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.

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.

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.

Bones is a ghetto fabulous blaxploitation freak show that will surely swish over people's heads.

In exalting the very worst of humanity, Bones displays a special glee and an unusual density of scary imagery.

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.
