Universal has released a little trailer for the upcoming release of Tales From The Hood 2. A sequel to the 1995 horror anthology, the film is written and directed by Rusty Cundieff andDarin Scott, and executive produced by Spike Lee. Following in the footsteps of the original, the film will feature the mortician Mr. Simms (this time played by Keith David), as he tells a series of horror tales a la Tales From The Crypt. As a big fan of the original, I can’t wait to check this one out.

Tales From The Hood 2 is premiering at Fantasia Festival in Montreal later this month and will be out on VOD and DVD/Blu-ray October 2nd.

Horror is back in the hood! The sequel to the groundbreaking original film Tales From the Hood reunites executive producer Spike Lee (Honorary Academy Award® winner) and writers/directors/producers Rusty Cundieff and Darin Scott for an all-new gripping, horrifying and oftentimes devilishly comical anthology. Keith David stars as a contemporary Mr. Simms to tell bloodcurdling stories about lust, greed, pride and politics through tales with demonic dolls, possessed psychics, vengeful vixens and historical ghosts. Mr. Simms’s haunting stories will make you laugh…while you scream.
