Fans Are Seeing The Many Messages From Amazons Horror Film “Master”

Is Master the new Get Out?

After tickling us consistently with her goofy characters in the Scary Movie franchise, Regina Hall is back with a serious, multi-layered horror film. Master, Amazon Prime’s latest, not only spooks us with supernatural and psychological scares, but also the horrors of racism prevalent in our society.

Amazon Prime

Master is set in Ancaster, a prestigious and predominantly white college in New England, and follows the lives of three Black women on campus whose lives intertwine.

They are: Gail Bishop (Regina Hall), the first Black master of one of the residential houses of the college; Jasmine Moore (Zoe Renee), a freshman; and Liv Beckman (Amber Gray), a professor who is seeking tenure.

Making things sinister are an urban legend about the college being haunted by a witch who faced trial on the college grounds, and a horrendous episode in the 1960s when Ancaster’s first Black student committed suicide in the very room that is now being occupied by Jasmine.

Let’s see what viewers are saying about this horror social commentary:


Master is the director’s first feature and seems it is quite a success.

Mariama Diallo’s MASTER remains among the best 2022 films so far. Smart, enthralling horror film mining supernatural shocks from inherent horrors. Regina Hall is immaculate. Really hope people seek this out (currently streaming on Prime)

The real horror doesn’t lie in some dark corner or a creepy room with creaking door. It’s lies out in the open, in front of everyone.

I’m watching #Master and even tho’ Regina Hall is experiencing some scary shit, the scariest part of the movie so far is seeing this Black girl at a predominantly white college, they’re invading her personal space, screaming “Nigga” during songs, I would have gotten expelled.

Good to see that the people are noticing the subliminal themes.

Everything about Master on Amazon Prime was disturbing, deep, and symbolic and just absolutely nuts. Regina Hall did her thing. An insane movie

Unsurprisingly, some are feeling confused as the movie leaves some questions unanswered.

Some were hoping for a good old witch haunting movie (probably like Fear Street trilogy).

I wished the movie “Master” on Amazon Prime would’ve focused more on the damn Witch storyline…

The movie seems to have got the real life situation quite correctly.

I know this movie was confusing to some, but as a black person who attended a primarily white university, I can say this is accurate. And after I left, I realized nothing was going to change, and it hasn’t. #master amazon

This is something which almost all the viewers, despite their different opinions about the movie, agree upon.

So many racist microaggresion in the first 20 minutes watching this movie #Master #ReginaKing on Amazon Prime has got me so what triggered. I’m trying my hardest not talk to the T.V but I keep having really long sighs/with some cussing under my breath, Oh and Alot of eye rolling

Regina Hall has certainly proved that she can handle serious horror movies quite well.

I just watched #Master on Prime Video. Regina Hall is brilliant in this well crafted movie. Let’s get her some more roles as the lead character. Acting chops on display.

There’s at least one person who can empathize with Jasmine.

I’m watching Master on amazon and several of the reviews say white people won’t be able to understand it.

Maybe, but I understand how shitty teenage girls are and how incredibly shitty roommates can be. I’m already getting pissed off for Jasmine.

Some people felt that the movie had a defeatist message.

Yeah wasn’t a fan of #Master on Amazon Prime. It was written well and the cinematography was great. But it felt like the end message was to just give up. And we never found out if that hoe was white or not ?????

Not everyone loved the ending.

While I appreciated the movie #Master on Amazon Prime w/ the amazing Regina Hall & Amber Gray (Hadestown!), I have one gripe: the character Jazmine and the ending. Let’s give Blk students in elite places some credit. Despite the isolation & obstacles, they’re amazingly resilient!

And some viewers were totally mad at the movie and the bleak fate of its characters.

Yeah that Master movie on amazon pissed me all the way the fuck off. The microaggressions, how the had the main characters story end, how the movie ended all together….
