TALES FROM THE HOOD
1995, Universal, 98 min, USA, Dir: Rusty Cundieff

Chill or be chilled! Executive produced by Spike Lee, this horror anthology with an African-American focus centers on a mortician (a wonderfully creepy Clarence Williams III) who regales a trio of would-be drug dealers with tales of the deceased at his funeral home. Crooked cops, gangbangers and racist politicians rub shoulders in these four stories to create a highly entertaining mix of terror, humor and social commentary. The solid ensemble cast includes David Alan Grier, Corbin Bernsen and Joe Torry.


35 mm!

TALES FROM THE CRYPT: DEMON KNIGHT
1995, Universal, 92 min, USA, Dir: Ernest R. Dickerson

The popular HBO horror series brings its distinctive mix of thrills and laughs to the big screen (along with plenty of gore). William Sadler stars as a man who stumbles into a remote town one step ahead of The Collector (Billy Zane, simply amazing), a demonic entity trying to lay hands on a key possessing universal power. With Jada Pinkett Smith and Thomas Haden Church.
