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.

    Great Underrated Horror

    This film is scary, provocative, and campy at the same time.To me a good quality in a horror film ,is when you can't resist looking at all the gruesome details .'Tales..' certainly has that quality.
