Storyline

As William, a lumbering man in his 50s, and Brooklyn, a six-year-old child, try to outrun an unseen evil, Brooklyn decides to tell William four moralistic but deeply horrific stories to distract herself from the impending danger. The first story deals with a greedy real estate agent, David, who burns down an apartment to drive its last remaining tenants, The Bradford Family, out of their home. The second story concerns some frat boys who throw a white supremacist party, and the American Terrorist, Psycho Johnny, who puts a violent end to the party. The third story revolves around a struggling singer, Chela, and her rich employer, Miss Marie Bastille, who Chela wants to kill and use her money to further her career. The fourth story is about a petty thief who ends up killing one of his victims and becomes cursed in the aftermath of his sin. Written by lovejam

An adequate horror anthology...
3 November 2020 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Sure, I have watched the first "Tales from the Hood" back in the day, but I can't really claim to remember it fondly. And I haven't watched the second part. But I was given the chance to sit down and watch the third installment in the series here late in 2020, so of course I did so.

The first tales in "Tales from the Hood 3" was pretty straight forward, albeit rather generic and predictable. Sure, it was watchable, but it was hardly an outstanding tale in any aspect. It was nicely acted though.

Which leads us to the second tale. Now, as a white man, I could be tempted to feel offended by the way the character was portrayed. But of course I am not, because it is a mere movie meant for entertainment, and it was an over-the-top generalization of a prejudice redneck. It was actually enjoyable, although bordering on being tacky and distasteful. But hey, it was avantgarde and I definitely enjoyed that the director of this segment dared to go to that level and length.

The third segment was actually a bit bland and swaying close to being downright boring. It was nicely acted and the concept idea was good enough, but it just wasn't an original tale.

And the fourth tale was definitely the most interesting of the segments for me. It was nicely written and mixed comedy elements into the mixture in a nice manner. The storyline told in this segment was good and enjoyable. Sure, it was predictable, but it was entertaining nonetheless.

As for the narrative storyline that ties all the segments together, well that was also quite good, especially as it had Tony Todd in it. It didn't really make all that much sense, as there was a hint of supernatural elements to it.

I will say that they definitely had put together a good ensemble of actors and actresses for portraying the characters throughout the various segments, and the performers were putting on good jobs. And this, in turn, definitely helped to carry the overall enjoyment of the horror anthology.

For a horror anthology, then "Tales from the Hood 3" was adequately entertaining. It had some interesting enough segments to it, which made up for the less than interesting segments. So, I would say that it is actually worth watching.

My rating of "Tales from the Hood 3" lands on a six out of ten stars.
