Bones - The Pimpin Poltergeist gets Paranormal Payback - Karmically Cool in the Hood

Updated on June 17, 2014

Here I go again with the cheesy horror flicks. I just can't get enough. This one has got attitude, baby. It was recommended to me some years back by a student. He had attitude too. But, it's all good.

Starring the coolest cat around, Snoop Dogg and the foxy Pam Greir of 70's cult stardom, Bones is a gritty, ghetto based tale of betrayal with some seriously paranormal twists. As if that wasn't enough, the karmic irony abounds.

Bouncing between past and present with the hip hop beat steady thumping, our story is one of honor and betrayal, love and vengeance, success and the price of it, in this case blood.

Buckets and buckets of blood.

Atypical of the norm, our villain is also our victim, our catalyst, scary-boo and save the day too all wrapped up one ultra suave, pissed off, poltergeist. A fast moving tale of former sins long forgotten biting people in their proverbial behinds, Bones keeps the action tight and gives gobs of gore.

The present is never far removed from the past.

In this case, the past up and asserts itself ripping through the veil that separates the living from the dead, with a vengeance. Without giving it all away, let's just say the current generation, on a steady rise to success, gets thrown some curves. When past and present collide, it's time to pay up. Think the Biblical phrase sins of the father.

Back in the day, Jimmy Bones, played by Snoop Dogg at his smoothest, was the baddest cat on the block. Pimpin was in style and cool was the rule. With Pam Greir of Foxy Brown fame on his arm, nothing could stop Jimmy's rise to the top. So everyone thought. Except the gal with the psychic twinkle. But seriously, in what movie does anyone ever listen to her?

He might be bad to the bone but he's no thug.

Not your typical hood bad boy, Jimmy lived by a code. Not one to be found in the law books of prim and proper to be sure, but it was one of taking care of one's own. He was no law abiding citizen, no pillar of the community so to speak, but ever generous to those less fortunate around him, always looking to help a brother and loyal to a fault.

Jimmy Bones was the baddest bad ass around that was still smooth in ways sung of by children in the street, a hero among his own.

You just can't keep a good man down.

Betrayed in Julius Caesar fashion, left dead in an unmarked grave and forgotten by all but a handful, watch as Jimmy Bones returns to take his revenge, ghetto style.

Revisit the days of 70's slick while still being in modern, hip hop, horror heaven with this cult classic containing the coolest cast.

Released in 2001, director Ernest R. Dickerson takes horror in the hood to whole new heights. If you're looking for high drama and eloquent dialog, this isn't it. If you want bad ass mixed with some paranormal pimping, Bones has it in abundance. If you're a Snoop fan, someone who appreciates the hotness of Pam, a horror buff or hip hop lover, scope on Bones and see Snoop Dogg break bad in the hood.

      The Thing (80s version), Poltergeist, Event Horizon, and yes, all things Stephen King are some of my favorites. Tremors might win the top prize though. I'll admit you've piqued my interest - I've added Bones to my netflix queue...
