I still remember it as if it were yesterday. A friend of mine asked me to go see Tales from the Hood at the dollar theater. It was at the end of the summer and we had already witnessed Batman Forever, Congo, and of course Judge Dredd. Yeah… it was not a great summer. I forked over my two dollars and went in with no expectations. Which is the best way to see any movie really, I was thoroughly entertained and left wanting more from this oddball horror film that was Tales from the Hood. See, there aren’t nearly enough horror anthology films out there and thankfully this one is coming back with a new Blu-ray from the horror masters at Scream Factory. Check out the full details below on its April releases!
