Tales From The Hood | Tales From The Hood 2 – Hey everyone! Welcome to another episode of Motion Picture Meltdown! After a great response last year, we’ve decided to do another MPM Black History Month, where we only highlight films that are directed, acted, or written by African-Americans. In this episode, we roast through one of the staple horror anthologies from the 90’s, Tales From The Hood, as well as the recent 2018 sequel, Tales From The Hood 2. Both of these movies were directed by Rusty Cundieff (The Chappelle Show) and executive produced by Spike Lee. You’ll hear us talk about our personal hell, we talk about how relevant the stories from the 90’s are twenty-five years later, and we argue whether big villains are scarier than small villains.
