We’ve come full circle.

‘Karen’ is a new upcoming horror film that is based around a racist neighbour called, you guessed it, ‘Karen’ who terrorises her neighbours.

Goes full steam ahead with the ‘Karen’ phenomenon that I’m sure we’re all aware of by now, the film attempts to bring light to racist and intolerant behaviour found in middle-class ‘white’ neighbourhoods in America.

While I love Taryn Manning, she’s a talent and she’s a perfect choice for the role of Karen, the film itself doesn’t look that good.

Manning spoke to Deadline about the ‘social responsibility’ she felt to take on the role… but this is where it gets complicated.

“Even if I had to play the villain to affect change around the globe, then I was more than willing to step into the role,” she said. “What’s been going on is devastating. It’s time for change and for me to be a part of the bigger picture, meant a lot to me.”

‘Karen’  has come under a lot of criticism, many thinking it basically took all the good stuff from Jordan Peele films like ‘Get Out’ and churned out something that’s not scary and not new.
