey to bring him back to life is fueled by grief and a desperate desire to violate the natural order.
Inspired by Mary Shelley’s classic, “Frankenstein,” “The Angry Black Girl and Her Monster” radically reimagines the story to question our assumptions about the nature of life and death.
Bomani J. Story, the film’s writer, and director, spins a riveting yarn of fortitude and defiance, probing the strength of family ties in the face of repressive social influences. The film delves into Vicaria’s tenacity and her family’s backing against the backdrop of systematic injustices and societal restraints. As they face the depths of their grief, they discover that they, too, are reborn and transformed by the experience.
Laya DeLeon plays Vicaria in the debut feature film by director Bomani J. Story. Fans of The Equalizer will undoubtedly know the Academy Award winner. Denzel Whitaker, Chad L. Coleman, Reilly Brooke Stith, and Keith Holliday also star in the movie.
The sci-fi horror film had its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival, where it received largely excellent reviews. The Angry Black Girl and Her Monster has an 86% rating on RT and has been called “audacious” and “deeply intelligent” by critics.
The website’s consensus calls it “a thrillingly assured feature debut for writer-director Bomani J. Story,” adding that it “injects a classic story with fresh innovation and social relevance.”

There are striking parallels between the social climate of 1818 and the present day. These problems have been around as long as hand-me-down sweaters and worn-out customs. Shelley’s novel was a monster of a creative masterpiece in terms of how it interpreted its themes, but it was also very well constructed.
It was thought-provoking and entertaining. “Frankenstein” touched on issues such as alienation, diversity, intolerance, and hatred. These are still the spoiled results of our modern culture.
