Tales From the Hood (1995) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Revenge/horror motif played out again and again and again, but this time with racial implications. Three drug-dealing thugs look for a stash in a funeral parlor and get the grand tour from Mr. Simms, the truly creepy mortician. As they pass the open caskets, Simms relates gruesome stories about the occupants’ deaths to the increasingly restless young men. Each one of them falls to the vengeance of the supernatural theme, and it gets truly old. Nothing original is introduced, except that most of the stories take place in an urban setting. Produced by Spike Lee in an attempt to prove that bad horror doesn’t discriminate, either. —Keith Simanton
Synopsis:A strange funeral director tells four strange tales of horror with an African American focus to three drug dealers he traps in his place of business.
