Filmmakers and writers Rusty Cundieff and Darin Scott unleashed “Tales From the Hood” on the world more than 20 years ago. The horror anthology channeled the campy gore of “Tales From the Crypt” into tales of vengeance against brutal police, Southern politicians and other avatars of systemic racism. The cult classic’s creators and original executive producer Spike Lee return for a sequel that promises the same social relevance and thrills.
The trailer for “Tales From the Hood 2,” which debuted online yesterday (July 10), mixes clips of military police and violent arrests with scenes of Mr. Simms (Keith David, “Greenleaf”) leading viewers into four new nightmares. “Sparked with both humor and terror, this brand new movie is said to be filled with even more gritty social commentary and cultural subtext that will provoke and haunt viewers, while putting them on the edge of their seats,” reads the description for the trailer.
“Tales From the Hood 2” debuts on October 2 via DVD and Blu-Ray.
