Rating: 1/4 -- Both fails to be the witty satire that it was promoted as being and the serious scarefest it actually aspires to be. Full Review

The stories do get better as they go along, though all of them will seem overly familiar to fans of the genre. Full Review

Rating: 1.5/4 -- [This] predictably trite Tales isn't very scary.

...A smart and sassy horror anthology that mixes blunt shocks and sharp satire....Fearsome and ferociously funny as well as socially conscious...

Rating: 1/5 -- E.C. Comics-style horror films are the LAST place one should attempt serious social commentary.

...Scabrously funny....A powerhouse of a movie, TALES FROM THE HOOD is operatic, great-looking, fast-moving, action-filled, tough-minded yet often hilarious and bursting with imagination...

If Get Out is about the way racism now hides behind America's grinning, faux-liberal facade, Tales is about how poverty and ignorance are causing young black men and women to rage war against themselves. Full Review

Product Description:

When three homeboys go to a funeral parlor to get some drugs stashed in their late friend's coffin, the creepy mortician has some frightful lessons in store for them.

Plot Synopsis:

This politically tinged anthology puts a new spin on tales of the strange and the supernatural.
While three hoods sit around a mortuary waiting for their supplier to arrive with dope, the owner helps them pass the time by telling stories about the very weird things he's witnessed. In one, a black rookie cop tries but fails to prevent some crooked policemen from beating an African-American community leader to death... but the victim finds a way to get his revenge. The second is a heart-wrenching drama about domestic violence that only magic can end, and the third story is a wickedly funny parody of racist Southern politicians, featuring a candidate who resembles several real public figures. Finally, in the last episode, a violent black gang members finds himself imprisoned with a white supremacist killer -- and the two surprisingly find a lot in common...
