The Makers Of ‘Tales From The Hood’ Reunited For ‘Tales From The Crib’!
Having just revisited New Line CInema’s 1995 Tales From the Hood, I couldn’t believe how socially relevant it was. In fact, 20 years later the movie may be even more prevalent now than when it was released. This must-see anthology stars Clarence Williams III as a funeral director tells four strange tales of horror with an African American focus to three drug dealers he traps in his place of business.
Being that Tales From the Hood is so important by today’s standards, it’s not at all surprising that the original filmmakers – writer/director Rusty Cundieff and co-writer/producer Darin Scott – have reteamed on a new tale, Tales From the Crib.
In the new anthology, which recently wrapped production in Los Angeles, “With the maliciously gleeful MISTER MALEVOLENT as our host, we witness an anthology of stories about terrible people who wind up getting a real taste of their own medicine…”
A casting call reveals that Mister Malevolent is a play on Rod Serling, an eccentric but articulate man who clearly relishes a good story about bad people. He is our guide into the Tales of the Crib, thus introducing each story and has a few words to say about how they end up…
The titles fro each segment include: “White Flight”, “Ratters”, “The Prosecutor”, “The Samaritan”, “Mates”, “Hate Radio”, and “The Healer”. You can read all about the film at the following breakdown.
The film stars Galen Howard, Michael Felix, Melissa Hayden, and Salina Duplessis, with Duplessis mentioning that she acted opposite Danny Trejo on social media.
Michael Mendelsohn and Jim Steele produce, with casting director Christine Sheaks also co-producing.
Scream Factory is releasing the original Tales From the Hood on Blu-ray April 18th.
Last week, it was announced that Scream Factory will be releasing a special collector's edition Blu-ray of the 1995 horror anthology TALES FROM THE HOOD on April 18, 2017. That Blu-ray may not be the only thing HOOD fans have to look forward to with excitement, as I have stumbled across some evidence that HOOD writer/director Rusty Cundieff and co-writer/producer Darin Scott have re-teamed for a new horror anthology called TALES FROM THE CRIB.
This evidence appears on the social media accounts of actors who were involved with the project, including Galen Howard, who says he finished working on the film seven weeks ago. TALES FROM THE CRIB is also listed on the online résumés of actors Michael Felix, Melissa Hayden, and Salina Duplessis, with Duplessis mentioning that she acted opposite Danny Trejo.
The most information is revealed through a casting call that was posted on TheDreamUnlocked back in September. According to that, Cundieff and Scott wrote the anthology together and this time share directing duties. Michael Mendelsohn and Jim Steele are listed as producers, with casting director Christine Sheaks also co-producing. The synopsis on the casting call:With the maliciously gleeful MISTER MALEVOLENT as our host, we witness an anthology of stories about terrible people who wind up getting a real taste of their own medicine...
