Double bill of the comedy horror anthology co-directed by Rusty Cundieff and Darin Scott. In ‘Tales from the Hood’ (1995) three gangsters approach funeral director and enigmatic storyteller Mr Simms (Clarence Williams III) who has promised them a batch of drugs that he claims to have found. As the men enter his funeral home, he regales them with tales about police corruption and institutional racism, however, as Mr Simms reaches a conclusion the three men learn that they have a part to play in his story. In ‘Tales from the Hood II’ (2018) Mr Simms (Keith David) has been hired by weapons manufacturer Dumass Beach (Bill Martin Williams) to tell crime stories to the AI robots he is creating that will allow them to detect criminals and enforce the law. However, as Simms regales them with his violent tales the intended outcome is not what Beach anticipated.
