I'm a Survivor: Black Actors Who Didn't Die in Horror Films
Jada Pinkett-Smith in Demon Knight
In this beloved 1995 horror comedy, Jada Pinkett-Smith plays one of a group of misfits hiding out in a church who fall prey to the super-evil Collector (played by Billy Zane), who is after a key that holds the "power of darkness." Campy, gory fun ensues, and many of the church's inhabitants are either killed or possessed by the Collector, leaving Pinkett-Smith custodian of the key. But the film's final scene suggests that while Pinkett-Smith survives, perhaps evil follows her.
