Editors Note
Note BONES features rapper Snoop Dogg in his first starring role as the benevolent neighborhood kingpin, Jimmy Bones, who is betrayed and murdered in 1979, and returns to get his horrific revenge twenty years later. Patrick (Khalil Kain), the son of one of the witnesses to the murder, Jeremiah (Clifton Powell), decides to turn the creepy abandoned brownstone where Bones once lived into a nightclub. He and his crew move into the building, where a terrifying presence makes itself known. Patrick also meets the beautiful Cinnabar (Bianca Lawson), the daughter of Bones' old flame, Pearl (Pam Grier). But the vengeful spirit released from the old house jeopardizes their newfound love, and their lives. Drenched in stage blood and sprinkled with sex, BONES delivers its gory chills in the style of Italian horror masters like Mario Bava and Dario Argento, with a touch of Clint Eastwood's Man With No Name thrown in. Director Ernest Dickerson proved his skill at horror with the entertaining TALES FROM THE CRYPT: DEMON KNIGHT. Here, he puts a hip-hop spin on a classic horror narrative. The updated motif gives the film a sociopolitical edge, and Snoop's performance harkens back to the blaxploitation films of the 1970s.
New York Times "...BONES ranks high....Snoop Dogg is every inch the sly, strutting, silky-voiced street hustler..." 10/24/2001 p.E5
Box Office "...Snoop Dogg carves out isolated moments of dignity for himself with his coolly charming take on the title character..." 12/01/2001 p.59
Chicago Sun-Times "...BONES has plenty of humor mixed in with blood and gore....The one-liners come quick....Snoop Dogg is cool, calm and charismatic..." 10/24/2001 p.54
Entertainment Weekly "...Snoop invests snarling meanness with as much authority as Clint Eastwood used to..." 11/02/2001 p.48
