Black comedy
3 October 2004 | by (IN) – See all my reviews

Hilarious black comedy horror movie... by "black comedy", I mean that every character is black. Also, the picture quality is horrible, so you'll be staring at a lot of black. And, also, most people would rather be staring at grim black death than ever watch this movie; it's quite bad. Starting with a stylistic opening sequence of a fun little murder, it quickly becomes a child abuse saga and then turns into an urban party. Sort of a Boys N Da Hood for Nightmare on Elm Street fans or something.

I can kind of see some promise in the direction (as one reviewer already mentioned, the drunk-guy 3D puke scene is amazing), but it's all so, so, SO cliché and stereotypically stupid. It's probably one of the dumber horror movies ever, but you gotta dig that 'Tales from the Hood' poster in the video store. I'm sure that they were trying to make a film here that could rival that movie, and that's kind of like a cat turd wishing it were dog crap or something. Avoid this at all costs; it's not even funny how bad it is.
