Hood Of Horror
It AIN'T all good in da hood.
A hip hop horror anthology of three tales of terror told by the Hound of Hell (Snoop Dogg) that revolve around the residents of an inner-city neighborhood whose actions determine where they will go in the afterlife.
This is a horror anthology with a linking device starring Snoop Dogg as a dead gangbanger who has to collect souls for the devil. He finds four horrible people who die in supernatural circumstances. Each person's tale forms one of the segments. With its emphasis on African-American culture and street life, the film is reminiscent of Tales from the Hood, but without the too-easy moralizing that mars that film. Appearances by Ernie Hudson, Billy Dee Williams, and Danny Trejo improve the film; a brief appearance by WCW superstar Diamond Dallas Page does not. Slightly above average, but none of the segments knock it out of the park.
Never realised until leprechaun in the hood there's such a thing as hiphop horror, and now this: Snoop Dogg as the Cribkeeper...oh dear,
also COSTANZA?! Wha?
Some crazy gore in this and the animated bits are well done. Snoop is, of course, amazing!
