The bogus script doesn't leave anyone in the cast, including the usually impressive Pam Grier, much chance of a stellar performance.

It takes a full hour before anything interesting happens (believe me, I checked)...

Interesting characters and witty dialogue are overshadowed by predictable gore and an overblown climax.

...this blows supremely and it's not Snoop's fault.

A fun, over-the-top, campy horror flick starring the perfectly cast Snoop Dogg.

May be pure trash, but it's trash made with the kind of oozy psychedelic zest that powered a movie like A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors.

It's just too bad that every horror movie released these days has a numeral attached to it, or in this case...should have one.

A mangy and ungainly movie, a cluttered and uncreepy assembly of stale clichés, telegraphed scares and low-rent effects.

More creepy than scary, but it definitely jangles the nerves.

Not only painfully predictable, it is vile.

Make no bones about it... this urban frightfest is ridiculously tough to chew on!

A grotesquely uneven schlockfest with large doses of bad writing and bad acting amid the delicious moments.

Splits the difference between horror and social commentary, with pallid returns.

Bones wanted to be stylish but ended up being a waste of time.

Made with sufficient skill to produce a few shivers. Just as important, it contains enough self-mocking humor to earn a few laughs.

The story is a creepy urban parable with a fondness for 70s street culture and exploitation movies and a moral underpinning, but it never gels.

No one here escapes offensive, negative stereotyping.

With his smooth-as-smoke voice and street-strutting panache, Dogg has the makings of a genuinely great actor.

There is howler amusement here, though blaxploitative horror spoofed with so dense a pile-on loses force.
Michael Tunison
Boxoffice Magazine
October 26, 2001
Fails so completely to generate suspense, shock, dramatic momentum or anything else that a kind-hearted viewer may end up rooting for it out of sympathy as it slowly digs its own grave.
