"I once owned this and have no idea why it's called From the'Hood. What in the 'Hood are they talking about?In one feature a group of archaeologist dig up a mummy and everybody gets killed on a ship transporting the find to America.The other feature takes place in the jungle with a zombie/cannibal and a tribe that gives the monster offerings of young girls.He eats the eyeballs and entrails,then plays around with their privates.A group of kidnappers take a rich white girl and hold her for ransom in the jungle,you can guess the rest.Just don't waste your time viewing this double feature to see for yourself.The transfer is AWFUL I mean" ATROCIOUS".The absolute worst.Looks like they transferd this from a really bad VHS video tape.The movies themselves seemed like they could have been a riot to watch,except you can't watch this double feature because you can hardly see any thing at all.Also a lot of the nudity is blurred out.Perhaps this probally would have gotten a X rating back in the 80's when the VHS tapes of these movies surfaced.There must have been at least a good dozen scenes totally blurred out.Gave me a headache trying to view this mess.Doesn't even deserve the 1 star amazon forces you to give.Amazon really needs to correct this bulls##t.Again,I can't understand why this is called "Terror Tales From The Hood".The girl with the afro on the cover is a white girl with a curly 70's perm job and a slight tan by the way,in case your wondering and her scenes take place on a ship in the mummy feature.I'm all for old beat up pictures with lines,hairs and scratches.I think they add a certain charm for novelty purposes,but this is beyond beat up.Way too dark and fuzzy to enjoy at all."Terror Tales:From the 'Hood"is my first purchase of the Terror Tales product and last."
