oh. more horror:

J.D's Revenge

The House of Dies Drear

The Haunted Mansion (horror comedy)

Vampire in Brooklyn

Def by Temptation

My indy produced Holla If I Kill You

I am assuming  you mean a movie where (1) the character has more than five lines (Steve Harris in Minority Report) and (2) made it all the way to the end of the movie, or fairly close (Samuel L. Jackson in Jurassic Park).

Off the top of my head:

 

Fantasy

Green Mile, The

Space Jam (?)

Watermelon Man

 

Horror

Crazy as Hell

Devil’s Advocate, The

 

Science Fiction

2010: Odyssey Two

Alien

Alien Resurrection

Alien v. Predator

Alien3

Aliens

Andromeda Strain, The (1971 and 2008)

Armageddon

Childhood's End (TV Series)

Chronicles

Cloud Atlas

Congo

Deep Blue Sea

Deep Impact

Galaxy Quest

Ghostbusters (1, 2 and Reboot)

Hancock

Independence Day (and the two sequels)

Iron Man (1, 2, and 3)

Johnny Mnemonic

Man from Earth, The

Matrix, The (1, 2 and 3)

Meteor Man

Planet of the Apes (all five movies)

Predator  (1 and 2)

Solaris

Sphere

Star Trek (all 13 movies)

Star Wars (II, III, V, VI and VII*)

Steel

Super-8

Terminator: Judgment Day

Thing, The (1984)

(Just a thought: As THE Black Science Fiction Society… Shouldn’t we be keeping a record of these things anyway?)

*If you count black actors doing voice work, Episodes I, IV, V, and VI as well.

LOL right? Who do I talk to about this lol?

But yeah everyone thanks, I will update my list. We really should have a category for this somewhere

A lot of these films I had seen. "The Serpent and the Rainbow" is classic! Never figured someone would mention that film, again. Thank You for sharing.

He sat at his desk, woozy. He tried to move, his arms unresponsive. He searched for help, moving into the aisle in his swivel chair only to find all his coworkers had abandoned him. Was he being drugged? If so, it was the simplest scene he could imagine.Whoever was trying this was extremely stupid or extremely powerful. He'd find out soon enough.

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
