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."

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Robert Firsching
This entertaining horror anthology is set in the scariest places in America: its inner-city ganglands. The four stories here are, of course, of varying quality: "Rogue Cop Revelation" and "KKK Comeuppance" are both preachy and average, while "Boys Do Get Bruised" is a well-done tale of magical revenge similar to the "Sweets to the Sweet" segment of The House That Dripped Blood. The best story is "Hard Core Convert," in which a tough-talking "gangsta" (Lamont Bentley) is strapped to a table by a sinister doctor (Rosalind Cash) and shown hellish visions of the consequences of his lifestyle. Ending on a strong note with that story and a fun wraparound segment, Tales from the Hood deserves more of a look from horror fans than it got, being one of the best such anthologies of recent years.
