Playing the "Crib Keeper" in this urban takeoff on Tales From the Crypt, Snoop Dogg somehow manages to project an aura of detached suavity even under these cheesy circumstances.
Every story is more trite and less interesting than the one before it, with Snoop taunting the viewer at every turn.
The lessons offered are pretty good -- misuse of power, ego and friendship among them. But the stories are very predictable, and a bit too bloody, and the acting is uneven.
Sloppily directed, often amateurishly acted and fixated on booty and blood, Snoop Dogg's Hood of Horror is nevertheless gleefully disgusting.
There's a certain cartoony fun to these simple morality stories, but mostly they serve as an excuse for laughably lame gore.
Low-budget, tasteless and ridiculous but also fun, in an Old School grindhouse way, as gangsta graffiti artists, not-keeping-it-real rappers and evil rednecks receive their supposedly just desserts (would you believe a 40-ounce through the skull?).
A predictable, cheesy attempt at "splatstick" that doesn't quite work.
Take Hood of Horrors for what it is. Some will enjoy any excuse for gratuitous violence. It certainly doesn't take itself seriously. But most fans can find plenty of better horror movies to satisfy the same need.
Hood of Horror gets dangerously close to minstrel show mentality that Spike Lee has always warned us about.
Oh, that Snoop. Apparantly Bones never scared him away from the genre and he now returns with this anthology film. In it's favour, it is entertaining in a cheesy way and quite gory, but the stories...oh dear. They remind me of an anthology novel I wrote when maybe 10 (well I considered it a novel) called Curse of the Werewolf. Looking back on it, they were gory as hell, but written by a ten year old idjit. Still it was just a little worse written than this.
So this film is in the vein of Tales from the Crypt and those film that are a trio of horror stories, in this one, Snoop is the story teller. I gotta say, this movie starts off cool. The animated parts are really slick and stylistically done, and the two first stories are pretty good. Great appearances by Danny Trejo and Ernie Hudson, it's really hard not to like them in something, it also has "Jungle Julia", from DEATH PROOF in it, but the final story is stupid as hell, despite the appearance of Diamond Dallas Page, who actually does and terrible job, and Snoop doing and rap song to sume up what you just saw, it leaves a really bad taste in your mouth and makes you feel like this movie was a just a silly piece of shit. So if you go to watch this movie, turn it off after the second story, you'll enjoy it a hell of a lot more and it will only take under an hour of your time.
Like 'Creepshow', only with the n-word.
