Ragdoll horror movie
Ragdoll's plot feels like a cross between two fellow Full Moon/Big City films, Killjoy and The Horrible Doctor Bones (granted, it came out before both). Like the latter, a hip-hop group (whose performances inspire vehement fast-forwarding) is strong-armed into signing a contract with a crooked producer. Like the former,...
Rapper Ice Cube
Rappers are busy people, what with all the ho juggling, money stacking, and ride pimping. That's why so few of them have time to fully devote to the craft of acting. And yet so many of them are doing it, mucking up our precious horror films with their half-assed...
Red Water horror movie poster
Not exactly a shining achievement for black roles -- or any roles, for that matter -- Red Water is a by-the-books, made-for-TV killer shark movie. C-grade horror mainstay Coolio is main bad guy Ice, a stereotypical thug who works for stereotypical Caribbean drug kingpin Rick (Tumisho Masha) and is...
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,...
Soulful movie poster
Soulful is an all-over-the-place mix of spirituality, supernatural horror, urban crime, soap opera, musical and softcore pornography. I think that the Christian elements are supposed to supersede all others, but the fact that there are fewer church scenes than there are scenes of doggystyle sex acts makes that a...
Snoop Dogg in Urban Menace horror movie
Generally speaking, urban horror is hit or miss...without the hits. Urban Menace is certainly no hit, but it's (slightly) above average for the genre, thanks in part to the direction of direct-to-video action guru Albert Pyun. Pyun covers up the budgetary constraints of this movie by shooting with some...
Vegas Vampires horror movie
Blaxploitation legends Fred Williamson, Richard Roundtree and Bernie Casey starring in a vampire movie? How could this possibly go wrong? Oh yeah -- because it actually stars Tom "Tiny" Lister, Glenn Plummer and Fredro Starr. The three iconic elder statesmen are sadly little more than window dressing in Vegas...
Venom horror movie poster
If zombies made a comeback in theatrical-release horror in 2004, then 2005 was the year for voodoo (albeit much less successfully), with Skeleton Key and Venom. Whereas Skeleton Key was a pleasant surprise, though, there's little pleasant about this amazingly bland horror entry (The SyFy-quality digital effects certainly don't...
Leprechaun in the Hood movie poster
What can you say about a movie in which a man gets stabbed in the neck with an afro pick and a Leprechaun quotes Martin Luther King, Jr. within the first five minutes? At least it's not directed by Uwe Boll? Actually, this is above average for a direct-to-video...
A Blair Witch Project spoof in the year 2006? Congratulations, you're seven years out of touch! The whole black and/or hip-hop angle was done years ago in The Black Witch Project and Da Hip-Hop Witch (although sadly, Bigfoot might be the best of the bunch) , so what's supposed...
