Movie Review: Snoop Dogg's Hood of Horror

Snoop Dogg's Hood of Horror a.k.a Hood of Horror 
Snoopadelic Films Inc., Social Capital, BloodWorks, USA, 2006. 
Gangsta Devon (Snoop Dogg) accidentally shoots his little sister. While pursuing a rival gang he bites off more than can chew. In exchange for her sister's life he signs a contract with demon Liore (voiced by Hawthorne James). He is now a Hound of Hell and he can decide who will go to hell. Devon the Crib Keeper tells three stories.

Posie's (Daniella Alonso) parents died violently. She spray paints tags and annoys the gangs. One day she meets Hound of Hell Derelict (Danny Trejo). Derelict gives her the powerful tattoo. She can now kill enemies by painting over their names. Soon gangstas start getting killed in freak accidents. Pastor Charlie (Billy Dee Williams) has to tell the sad news to their relatives.

Posie goes too far and continues painting her own tags after eliminating the competitors. Derelict removes her gift with gory results.

This story has some bizarre ways to die.

The Scumlord
Two obnoxious racist rednecks Tex Jr. (Anson Mount) and Tiffany (Brande Roderick) are given inheritance on the condition that they must live together with black Vietnam veterans. Roscoe (Ernie Hudson), Jackson (Richard Gant), Stevens (Tucker Smallwood) and Vance (L. Kenneth Richardson) were Tex Sr.'s (Chuck Hicks) friends. Tex Jr. and Tiffany start exploiting the veterans and their nurse Wanda (Sydney Tamiia Poitier). When the pair murders Wanda the veterans decide to fight.

This is the most disgusting of the three stories.

Rapsody Askew
Rapper named SOD (Pooch Hall) starts making music with Quon (Aries Spears). SOD has a terrible ego but Quon always stays as his loyal friend. SOD's fame rises fast but Quon dies in liquor store shootout. However Sod arranged Quon's murder so he would get sympathy and become famous. Evil has to pay.

This is the most closest to the "Tales from the Crypt" stories.

There are some anime-sequences by Madhouse-studios. This is quite bad ghetto-version of "Tales from the Crypt." Personally I haven't ever been a big fan of horror anthology movies as they tend to mix mediocre stories with some interesting stories that are too short to fully develop their potential. The opening anime is quite cool, but far from Madhouse-studios' best efforts. The first story is a disappointment with lackluster conclusion, the second is crap and the third is tolerable. There are some  moral lessons in the stories but mostly they are just used to introduce gory scenes. Rapper Method Man and basketball player Lamar Odom appear as themselves and "Seinfeld's" Jason Alexander appears as record producer. Snoop is quite fun as the Crib Keeper with some amusingly random comments. He also sings a horror rap song in the end. Some well-known names in the cast do not make it good.

What a waste...of beer.

  1. Kesken jäi meikältä tämän vahtaaminen, kun oli niin julmetun surkea tuotos. Lisäksi hankkiuduin siitä sen jälkeen nopeasti eroon, viemällä sen vaihdossa divariin. Laitoin sillä kurin vahingon kiertämään, sillä kyllä sen sieltä joku varmasti mukaansa noukkiin... Kiäh! Kiäh! Vähänks olinkin oleva nääs... :D

    1. Aina joku Snoopin tai Danny Trejon fani halpaan menee :D Kakkostarinan jälkeen meinasin itsekin jättää kesken, mutta viimeisessä tarinassa oli hieman (mutta vain hieman) yritystä kuvata räppimaailman kovia kiemuroita. Siksi arvosanaksi tuli vain huono eikä erittäin huono.
