    Tales from the Hood

    Well, it sounds like "Tales from the Darkside" got a whole lot darker. It's a bit of a crude joke, but maybe this anthology could have been more pointed about what it's ripping off by having these tales be told by a Crip.

I don't reckon this film can further undermine the credibility of the "Hidden Colors" series for either fans or critics, though the suppressed history is extremely white this time. The true terror is that it's not history, as an underground group of wealthy eugenists conspire to release a virus that would eliminate "undesirables" in a local middle school,…
