BONES (2002) ** ½

If you crossed A Nightmare on Elm Street with J.D.’s Revenge, you might end up with something like this.  Snoop Dogg plays Jimmy Bones, a big time pimp who gets killed by a corrupt cop (Howling IV’s Michael T. Weiss) in the 70’s.  In the present day, some teens trying to open up a nightclub in Bones’ old stomping grounds accidentally unleash (no pun intended) the Dogg’s spirit and he sets out for revenge.  Snoop makes bad Freddy Kruger style wisecracks and the movie predictably grinds to a halt whenever he isn’t onscreen.  It ain’t great but any movie in which Snoop Dogg pukes up thousands of maggots is okay by me.  Pam Grier co-stars as Bones’ former flame.  Tales from the Crypt Presents Demon Knight’s Ernest Dickerson directed.
