Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90โ€™s (1886 movies items)

" Tales from the Hood is a 1995 American horror comedy anthology film directed by Rusty Cundieff and executive-produced by Spike Lee. The film presents four short urban-themed horror stories based on problem concepts that affect the African-American community in the order of police corruption, domestic abuse, racism, and gang violence, all presented within a frame story of three drug dealers buying some "found" drugs from an eccentric and story-prone funeral director. The film did decently wi"

Summer 2021 Viewings (25 movies items)

"Format: Blu-Ray Viewing: 1st Thoughts: Tales from the Hood is a mildly entertaining horror anthology that's kind of a Hood movie, Creepshow hybrid. I was actually surprised that I never saw it when it first came out in the mid-90s. After seeing it for the first time I have to say that it was interesting to see all the social commentary elements, but overall it was pretty bad and even laughable at times. It did have its moments, Clarence Williams III as the maniacal storyteller, David Alan Grier "

Movies I Watched in February 2021 (49 movies items)

" Date: 2/16/2021 Viewed: Blu-Ray (Scream Factory) Re-Watch Note: This is my first time watching this movie in the last 25 years and it holds up very well. Tales from the Hood is an excellent horror movie that is timeless in my opinion. The movie does a wonderful job of covering very relevant topics such as child abuse, police brutality, racism, and Black-on-Black crime. I love how this movie is like a black spin on Tales from the Crypt by telling five great stories. The most memorable story t"

Movies the giraffe watched in 2020: February (26 movies items)

"First viewing - Feb. 1st Since February is also Black History Month, I decided to kick off the month with a pair of Black Horror movies starting with Tales from the Hood. As the title suggests it's an anthology film, in this case one tied together by a kooky old funeral director telling stories to a trio of young men searching his home for a score he claims to have found. I thought it did a good job of sustaining the same tone throughout the entire thing, which I appreciated. The point of view "

Great Black (African American) Horror Movies (11 movies items)

"A tongue-in-cheek ode to old school EC comics' morality tales that is cleverly modernized by attacking social issues concerning black communities. The macabre mirth of the source material that inspired it is retained despite the serious issues being tackled. The result is that the film is both replete with messages that open the eyes of those that don't have first hand experience and affect those that do while simultaneously providing a nostalgic horror fix for those who fondly remember the twis"

"Tales from the Crypt put through a Afro-American grinder but keeping all the grue and dark humor intact. Morality tales with a social statement and a tongue planted firmly in cheek. "
