After much deliberation I ordered Bones from the system. I have read everything from this movie being terrible to being very good.I'm a horror movie guy and I will give any movie a try and usually I will find some good in any movie.So when I watched this movie I was expecting the worst.Well I have to tell it wasn't bad at all,I liked it.The story was one of revenge from the grave,it worked. I'm not a big Snoop fan but he did well in his roll.Acting was overall not bad,give it a shot.Good effects,great main house where the action took place,better than I was ready for.A three and one half stars for me.

"This is a very cool Nightmare On Elm Street-esque horror flick that does everything right. Great plot, great acting, Pam Grier, and awesome special effects are just some of the things this movie has going for it. I was on the edge of my seat most of the time, just waiting to see what disturbing imagery was about to be thrown at me next. If you are a fan of old-school Wes Craven, or just the horror genre in general, check this movie out. It's very good. The DVD is PACKED with extra features too...it's very worth it!"
It was good

"This movie was good, it would have got 5 stars but the ending was trash. The special effects are good and the story was good and the movie was tight up until the end, where it changed to garbage."
Snoop was good

"This movie wasn't that good. Snoop's character was good but most of the movie was actually kind of stupid. There were a lot of scenes that made me say "Oh my God that's so dumb" but there were also a few scenes that I thought were pretty cool. There was a lot of blood and gore in this movie, that's really the only thing that kept me interested. This is the kind of movie you watch once, not worth buying. Rent this one."
Black Horror Flick Merits 5 Stars!

"Bones is an african-american horror flick that can stand with any of the all white cast horrors. Bones stars Snoop Dogg, Pam Grier, Khalil Cain and Clifton Powell.Bones is a tale of betrayal, murder and revenge. It is also a story within a story. The past and present day scenes are mixed together nicely. If the viewer needs a potty break or snack, my advice is to pause the tape...you don't want to miss a single detail.In 1979, Jimmy Bones (Snoop Dogg) was a well respected hoodlum for lack of a better title, who loved and protected his black community. Other street hustlers wanted to bring crack into the hood and Jimmy Bones did not approve. He is brutally murdered in front of his woman (Pam Grier), body guard and childhood buddy.Present day has some young buppies from the suburbs purchasing property in the ghetto/hood so that they can open a club as a business venture. They want to show themselves approved to their successful father. After purchasing the run down brownstone that belonged to Jimmy Bones, the terror is unleashed! Prepare yourself for thrills, chills, terror, bloody murder scenes and lots of screams with a bit of humor added in the most unlikely spots. As the story merges 1979 and present day (twenty plus years later) you will know that this should be a classic and wonder why it did not get as much recognition as it should have at the box office.For those old school viewers...the writer's inspiration must have been the 1970s horror flick J.D.'s Revenge."

"BONES stars rap artist Snoop Doggy Dogg as a gangster from the 1970's who comes back from the dead to punish the people who betrayed him and who are responsible for his death. The cast includes sexy actress Bianca Lawson and Pam Grier, the special effects in the film are above average, and the script has many plotlines running through it. I saw this movie on Halloween night and it was much better than I expected. BONES is a hip, edgy thriller that has horror, suspense, drama, and even a little bit of romance. Snoop Dogg pulls it off as a good guy gone bad when he comes back from the dead!"
