This early 2000’s thriller/horror revolves around Jimmy Bones (Snoop) who was a protector of sorts for his now rundown neighborhood. When he was alive, he served as the community’s emblem of unity and betterment. However, his watch was cut short after being slain by those close to him. Decades after his passing, Bones is resurrected to tidy-up the streets of his old stomping grounds and enact revenge on those who betrayed him; this also includes anyone who gets in his way.

The splendid development of the characters along with the enticing world of the block combine to give us quite a lot of tension to keep you on the edge of your seat. If you are on the hunt for something fun and unpredictable, look no further. Do yourself a favor and throw this on the TV and relax with some popcorn and your favorite Halloween candy.
