Synopsis
Hip-hop superstar Snoop Dogg takes horror fans on a ride through the scary underside of life in the 'hood in this horror anthology. The self-described "gatekeeper of the after-party" (Snoop Dogg) introduces three stories of life in a ghetto neighborhood in which the unscrupulous get what's coming to them. Posie (Daniella Alonso) is a nice girl who turns mean when a gang of thugs murder her mother. Posie swears revenge against the gangsters, but isn't sure what to do until she encounters a member of the undead (Danny Trejo) who gives her some lessons in bloodthirsty behavior. Next, Tex Woods Jr. (Anson Mount) is a ugly-spirited Southerner who claims ownership of a house belonging to his father after the old man dies at Tex's hands. Tex and his wife, Tiffany (Brande Roderick), waste no time in evicting a handful of impoverished war veterans who were friendly with Tex's dad, but he pushes them too far and Roscoe (Ernie Hudson) leads the former soldiers in a shocking act of revenge. And finally, a rapper who has betrayed most of his friends on the way up gets his just deserts on the way down. Snoop Dogg's Hood of Horror also features Billy Dee Williams, Method Man, Jason Alexander, Lin Shaye, and Aries Spears. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Shockingly *Not* Bad. by EmpressStephanie April 8, 2008 - 12:55 PM PDT

If you like kitschy horror vignettes, like Tales from the Crypt and you like kitschy hip hop culture, like Don't Be A Menace to Society While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood - this is for you. It's not meant to be taken seriously and actually my roommates made fun of me for trying to analyze it as anything other than a film meant for a few laughs. It begins with an animated sequence where Snoop Dogg pulls a pseudo-Faust and trades his life for the life of his little sister. He then becomes the ghetto equivalent of shinigami. He basically narrates 3 interesting stories that take place in the, uh, hood. The stories have a weird and skewed moral compass - which makes them semi-unpredictable, well, the deaths are pretty unpredictable:

One person gets killed by falling on his Forty, then beer sprays everywhere. If that's not reason enough to see this, I don't know what is.

The Annual Horror Movie Festival by After Dark Films. This list is mostly for reference for horror fans to find all these movies in one place. Some of these movies are excellent but some of them are complete garbage. I'll update this list as I watch.
