You can't make this flipping stuff up. The hip-hop horror feature Snoop Dogg's Hood of Horror will have a Hollywood premiere as part of Screamfest 2006 on the evening of Wednesday, October 18th 2006, at Grauman's Mann Chinese 6 Theater located in the Hollywood & Highland Center.
Celebrity red carpet arrivals, including Snoop Dogg and other stars from the film, will begin at 7:00 pm, with the festival screening at 7:30pm. The Xenon Pictures release, produced by BloodWorks, Social Capital and Snoopadelic Films, is scheduled to open in theaters nationwide on Friday, November 17, 2006.
Blending horror, anime, live action, gore, and a strong dose of gallows humor, Snoop Dogg's Hood of Horror presents three tales from a nefarious neighborhood, whose depraved denizens can all look forward to a very unpleasant eternity. Snoop Dogg stars as Devin, a deceased gangster who has the dubious honor of escorting Satan's latest "conquests" to their just reward, and our personal escort through this City of the Damned. Take, for example, a young graffiti artist who receives the power of life and death over others, a wonderful thing if she weren't so consumed by hatred; or the spoiled, entitled son of a Texas oil tycoon who thinks he can get away with murder; and then there's the rapper who has a few skeletons in his closet and they're beating down the door. Part Rod Serling, part Crypt Keeper, but all Dogg, Snoop's presence sets the unrelenting tone for this anthology from hell.
Costarring with Snoop Dogg are Ernie Hudson, Danny Trejo, Method Man, Anson Mount, Brande Roderick, Lyn Shaye, Daniella Alonso, Noel Guglielmi and Pooch Hall, along with WCW Champ Diamond Dallas Page, NBA stars Lamar Odom and Tayshaun Prince, and NFL stars Teyo Johnson, Justin Fargas and Glenn Cadrez. Rounding out this stellar cast are none other than Billy Dee Williams and Jason Alexander.
Directed by Stacy Title, Snoop Dogg's Hood of Horror was written by Jonathan McHugh, Tim Sullivan, Chris Kobin and Jacob Hair. Christopher Tuffin of BloodWorks and Martin Shore of Social Capital, as well as Ted Chung, McHugh and Sullivan served as producers. Gordon Steel and John Baca of The Steel Company served as executive producers, in addition to Snoop Dogg.
The anime segments were produced by Japan's Madhouse, known for such movies as ANIMATRIX and TOKYO HUNTER, under the Direction of John Gaeta, known for his work on the MATRIX trilogy. This film is rated R for pervasive strong violence and gore, sexuality, nudity and language. Yuck.
