Asjha Cooper in Black As Night
It’s most fitting for veteran thespian Keith David to be a vampire master in Amazon’s Black As Night. And for Asjha Cooper, the be that young vampire hunter seeking to stop the vampire infestation.
Here’s the synopsis of Black As Night:
A resourceful teenage girl leaves childhood behind when she battles a group of deadly vampires in Black As Night, an action-horror hybrid with a strong social conscience and a biting sense of humor. Fifteen years after Hurricane Katrina ravaged New Orleans, a new threat leaves its mark on the Big Easy in the form of puncture wounds on the throats of the city’s vulnerable displaced population. When her drug-addicted mom becomes the latest victim of the undead, 15-year-old Shawna (Asjha Cooper) vows to even the score. Along with three trusted friends, Shawna hatches a bold plan to infiltrate the vampire’s mansion in the historic French Quarter, destroy their leader, and turn his fanged disciples back to their human form. But killing monsters is no easy task, and soon Shawna and her crew find themselves caught in a centuries-old conflict between warring vampire factions, each fighting to claim New Orleans as their permanent home.
The rest of the cast includes Fabrizio Guido, Mason Beauchamp, Abbie Gayle, and Craig Tate. Maritte Lee Go directed the movie from a script written by Sherman Payne.
