Tales from the Hood
Boyz N the Hood meets Tales from the Crypt in this alternately horrific, funny, and socially conscious anthology film. The four grim vignettes are framed by the tale of three street hoods who break into Mr. Simm's inner-city funeral home to find a stash of drugs. The mortician puts them off, by telling them a few eerie stories about his "patrons." ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[This] predictably trite Tales isn't very scary."
‑ , USA Today
"Both fails to be the witty satire that it was promoted as being and the serious scarefest it actually aspires to be."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Decent concept. Poor execution."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"E.C. Comics-style horror films are the LAST place one should attempt serious social commentary."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"As uneven as anthology films often are, but occasionally good, goofy fun."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"The stories do get better as they go along, though all of them will seem overly familiar to fans of the genre."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
