 Post subject: Tales From The Hood
PostPosted: Thu Feb 16, '17, 6:48 am 
Being that I've had a recent growing fascination with horror films, and that it is Black History Month, I just finished watching this film, and this may be one of the greatest horror flicks I ever saw in my life! It was produced by Darin Scott, who had previously worked on Menace II Society, and it has Spike Lee as executive producer. It is a horror anthology film consisting of four segments with the framework of a trio of gangbangers trying to get some drugs off a mortician (played by Clarence Williams III) who tells the gangbangers who presents the stories of the four segments to the three. It also has a bit of social commentary dealing with racism that is more relevant today than back when this film came out. I don't want to go into full detail so I don't accidentally spoil it. The first segment is about a civil rights activist who was senselessly murdered by a group of racist cops that returns as a zombie or something and gets revenge on them. The second is about a young boy who's school teacher senses all is not well with him and tries to get the answers. The third and my personal favorite of the segments is about a racist senator who is a former KKK member who is running for governor who's house is haunted from being on a former slave plantation from the civil war era. The fourth and final segment is about a merciless cold blooded killer who is sent to prison after killing a man he has been after for a while and has to undergo a form of psychological rehabilitation. If you are a horror fan and also a fan of movies like Do The Right Thing, Boyz n the Hood or Menace II Society, then you may really get a kick out of this one.

Interesting topic MrKite! I can't remember if I have seen this film before or not. It certainly sounds creepy, and worth watching. I have seen Clarence Williams III from the "Mod Squad" tv show and other shows and he is an excellent actor in any role he takes on. Gonna put this on my list of things to watch. It sounds like a great film to watch at Halloween, or any time really.
