Judging by it's tongue in cheek name, one may expect this to be a goofy horror-comedy. And while the film is certainly sprinkled with very dark humor, this couldn't be further from the truth.

“Judging by it's tongue in cheek name, one may expect this to be a goofy horror-comedy. And while the film is certainly sprinkled with very dark humor, this couldn't be further from the truth. Instead, at most times, this is a very serious film. It takes the concept of old Amicus anthologies such as "Tales From The Crypt", containing horror stories that function as morality plays, and gives it an African American twist. The segments in this film deal with issues such as police brutality, domestic abuse, institutional racism and gang violence. It's strange to observe that this film came out in 1995, but it's themes are more timely than ever in 2020.

It has maintained it's cult following for good reason, as the direction obviously takes inspiration from said Amicus films. The film i” read more

" 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 "

"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. "
