A fun, over-the-top, campy horror flick starring the perfectly cast Snoop Dogg.
| Original Score: 6/10
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.
| Original Score: B
More creepy than scary, but it definitely jangles the nerves.
Made with sufficient skill to produce a few shivers. Just as important, it contains enough self-mocking humor to earn a few laughs.
With his smooth-as-smoke voice and street-strutting panache, Dogg has the makings of a genuinely great actor.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
An amusing retro ride.
It probably won't make one hide under the bed, but Bones should more than satisfy horror movie fans, as it employs a believable plot, just-enough spooky elements and a dose of dark humor.
A watchable haunt from the 'hood for this Halloween.
Fine trash entertainment.
Bones is a ghetto fabulous blaxploitation freak show that will surely swish over people's heads.
| Original Score: 3/4
In exalting the very worst of humanity, Bones displays a special glee and an unusual density of scary imagery.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Classier, handsomer and smarter than you'd expect.
Its transitions often are sloppy and crude. But it brandishes its excesses like a loud, retro suit.
Stylish and ingratiatingly goofy.
The bogus script doesn't leave anyone in the cast, including the usually impressive Pam Grier, much chance of a stellar performance.
| Original Score: 1/5

| Original Score: 0.5/5
It takes a full hour before anything interesting happens (believe me, I checked)...
