Scary or Die horror movie
Propelled by the likes of Trick 'r Treat and the V/H/S and ABCs of Death series, horror anthology movies made a comeback in the early 21st century -- with varying results. One of the more under-the-radar efforts was Scary or Die, a low-budget but high-quality portmanteau that takes a...
Necronomicon: Book of the Dead horror movie poster
The third and final tale in this gory H.P. Lovecraft-inspired horror anthology is intriguing in that it revolves around an interracial couple in Sarah (Signy Coleman) and Paul (the fun-to-say Obba Babatunde). They're partners on the Philadelphia police force, and apparently Paul's been slipping Sarah his nightstick, because she...
Nite Tales horror movie
Nite Tales represents the continued evolution of modern black horror movies in the 21st century...at least, production value-wise. The content itself is pretty much crap. Or couldn't you tell by the tagline "hosted by Flavor Flav"? With his energetic, larger-than-live personality, Flav seems suited to do...something, but horror movie host...
The Offspring From a Whisper to a Sceam horror movie poster
While the standard cinematic mystical darkie is a benevolent being who uses his or her powers to aid a Caucasian in need (CIN) -- see The Legend of Bagger Vance, The Family Man, The Green Mile, The Stand, The Shining, etc. -- The Offspring paints quite a different picture....
Snoop Dogg's Hood of Horror movie
Because the ho and bitch quotient on this website has been lacking recently...it's Snoop Dogg's Hood of Horror! This is Snoop's third foray into horror (not counting Soul Plane), and it might actually be his best, ranking somewhere in the neighbor"hood" of Bones in overall quality. Despite a campy poster,...
Fear Itself horror TV show
Fear Itself was a poor man's Masters of Horror, with all of the talent but little of the bite of that Showtime program. And yet, it was still refreshing to see a weekly dose of horror on network television, so I was bummed when NBC pulled it after only...
Street Tales of Terror horror movie poster
This urban horror anthology doesn't open very promisingly, with characters with names like J-Dog delivering lines like, "Nigga, I know that you did not just call my bitch a bitch!" Luckily, the "tales" themselves aren't quite so stereotypically chicken-headed. Unluckily, they're still not all that good. The stories come...
Tales from the Quadead Zone horror movie
Ah, Chester Novell Turner. Not since John Wayne Gacy have three words instilled such terror in the heart of Man. Contrary to popular belief, the person who brought you Black Devil Doll From Hell was not immediately thrown into a padded cell with no ventilation. Instead, he remained free...
Tales from the Hood horror movie poster
Of all the all-black horror movies to receive a theatrical release since the Blaxploitation era (let's say, four), Tales from the Hood is probably the best. Smarter than Bones, with a grander scale than Def by Temptation, and well, it's not Vampire in Brooklyn, TFTH follows the standard Tales from the Crypt...
Trilogy of Terror horror movie DVD
This relatively tame made-for-TV anthology has achieved cult status amongst even the most hardcore horror fans for three simple words: Zuni...fetish...doll. The little African bugger (I say African because although the Zuni are a Native American tribe, the doll was confirmed in the sequel to be African.) has become...
