Horror is back in the hood! The sequel to the ground-breaking original film Tales From the Hood reunites Executive Producer Spike Lee (Honorary Academy Award® winner) and Writers/Directors/Producers Rusty Cundieff and Darin Scott for an all-new gripping, horrifying and oftentimes devilishly comical anthology. Keith David stars as a contemporary Mr. Simms to tell bloodcurdling stories about lust, greed, pride and politics through tales with demonic dolls, possessed psychics, vengeful vixens and historical ghosts. Mr. Simms's haunting stories will make you laugh...while you scream.

Did You Know?


Like the first movie, Tales from the Hood (1995), there is a mix of stories involving different themes such as Redemption, Forgiveness, Sexism, Racism and Betrayal. Both movies have a bizarre storyteller; in the sequel, it is Keith David. Who constantly mentions something about, "the shit." Just like the first movie, towards the end, someone goes to Hell.

User Reviews

Can't believe the same creative team made this one
1 November 2018 | by udar55See all my reviews

OUCH! I knew ahead of time this would be a lower budget, but had no idea it would be this bad. If I didn't know Rusty Cundieff and Darin Scott returned, I would swear there is no way this could have been made by the same people who made the first film. The first film deftly blended horror stories with social commentary. This one does not. I was excited to see Keith David as the new storyteller, but they just make him do a poor impression of Clarence Williams III, even going so far as to repeat his "the sh*t?" routine. The final story ("The Sacrifice") had promise, but is so unsubtle. When this was announced, I hoped it was a series the could continue every year. After having seen it, I wish they didn't make it.
