Tales from the Hood 2 Arriving on October 2, 2018

Prepare for a new unnerving yet amusingly illustrative narrative in the newest chapter of the nightmarish classic Tales from the Hood feature, Tales from the Hood 2, arriving on Blu-rayTM, DVD, Digital and On Demand on October 2, 2018 from Universal 1440 Entertainment, the original content production arm of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, presented in partnership with 40 Acres and a Mule. Starring Keith David (“Community,” The Nice Guys), Tales from the Hood 2 introduces the audience to four new dreadful short tales, that follow the original film’s cult classic roots. Sparked with both humor and terror, this brand new movie is filled with even more gritty social commentary and cultural subtext that will provoke and haunt viewers, while putting them on the edge of their seats.

Horror is back in the hood! The sequel to the groundbreaking original film Tales from the Hood reunites executive producer and Honorary Academy Award® winner Spike Lee (Do the Right Thing, Malcom X) and writers/directors/producers Rusty Cundieff (“Chappelle’s Show,” “The Wanda Sykes Show“)  and Darin Scott (Menace II Society, Caught Up) for an all-new gripping, horrifying and oftentimes devilishly comical anthology. Keith David stars as Mr. Simms to tell bloodcurdling stories about lust, greed, pride and politics through tales with demonic dolls, possessed psychics, vengeful vixens and historical ghosts. Mr. Simms’s haunting stories will make you laugh…while you scream.

Tales from the Hood 2 will make its world premiere at the 22nd edition of the Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal, Quebec on Friday, July 13.

Tales from the Hood 2 will be available on Blu-rayTM, DVD and Digital.
