Tales From the Hood (1995)

Directed by Rusty Cundieff, Written by Rusty Cundieff and Darin Scott and Starring Clarence Williams III, David Alan Grier, Corbin Bernsen, Wings Hauser, Tom Wright, Paula Jai Parker and Roger Guenveur Smith.

Plot: Anthology in which a strange funeral director tells tales to a trio of drug dealers


Since this is an anthology there will be individual scores for each story and then an average score for the movie as a whole at the end as well as multiple pics to represent each story.

Story #1 is about crooked cops who murder and innocent man and end up paying dearly.

followed rules, good acting,soundtrack and story. In my words, “bitch ass cops got what hey deserved!” if only life imitated this art lol. The cops are different levels of evil and coward, every character feels all too real and the payoff is great!       Tara like it with a score of 64/100 and i loved it with an 89/100


Story 2 is about a young boy with a monster problem that only he can trash. Rules were obeyed, likable little dude. Some of the absolute best innovation to a kill we have ever seen, an amazing twist on the monster angle. Good acting,effects and story. Highly re-watchable with a killer ending…get it…killer….yea you get it. This was our favorite story with Tara giving it an 85/100 and me giving it a 97/100


Story 3 is about a racist politician living/working in a former plantation house where many slaves were murdered. Their souls now reside in voo doo dolls made my one old slave. Great motive, acting and character breakdown are good. Great stroy and script. Creepy with justice being done, ends well Tara really liked it with a score of 75/100 and I liked it even more with a score of 84/100


Story 4 is about a murderer who goes to a prison with a unique behavior modification therapy. Highly original, very realistic with a great story and message, like the rest of the movie the guilty get theirs in the end. Heartbreaking in places if you ask me,if you don’t feel for that little girl, you have no soul. Tara gave a 59/100 and I gave it an 86/100


We aren’t sure if everyone gets the whole message of this movie but we urge you to look at it and take it in. Tara is quoted as saying “bitches deserve to die and go to hell” lol, whole movie was good with good acting,writing,direction and a great message without being preachy and it still managed to be scary with a tie together story that was just as good as the rest of the movie (unlike many anthologies) the wraparound story by the way got an 84/100 from both of us.


Our final scores were Tara with a 73/100 and me with a 92/100, we strongly recommend this!



About DJVoorhees13

I don't believe in long winded reviews. I love Jason Voorhees. My favorite Friday is Friday 4: The Final Chapter (even though it isn’t), but I even like Friday 5: A New Beginning. I know the killer is not technically Jason, but you gotta love little Reckless and the blonde woman who keeps throwing him around. My guilty pleasures are Return of the Living Dead Parts 1 – 3. I know they’re not everyone’s favorites, but I can watch them over and over again with no reprieve. I also happen to think that Return of the Living Dead 3 characters Julie and Curt have one of the greatest love story ever told. When I’m not watching horror movies, I’m usually watching old TV shows or reading books/comics. Currently watching Star Trek: Voyager and reading anything by Dante Alighieri.
