##New Horror Spoof To Star Snoop Dogg
Rapper’s Production Co. 'Throws Bones' to Jason Alexander, Billy Dee Williams, et al
Take one Rap Star, mix liberally with a cast of Has-Beens and Never-Was’s, half-bake some kind of Scary Story, sprinkle generously with Hot Babes and you get?
Hollywood’s latest entry in the dumb movie department, Snoop Dogg
’s Hood Of Horror
Executive-Produced by Snoop’s own Snoopadelic Films
, 'Hood' is described as a "hip hop horror anthology" which "follows the fortunes of the residents of an inner city neighborhood whose actions in this life will determine their destination in the afterlife".
Our guide through the three horrific Hood Tales is none other than the Snoopster himself, who chews the scenery like Lassie
on a leg bone.
The tag-line? "It’s NOT all good in da hood."
Aside from former Seinfeld
star Jason Alexander
and Colt 45
shill Billy Dee Williams
, the cast reads like a who’s who of Hollywood extras, many of whom are barely known on the small screen.Ernie Hudson
, Danny Trejo
, Aries Spears
and Lin Shaye
(who also appears in Snakes On A Plane!
) are the most recognizable names in Hood, which was scripted by the same team who wrote this year’s direct-to-DVD release 2001 Maniacs
Appearing as eye candy are April 2000 Playboy
Centerfold and former Baywatch
star Brande Roderick
as the hot girl who screams a lot, and Sydney Tamiia Poitier
, daughter of Sidney Poitier
, as the black girl who gets her head cut off.
If you can stay awake, look for cameo appearances by Detroit Pistons
forward Tayshawn Prince
forward Lamar Odom
and rapper Method Man
Filmed entirely in Los Angeles, Hood is scheduled for release as soon as the editors are able to hammer the raw film into some kind of semblance of a movie. (Marty Sherman)

B.) Darryl F. Who? I hope Brande Roderick takes her clothes off.
C.) What’s a Millennium? She'd better take her clothes off.##
