Lack of cohesion blows holes in urban ghost movie.

Full of fits and starts, it never really gets going, stalling at every turn without even giving us enough of what we paid to see -- Snoop Dogg and gore.

Too much of Bones feels transplanted from genre staples like Hellraiser.

To point out little flaws in this one would be like looking at a demolished car and complaining that the taillight doesn't work.

Nothing sums up the film better than its parting shot, in which maggots are projectile vomited directly toward the audience.

Make no Bones about it, Snoop's latest starring movie role is a real dog.

The promotional tagline for Bones fittingly reads, 'Unleash the Dogg.' The filmmakers sure did, and in more ways than one.

The last half-hour falls apart, with a shower of maggots, stage blood, catchphrases and nonsensical plot devices.

If grossness gives you the giggles, at least a couple of the movie's effects indeed put a little 'wow' in this cinematic bowwow.

Although Snoop's fans might enjoy the proceedings, even blood and gore aficionados might be disappointed by the unrealistic looking mayhem that's put on display here.

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.

Only Pam Grier, the veteran of the last golden age of Blacksploitation cinema, acquits herself admirably here.

A silly, boring supernatural thriller that squanders a potentially interesting premise.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

A watchable haunt from the 'hood for this Halloween.

Fine trash entertainment.

A garish, grotesque slab of silliness drowned in bloody visual effects overkill with an end result that is more horrible than horrific.
Top Critic

Dickerson stays true to the tradition in the film's last third, which turns seriously stupid, and finally outright comic.
