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.

Not entirely sure these tales were worth telling...
12 October 2018 | by OccuIt_DetectiveSee all my reviews

In 1995, Rusty Cundieff graced us horror fans with an interesting anthology film that was horrifying, fun, and provided very outspoken social commentary. Twenty years later, he announced a sequel was going to be made. I was overwhelmed with excitement, and followed the production as I awaited to hear what that devil Simms had to offer us in a second trip to 'The Hood.'

Unfortunately, my eagerness to go on this campy adventure came to a screeching halt during the first story, and never quite resumed. While the original was by no means a masterpiece, this one felt as if it was made of stories that should have been rejected as duds from the original. While anthology films should have a dose of humor to them, it should be balanced with horror, and there's none of that here. Just poorly attempted humor that fails to be humorous, in favor of being over the top zany.

Keith David does a fine job taking over the roll of Simms, originally played by Clarence Williams, who wisely chose not to return for the sequel. That's about as much praise as I can award this follow-up. It both looked and felt less like the work of Rusty Cundieff and more along the lines of a cheap and lost sequel of one of the Wayans brothers "Scary Movie" series. I'd vote to skip this one, if not for checking it out purely out of morbid curiosity. But even the very worst and cheesy Tales from the Crypt episodes were more enjoyable than anything this movie had to offer, and that's pretty disappointing.
