Murder Was the Case: The Movie (1995)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

This eighteen-minute video has Snoop Dogg being shot down by a trio of rivals but he makes a deal with the Devil to come back to life.

There's really not too much plot for this promotional film but it's kind of funny watching this film today. I was in middle school when this was released and I still remember the various controversies that were going around about the language, the violence and of course the nudity. What's funny today is that all of these elements are incredibly light and there's really nothing offensive here. As it stands, there's no doubt that this short isn't a masterpiece but at the same time it's a mildly entertaining mixture of the rap culture and horror film. Snoop was a big fan of horror movies and you can see that influence here. He's certainly entertaining and the song selections are good enough.
