    Tales From the Hood (1995)



    This is another guilty pleasure movie that I decided to revisit recently. I used to like it growing up and hadn't seen it in years. The film came out in the mid-90's when Hollywood was saturated with these "hood dramas" like Menace 2 Society and Boyz n the Hood, so it was perfect timing for a hood-horror anthology. Surprisingly, while the effects are clearly outdated, I still dug the stories and the wraparound is way better than most wraps we get today. Out of the 4 stories, I only found the last to be the weakest, while the rest are pretty entertaining.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0114609/



    As far as horror anthologies go, it's not necessarily a good movie, but it's definitely not bad either and much better than most recent attempts. If I were to review it I'd give it a 6/10

    Anyone else sorta find this a bit of a guilty pleasure?

    I saw it again back in January or so and it lost a lot of it's luster from when I saw it back in its time. I remember liking it but I simply could not get into it recently. I own the VHS of this as well, somewhere tucked away in my attic.

    I've always enjoyed it. KKK Comeuppance is one of my favorite tales from any horror anthology.
