The gerne-bending meta-horror, The Blackening, arrives on digital August 15 and 4K Ultra HD™ Combo Pack (+Blu-ray™ & Digital), Blu-ray™ (+DVD & Digital), and DVD on August 22 from Lionsgate. The Blackening follows a group of Black friends reunited for a Juneteenth weekend getaway only to find themselves trapped in a remote cabin with a masked killer who forces them to play a twisted board game by his rules, which they soon realize ain’t no motherf****** game.
