the gore and comedy we've come to expect from the series. It did look like the cheapest of the series to me and some of the jokes fall flat but overall the gore and goofyness wins.

Director: Tyler MacIntyre | Stars: Brianna Hildebrand, Alexandra Shipp, Jack Quaid, Kevin Durand

Votes: 7,183 | Gross: $0.06M

maybe a little too self indulgent (hypocritcal?) i kind of found the banter between the two leads to become tiresome. Maybe destined to be a cult classic for young women. The story was still fun and interesting.

very well made and i enjoyed it but after thinking about it it there were quite a few plot holes. I liked how much screen time the monsters got and the movie built a lot of tension.

nicholas cage is entertaining and the movie explores some dark areas of the movies concept but it doesn't really go as far as a movie like this should and ends up not being overly memorable.

R | 84 min | Action, Adventure

A drug lord's lieutenant struggles to protect his crime family and his own honor after a shootout.

Director: Damon Dash | Stars: Jay Black, Blackface, Book Boards, Danny Worthy Boards

Votes: 227

your basic turf war/rise to power urban gangster story. The naration kind of makes it feel like "hustlin for dummys" but the movie is still alright if you're into low budget street gang movies like killa season and state property.

TV-MA | 95 min | Crime, Drama

6.9
