Slow to start, the sleek looking Bones is more silly than scary.

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.
A mangy and ungainly movie, a cluttered and uncreepy assembly of stale clichés, telegraphed scares and low-rent effects.
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.
Made with sufficient skill to produce a few shivers. Just as important, it contains enough self-mocking humor to earn a few laughs.
Too much of Bones feels transplanted from genre staples like Hellraiser.
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.
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.
If you're looking for one of the worst horror films ever made, then Bones may be the one you're looking for. Starring Snoop Dogg in the title role, Bones is an uneven mess and quite simply a bad film. This is a poorly made horror film that has too many clichéd moments from other, better horror films. Bones fails on so many levels that you don't even know were to begin. This is trash, a poorly made horror film that has an interesting story, but is so poorly executed that it ends up being a waste of time. This is a pointless excuse for a horror film and those who green lit this piece of crap should drop out of the filmmaking business. The elements that comprise the story have been overdone so many times and the acting here is plainly horrible. A waste of time is the best way to describe this poorly crafted horror yarn. This is a stupid film lacking anything creative about its story and the acting is plainly awful. Well, what do you expect from Snoop Dogg, he's a terrible "artist" his music sucks, and his acting sucks even more. He should retire altogether because he's plainly a horrible "musician" and "actor". This film is terrible, the acting is terrible and the story has been done many times before, and better done as well. A terrible horror film that only Snoop fans will enjoy and I don't even know why. As a diehard fan of the genre, I say avoid this film like the plague. Bones is one mess that really can't get cleaned up.
It does have extremely creepy & disturbing moments & visuals, & has some interesting characters, but the film is just slow, & then towards the ending it gets predictable.
Snoop Dogg is not a bad actor, & he plays his role just fine, but even he & the other cast members can't save the film from being rather silly & slow. As for the blood & gore, there's plenty of it, but the majority of it relies on maggots & tons of gore that just grosses out more than scares.
Silly but a really good film.
For a haunted house movie starring Snoop Dogg...I gotta say, it's not that bad. It does a good job of setting things up and looks pretty good, but just has nothing real special to offer.
