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

Interesting characters and witty dialogue are overshadowed by predictable gore and an overblown climax.
| Original Score: 2/4

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.

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

No one here escapes offensive, negative stereotyping.

Before its last-reel nosedive into bullpucky about a parallel world of the dead..."Bones" is gutsy, stylish and inventive.

Spends so much time trying to impress us with its roaming camera and wispy, digitalized specters that it forgets to be even a teensy bit scary.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

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

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

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

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

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

Slow to start, this Snoop Dogg vehicle gets revved up as soon as it gets gross, funny and stupid. Actually, it's pretty stupid from the start.

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

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

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.

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

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.
