I'm a Survivor: Black Actors Who Didn't Die in Horror Films
Duane Martin in Scream 2
Jada Pinkett-Smith didn't survive the opening credits of this sequel to runaway hit Scream, but Martin had better luck. As journalist Gale Weathers' reluctant cameraman Joel, Martin had the good sense to bounce when the dead bodies started piling up. Trivia: Martin's character was meant to be murdered in the original ending of the film, but when the script leaked on the internet, director Wes Craven changed his fate.
