Fear of a Black Hat 4.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.

If this movie wasn't so good, it would be criticized for patently ripping off the mocumentary 'This is Spinal Tap.' The style, story line, and even some of the punch lines are the same. Despite the cinematic plagarism, this movie finds its own way, and utilizes the 'Tap' style extraordinarily well. Very, very funny.

this is a great mock movie. i grew up around the whole cross color and beeper scene. it's all just to funny. the extras on the dvd are just great.

A scathing commentary & mockumentary in the same vein as Spinal Tap, detailing the trials & tribulations of a 1980's black rap group. It's seen through the eyes of the doctorate student recording the lifestyle of NWH (**s with Hats). References to NWA,Ice Cube,Ice-T, C&C Music Factory controversies are a hoot. Good historical references abound. Also strikes a cord about the exploitation prevalent in the music industry. The music & videos are excellent. The comedy is biting and enlightening. I have to dance when I watch it. Finally on DVD. I can hardly wait. It's a keeper.

This is not only extremely funny, but the way that it Parodies the Hip Hop of the early 90¿s is great. The most brilliant aspect of this movie is the transitions that the characters and the group take. This is a must see. Rusty Cundieff is just too brilliant to miss out on. Hope you all enjoy.
