I’m happy crying over the #1 horror movie on Starz today. This severely underrated iconic anthology is finally getting just a little bit of the attention it deserves. It is an honor and a privilege to alert you all that Tales From The Hood is representing our genre on a premium channel’s Top 10 Charts! Take a long lunch and rejoice in the streets, but after reading the rest of this article, obviously.
Rotten Tomatoes Synopsis
“A creepy mortician, Mr. Simms (Clarence Williams III), attempts to scare teenage drug dealer Stack (Joe Torry) and his friends straight by telling them four horrifying stories. One is about a guilt-riddled cop (Anthony Griffith) who goes crazy after ignoring his corrupt partner (Michael Massee). He also tells of a meek schoolboy (Brandon Hammond) with terrifying supernatural powers. Although the young thugs want to take their drugs and escape Mr. Simms, he still has two more tales to tell.”

Tales From The Hood is directed by Rusty Cundieff. It was written by Rusty Cundieff and Darin Scott. The film stars Rosalind Cash, Rusty Cundieff, David Alan Grier, Anthony Griffith, Wings Hauser, Lamont Bentley, Paula Jai Parker, Joe Torry, and Clarence Williams III.
While the film never got all the flowers it deserved from critics, it has a large fanbase. While we’re all sad that so many members of the cast are no longer here to witness this moment, it’s really cool to see people keep the love for the movie alive by sharing their favorite quotes and fan art inspired by the anthology.

I am a Tales From The Hood stan account. Watching critics disregard it instead of addressing their biases is one of my villain origin stories. If you are not familiar with this movie, and never take another recommendation from me again, please head over to Starz immediately.
