Frankly, I'm not sure what to make of this latest piece of low-budget horror news ... but here goes:

Snoop Dogg, Ernie Hudson, Danny Trejo, Method Man, Jason Alexander, Lin Shaye, Diamond Dallas Page and Billy Dee Williams will co-star in an inner-city horror anthology entitled Hood of Horror. Now that's a cast. (I can only assume Casper Van Dien was out of town.) But wait, there's more! Not content to simply rehash the same old construct used in the legendary horror classic Tales from the Hood, the producers hope to inject Hood with that one surefire-ingredient that always helps to make a great horror flick: humor.

Producer Christopher Tuffin says, "We are definitely looking at this film as a franchise property along the lines of 'Scary Movie' ... We want to push the envelope combining humor and gore."

I'll give the flick a fair shake, obviously (it's not too often you'll get to see Snoop Dogg, Winston Zeddemore, George Costanza and Lando Calrissian in the same room), but the last time someone used "Snoop" and "horror flick" in the same breath, Bones was born. And I still bear the emotionals scars. ...
