This wickedly fun horror flick was initially released in theaters on October 24, 2001, and has always been a favorite of mine.
Rapper Snoop Dogg plays two roles in this film.
He plays a kind-hearted gangster intent on keeping his neighborhood safe from crime and then plays a wise-cracking vengeful spirit.
The plot of the film was pretty basic. It centers on a group of urban teens who plan on turning an old and abandoned housing building into a hip night club. There they accidentally awaken the spirit of Jimmy Bones who had been murdered there 20 years before. As the film progresses, he offers some nasty and gruesome surprises for the teens and the criminals who have taken over his old neighborhood. He hunts down the ones who betrayed and murdered him.
While not being over the top gory, this movie does feature some nice kills and plenty of maggots, pieces of flesh and features an old school line from a spiritual dog during one particular nasty scene.
Fans of Pam Grier should eat this one up as she plays the mother of one of the teens (Bianca Lawson). She also plays the long lost love of the murdered Jimmy Bones. Her character in the movie displays her maternal instincts quite well. As a tortured woman who is still clinging on to the past. She is horrified when she finds out her past is still alive. Very good and shocking performance by Pam Grier.
I will say this is the perfect Halloween type of film to watch and enjoy.
The blu ray edition is including 12 different special features. Including 24 minutes of deleted scenes. I’m really excited for as well as plenty of audio commentaries and scenes interviews.
Absolutely looking forward to ordering this one and adding it to my collection!
