Now here's a shock, and for some it might even be a spoiler: As intentionally cheap and tawdry as this film is, it's a good movie overall, and one of its three chapters is flat-out great.
Set up as a "Tales from the Crypt"-style anthology, the movie's prevailing moral theme (and, yes, there is a prevailing moral theme to SNOOP DOGG'S HOOD OF HORROR) is that a person's actions on Earth, in the 'hood, can effect their existence in the afterlife.
The first of the episodes is about a female grafitti artist who takes revenge on some neighborhood roughs through supernatural means. Daniella Alonso shines in the leading role. She has confidence and screen presence, and delivers her lines with the clarity of a true pro. However, the segment suffers from shoddy special effects, and could confirm viewers' suspicion that this is a direct-to-video quality release. Still, when one thug impales his own head on a 40-oz. bottle, it's pretty hilarious to hear Alonso intone, "What a waste...of beer."
The second chapter, titled "The Scumlord," is a first-rate social satire with performances that actually do deserve the Oscar consideration they will never get.
The story involves Tex Jr., the spoiled son of a real estate tycoon who inherits (through patricide) his father's property. In this role, Anson Mount is sheer comic genius, delivering polically incorrect lines that will literally make you gasp before laughing your head off.
Tex Jr. is now the landlord of a building housing a group of African-American Vietnam War veterans.Read more ›
The first feature stars a young woman who can eradicate graffiti artists simply by spray painting a red X through their street art. The highlight is a spectacularly unrealistic yet unintentionally funny beer bottle through the skull slip and fall accident. Despite her attempts to clean up the streets with her own graffiti, the outcome is completely predictable. The second feature is the best acted of the three when a group of honorable black Vietnam veterans exact revenge on a bigot. This little nightmare showcases the worst dancing scene in history featuring Anson Mount. (Note: confederate boxer shorts are never a good look.) This vignette is marred largely by the outrageous stereotypes perpetrated and the ultra-clumsy attempt to be politically relevant by bashing George W. Bush. Let's get this out of the way: the Jiffy Pop scene is wholly unwarranted and unsatisfactory. The third feature stars Jason Alexander as a rap producer (complete with gold chain...ponder....Read more ›
There are better horror anthologies out there (Trick R' Treat, Tales From The Hood), but this one wasn't as bad as people make it out to be. As of 8/5/12, this film is available on Netflix Streaming.
HoH has strong violence and gore, nudity and sex.
The film contains 3 short stories of "horror in the hood" with the first and last being better than the second story (which is not saying much.)
I just thought Snoop had better taste than this.
You expect to see killing in ANY horror flick, but the second story shows them abusing a Chihuahua NEEDLESSLY, I thought.
It didn't even fit in the storyline,and was SOOOO sickening !!!
First, the dog's owner gets killed by blowing up her stomach with cavaier which is being pumped into this woman through a vaccum cleaner, and if THIS wasn't enough, they put the dog on top of her to eat the gore of what was left of his mistress on the bed....after she exploded on it :(
THEN... we flash ahead in time, and the dog is living with it's new owners, and Snoop comes in and blows the little Chihuahua away! For no reason at all !!!
If he thought this was funny or cool in ANY way, he was SO wrong !
It totally turned me OFF on Snoop altogether.Animal abuse in any form is NOT funny. It was pretty sickening...among OTHER things in this big FLOP of a badly directed, acted and edited movie.
In short, Hood of Horror ... SUCKED.
