Harper’s Island has been full of surprises — not the least of which is that Danny Brooks (Brandon Jay McLaren), the sole black man on the island, is still alive. There’s still time for him to die horribly in the finale, or course — and if he’s watched a lot of horror movies, he’ll know he’s expected to heroically sacrifice himself to save the others. We’re going to recommend some new horror movie role models for Danny. Because while the vast majority of African Americans in mainstream horror flicks tend to bite the dust early, a few brave souls manage to survive until the credits role. Watch and learn, Danny, and you just might get out of this in one piece.
