In the wake of the recent success of Jordan Peele’s Get Out, studios have been racing to make their own “socially aware” genre films.
That's why 20 years later one of the most underrated Horror Films of all time, Rusty Cundieff‘s 1995 Tales From the Hood, is getting a much-needed sequel. This flick was hugely ahead of its time and an abso-fucking-lute classic to us. It put an urban spin on “Tales From the Crypt” and sharing several stories in what is easily one of the best anthology films ever made.

Yup, that’s Cundieff’s official Twitter account in which he shares a photo from his location scouting session for the yet-to-be-announced Tales From the Hood sequel. The good news is that he’s returning, and we can only assume/hope that co-writer Darin Scott will be as well.
In the 1995 film, a funeral director (Clarence Williams III) tells four strange tales of horror to three drug dealers he traps in his place of business. It was as much of a socially relevant movie then as it is now. Things are so tense and so horrible in 2018 that the filmmakers should have a lot to say.
What do you guys think?
