One horror film I greatly enjoyed recently was “Tales from the Hood.” I know it’s an obvious pick right now, but I feel like it had a big influence on the more recent “Get Out.” Admittedly, I only got the Blu-ray a while back so I could get free shipping on Ghibli’s “Ocean Waves.” But holy hell, was I not prepared for how scary “Tales from the Hood” was going to be; maybe even more so than Peele’s film. Where “Get Out” focused solely on the worries that come from dating interracial, “Hood’s” anthology format let it draw from the multiple racial-based terrors that come from real life. What else do I even say about “Tales from the Hood” that hasn’t already been said by now? It truly is the shit!
