I'd See it Again
4 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

Bottom line: This movie is fun as hell to watch. I don't understand people who expect every movie to be an Oscar performance. This is Snoop Dogg people. I saw this movie at Horror fest with my girlfriend and we laughed our asses off. Entertainment is entertainment, and this was an undeniable good time... And yes, I would see it again

This Movie reminded me of Tales from the Hood and Creep Show. It had that similar three part layout with the different tales.

Remember the Crypt Keeper on TFTC back in the day? When he'd yell "Tales from the Crypt..." in that creepy screetchy voice. I always thought that was a good intro, and I liked how they kind of morphed snoop into a crypt keeper.

BTW - If you haven't seen or heard of the film The Tennants where Snoop plays a writer opposite Dylan McDermott, I highly recommend it. Snoop was amazing in it, and Dylan McDermott was unreal as a Jewish writer hell bent on finishing his script. I found it touching, but it lagged a little in the middle... anyway that's neither here nor there... back to Hood of horror...

I also like the Anime intro in this movie. It was intense and visually stimulating. It definitely wasn't funny, but it trying to be, it was actually serious, and I thought it stood up on its own dramatically (as opposed to the rest of the movie which was really just a romp.) I'd actually like to see the comic book version of that sequence if anyone knows were to find it, or if they know any other work by that artist. I'm not really into Anime, but I like the hip hop angle and it moved well.

If I do have any gripe about this film it's that I think there should have been more gore in the third segment. I liked the music and the flow in the third segment, but it was a little tame on the blood and guts, which I'm not trying to abdicate, but I think think it might have worked out better with a bit more gore in that one. It was more dramatic and touching, but after the first two, I really wanted more crazy scenes with outrageous random horror. But it was still cool, and that actor Aries Spiers who does the JZ rapper impersinations on youtube was actually a descent as an actor in it, which I was surprised about.

Bottom line is movie was good. I can't stand everyone trying to evaluate movies in the same way. Some movies are for fun and entertainment and some are for serious artistic evaluation. This movie was a 10 on the fun scale, which is all it was supposed to be (unless I'm wrong and they were actually trying to win some festival awards), so that being said, me and my girl give it two thumbs up.
