Episode 118: Tales from the Hood

November 15, 2017

Tales from the Hood is the 1995 horror anthology film directed by Rusty Cundieff and executive-produced by Spike Lee. Taking a Twilight Zone approach to horror involving Black people is unique in its own right, but adding the social elements to the film is what truly makes Tales from the Hood interesting.

The film delves into police brutality, domestic violence, America's acceptance of white bigots back into mainstream society, and violence via gang and drug warfare. All these stories introduce supernatural/horror elements but lean decidedly into Black American experiences.
