More Detail:

Spike Lee puts his mark on yet another film as the executive producer of TALES FROM THE HOOD, a comedy/horror film set in black urban America. In it, three teens are taken on a tour of a funeral parlor by a ghoulish funeral director, and are told stories of the newly deceased: a cop; a child abuser; a sellout political advisor; and, a murderer. Each tale follows a pattern similar to that presented in the first tale: a realistic story with moral decisions evolving into a twisted horror of pain and punishment. In the end, the boys meet Satan face to face at the climax of their own horrific tale. With heavy doses of morbid humor and graphic violence, each story moves from the realistic to the fantastic and bizarre.

The movie deals with the important topics of drugs, violence and racism, but does so offensivly way by filling the air with constant obscenities and filling the screen with constant graphic violence. Typical of Lee’s films, TALES delivers a message in the madness and issues a challenge: take responsibility for our actions and we can solve our problems simply by choosing to do so. This humanist solution not only denies the ultimate need for God to interact on behalf of mankind, but also trivializes its moral imperative by the humorous and trite horror genre of these tales.
