Tales From The Hood (A 1995 Horror Anthology Film) (+playlist)



The film opens in South Central Los Angeles when a trio gang of teenage drug dealers, Stack (Joe Torry), Ball (De'aundre Bonds) and Bulldog (Samuel Monroe Jr.), arrive at Simms' Funeral Home to purchase some drugs from Mr. Simms (Clarence Williams III), the mortuary's eccentric owner. Mr. Simms claims that he found the drugs in an alley and has them safely stored in the mortuary. He asks the dealers to help him get the drugs and, as the four make their way through the building, relates stories about some of his recent "customers" as he states, "Death, it comes in many strange packages". The first casket is a man named Clarence.
