The Doggfather brings us Three times Death in the Hood
9 May 2007 | by (the Doomed Megalopolis of Blasphemous Technoids) – See all my reviews

Let me tell you straight up that if you have issues with rather low-budget anthology-movies or simply can't stand Snoop Dogg, you just better stay away from HOOD OF HORROR. I personally think Snoop's always good for a laugh or two. So, I'm rating this flick solely on fun-factor, because it's pretty much light-years away from being a stellar horror-movie.

The first segment has a good-looking ghetto-gal being granted super-powers by evil voodoo-man Danny Trejo to take on her whole graffiti-spraying neighborhood. The second one has a yuppie-couple move in with some Vietnam-vets. The greedy couple has a hidden agenda of their own, and naturally the two love-birds don't get along very well with the Vietnam-vets. Third and final segment shows us that the price of fame always catches up with you, no matter how big a rap-star you are. And when you've attained wealth and stardom in a rather dubious manner, you're in for some real 'shiiiit'.

All stories have some very nasty and entertaining blood 'n' gore effects. Especially the climax of the second segment is pretty hilarious. The scene (first segment) that proofs sipping on gin & juice can cause a nasty splitting head-ache is a total hoot! Da Doggster himself is indeed worth a laugh or two (just watch out for the scene were he says "Doggy want a bone?" and then "boom!" goes the gun), but he didn't seem to have had a lot of directing guidelines. I suppose he must have thought his coolness was all it would take to play the part. His Cribkeeper character (or whatever it's called in the movie) has a nice back-ground story, told to us by a slick-looking anime-style animated wrap-around story. In addition, at the end of the movie, we get some sort of video-clip (featuring some of the cast members - including a devil-midget) of a Snoop Dogg song (apparantly especially written for the soundtrack for HOOD OF HORROR). He's just rapping it up on some fiery ghetto-set with a lot of demon-babes shaking their T&A. Pretty dumb song too, by the way, that seems to have been written and recorded in just one hour. The video-clip itself is of the same "cinematographic" quality as the rest of the movie (which means: tolerable and watchable).

Final judgement: No flunk from Da Vomitron, because this flick follows the rules of an anthology movie nicely (three segments with a nice twist at the end, which you may or may not see coming and a fun wrap-around story). The rather low-budget didn't make 'em skimp on the decent gore-effects. The don't-take-it-all-serious vibe and Da Doggster's witty nonsense made it all a bit more enjoyable too.

Now if you want to see a really good "horror in the hood" anthology movie, I full-heartedly recommend TALES FROM THE HOOD. At least Snoop Dogg's HOOD OF HORROR is a lot better than insufferable crap-fests like CUTTHROAT ALLEY and DA HIP HOP WITCH (dare I even watch HOOD OF THE LIVING DEAD? Anyone?), but it still remains just an entertaining nonsensical time-waster. A fun quickie, if you please.
