#POCtober: Snoop Dogg’s Bones (2001) & Hood of Horror (2006)

Snoop Dogg waxes so eloquent about the iconic Blaxploitation cinema he grew up on that its easy to see how his ventures into acting have crossed into an updated version of that genre’s horror subset. I feel like eventually there needs to be a third title created to round out these two unrelated forays. Snoop’s ability to generate onscreen charisma with just the right amount of irony or straight menace translates beautifully into supernatural showmanship.
