Synopsis

Welcome to the 'hood of horrors!

It's a place where your worst fears can come to life. A place where it's hard to tell nightmares from reality. A place where you will discover Tales From The Hood.

Stack, Ball and Bulldog arrive at a local funeral parlor to retrieve a lost drug stash held by the mortician Mr. Simms (Clarence Williams III). But Mr. Simms has plans for the boys. He leads them on a tour of his establishment, introducing them to his corpses. Even the dead have tales to tell and Mr. Simms is willing to tell them all. And you better listen – because when you're in the 'hood, even everyday life can lead to extraordinary terror.

Why We Love It

“…both longtime fans and newcomers alike should find Shout Factory's Blu-ray a worthwhile addition to their collections. Solid video and audio are complimented by a healthy allotment of generally good bonus content. Recommended.” – Martin Liebman, Blu-ray.com

Tales from the Hood adds to the laundry list of fond moviegoing experiences from my youth, finally hitting Blu-ray, and it's just as corny and ridiculously entertaining as I remember. From writer/director Rusty Cundieff and producer Spike Lee, the horror anthology highlighting social issues concerning urban areas amazingly remains relevant and timely. The Blu-ray moves into the neighborhood with a great audio and video presentation that improves dramatically over previous releases. With a decently satisfying set of supplements, the overall package makes a great addition to the cult library.” – M. Enois Duarte, High-Def Digest

“It will be hard to top Scream Factory’s Blu-ray of Tales from the Hood as one of the most exciting horror home video releases of the year, if only because it’s a movie that is long overdue for a proper special edition and in need of a wider audience. It still stands out today as one of the best horror offerings of the 1990s, as it perfectly represents what was happening during the decade while remaining timelessly enjoyable—a movie both totally of its time and totally out of time.” – Patrick Bromley, Daily Dead

“Scream Factory has once again delivered the goods. The film looks and sounds amazing, and maybe I was so wrapped up in the stories that I didn't notice any imperfections... or perhaps there actually aren't any. It was interesting to see those involved with the film speak about it in the new featurette, as well as the vintage one. This release is highly recommended.” – Michele Galgana, Screen Anarchy

Tales From The Hood holds up surprisingly well as a really effective blend of horror and dark comedy. The script is smart, the concepts are unique and the performances are strong across the board. Shout! Factory has done a nice job bringing this one to Blu-ray, presenting the movie in great shape and with some solid extra features as well. Highly recommended.” – Ian Jane, DVD Talk
