Product Description

Bones (DVD)

Ignoring the warnings of a local clairvoyant, young, urban entrepreneurs planning to open a nightclub in a decrepit building on the wrong side of the tracks run afoul of the ghost of Jimmy Bones, who has returned more than 20 years after his death to seek revenge against those who killed him and to clean up his old neighborhood.

Sleepy-eyed hip-hop luminary Snoop Dogg stars in Bones, an energetic horror film about a hustler who returns from the dead. Jimmy Bones used to rule his street, but now his body lies in the basement of a gothic abandoned house. When a troupe of young DJs and promoters decide to turn the house into a nightclub, dark forces are, unsurprisingly, unleashed. Bones has a cutting sense of humor, and Ernest Dickerson's direction snaps, crackles, and pops. It's not exactly subtle--the opening scene launches into gore and special effects--but there is some evocative imagery, particularly a large black hellhound that the club kids foolishly adopt as a pet. Snoop casts an effectively spectral aura, and Pam Grier, as the hustler's psychically gifted former girlfriend, has her usual presence and energy. All in all, a dynamic and enjoyable horror flick. --Bret Fetzer

Format: VHS Tape
Bones is an african-american horror flick that can stand with any of the all white cast horrors. Bones stars Snoop Dogg, Pam Grier, Khalil Cain and Clifton Powell.
Bones is a tale of betrayal, murder and revenge. It is also a story within a story. The past and present day scenes are mixed together nicely. If the viewer needs a potty break or snack, my advice is to pause the tape...you don't want to miss a single detail.
In 1979, Jimmy Bones (Snoop Dogg) was a well respected hoodlum for lack of a better title, who loved and protected his black community. Other street hustlers wanted to bring crack into the hood and Jimmy Bones did not approve. He is brutally murdered in front of his woman (Pam Grier), body guard and childhood buddy.
Present day has some young buppies from the suburbs purchasing property in the ghetto/hood so that they can open a club as a business venture. They want to show themselves approved to their successful father. After purchasing the run down brownstone that belonged to Jimmy Bones, the terror is unleashed! Prepare yourself for thrills, chills, terror, bloody murder scenes and lots of screams with a bit of humor added in the most unlikely spots. As the story merges 1979 and present day (twenty plus years later) you will know that this should be a classic and wonder why it did not get as much recognition as it should have at the box office.
For those old school viewers...the writer's inspiration must have been the 1970s horror flick J.D.'s Revenge.

BONES stars rap artist Snoop Doggy Dogg as a gangster from the 1970's who comes back from the dead to punish the people who betrayed him and who are responsible for his death. The cast includes sexy actress Bianca Lawson and Pam Grier, the special effects in the film are above average, and the script has many plotlines running through it. I saw this movie on Halloween night and it was much better than I expected. BONES is a hip, edgy thriller that has horror, suspense, drama, and even a little bit of romance. Snoop Dogg pulls it off as a good guy gone bad when he comes back from the dead!

This is a very cool Nightmare On Elm Street-esque horror flick that does everything right. Great plot, great acting, Pam Grier, and awesome special effects are just some of the things this movie has going for it. I was on the edge of my seat most of the time, just waiting to see what disturbing imagery was about to be thrown at me next. If you are a fan of old-school Wes Craven, or just the horror genre in general, check this movie out. It's very good. The DVD is PACKED with extra features too...it's very worth it!

Doesn't anyone get the joke? This movie is funny and scary at the same time. I must say that I somewhat enjoyed the film. I bought it so that I can watch it every Halloween.
A pimp (Snoop Dogg) is murdered and comes back a few decades later to kill the people who wronged him, oh, and their children too. This is like Freddy Kruger in the hood. The black Elm Street.
The film's special effects are pretty believable and the directing was pretty good. Snoop is wonderful as the title role and he just seems as if he's having so much fun with the role. For fans of the horror genre I suggest you check this out. It's better than you think it will be.

Putting Snoop Dogg in a horror film is a bold move. Making that horror film a throwback to Italian horror and Blaxploitation movies is a really bold move. Along the way, Bones sneaks in commentary about the African-American struggle to succeed while remaining true to one's roots. It's not your average horror flick by any measure.

Dogg plays Jimmy Bones, a drug dealer who is a romantic ideal - he doesn't dabble in anything as denigrating as selling lottery tickets, he refuses to work with The Man (embodied by Michael T. Weiss as Lupovich, an over-the-top corrupt cop), and he absolutely refuses to deal crack cocaine. What Bones doesn't realize is that there's no room in the dog-eat-dog world (get it? Snoop Dogg is in this film!) for a drug dealer with standards. When he turns down rival drug dealer Eddie Mack's (Ricky Harris) offer, Bones is betrayed by lieutenant Jeremiah Peet (Clifton Powell), girlfriend Pearl (Pam Grier), and bodyguard Shotgun (Ron Selmour) all who literally stab him in the back - and in the front - at Lupovich's gunpoint. Buried in the church he called home, Bones swears revenge.

Flash forward to the present day. Unbeknownst to Jeremiah, his rebellious progeny Patrick (Khalil Kain), Bill (Merwin Mondesir) and Tia (Katharine Isabelle) are planning to start a club in the same abandoned church. It's interesting in that Patrick and Bill are dark-skinned and Tia is white - a blend that's a result of Jeremiah's mixed marriage. The movie makes no mention of this, but it lurks in the background of a discussion between the three middle-class kids who argue with their father that crack cocaine was concocted by The Man. Director Ernest Dickerson mythologizes this conflict in Bones' refusal to play along with Mack.

... If you like horror films (with gore and gross out moments)and you're a Snoop Dogg fan, then you'll probably enjoy Bones. Since, I am both these things, I did enjoy it. I don't think the plot was thin, but I think some things could have been clarified. The ending kind of lost me. ... I thought it was cool how humor was injected into the story. C'mon with all the cliches doing a haunted house story invites, how can you possibly take yourself too seriously? All in all, I really got a kick out of it. It was way better than a Vampire in Brooklyn (Man, I'm still crying about that one.), so I don't think it's the worst horror film I ever spent money on, not by a long shot.
