MAGGOT INFESTED SCREAM FEST – Snoop Dogg stars in Bones
April 05, 2002
Murdered back in 1979 when he was the local neighbourhood protector, our Jimmy is still a little miffed more than 20 years later as he continually dines out on the unfortunate souls
who stray into his abandoned former home.
Eventually circumstances engineer it so Jimmy can suck up enough people to put flesh on his bones and start hunting down the four men who killed him in a row over drugs.
The supporting cast, apart from Pam Grier, are decidedly second class, but Snoop Dogg makes this horror jaunt entertaining.
He has more than enough 70s style and swagger to convince as the loved and respected top dog in a black neighbourhood until he is gunned down.
And then there is enough menace as he tears through his victims.
I’m not a fan of his music, but his acting certainly stands the test on the evidence of this outing. Snoop definitely puts one over on the woeful rappers-turned-(bad) actors in recent release Turn It Up.
The one problem with Bones is that Snoop is very much both hero and villain. You simply don’t want him to die, no matter how many corpses he piles up, and that is out of touch with where the film should have headed.
His victims, even the innocents, inspire no sympathy at all.
You will be pleasantly surprised.
