It’s the horror news no one was waiting to hear, but according to Snoop Dogg there will be a Hood of Horror sequel. Cue collective groan. The 2006 flick, directed by Stacy Title, was essentially a ghetto version of “Tales From The Crypt” with three tales of terror told by the Hound of Hell (Snoop Dogg) that revolve around the residents of an inner-city neighborhood whose actions determine where they will go in the afterlife. Hood of Horror also starred Danny Trejo and Daniella Alonso.
Bloody Disgusting’s Australian correspondent Maria Lewis spoke to the “dee oh double gee” when he was Down Under promoting his new album, “Doggumentary.” The rapper/actor said a sequel was something they were “definitely” considering.
“I’m a big fan of that movie so I think there will be a part two, three, what have you,” he said.
“I loved doing that movie.
“Actually, that wasn’t a movie I even liked when we were shooting it because it was awfully quick.
“But when it came out I kind of fell in love with that movie, I got fond of it.”
Snoop went as far to say he had even discussed further chapters with co-stars Aries Spears and Trejo, who also played a Hound of Hell. It will be interesting to see just how much support there is for a sequel/s, considering Hood Of Horror made a devastating $25, 900 at the US box office with an estimated budget of $5 million. We don’t know too many doggies who would want more of that biscuit.
Snoop, who has appeared in everything from Starksy and Hutch to Training Day, said a future in film, not rap, is where he sees himself heading.
“I think I will venture off into the film side because that’s where I can tell more stories of my vision, as opposed to my music.
“Because my music makes you close your eyes and you have to visualize what I’m saying.
“But if I was to shoot a movie you can see what I’m saying right off the top.”
With “Doggumentary” out now, Snoop said his next project was producing a TV show for his daughter Cori who wants to be “the black Miley Cyrus.”
