Def by Temptation

When a minister’s son starts questioning his spirituality, he heads to the big city to figure out his future. But when he and his best friend become entangled in a series of local homicides, the sexy, supernatural succubus responsible sets her bloodthirsty sights on them as her next victims. The sole directorial effort from former child star James Bond III (who also wrote, produced, and starred), Def by Temptation is a macabre masterwork of Black Horror, filled with stunning, neon-tinged visuals by cinematographer Ernest Dickerson, an electrifying soundtrack, and an incredible ensemble cast including Bill Nunn, Samuel L. Jackson, and Kadeem Hardison.

Bones

This is the story of Jimmy Bones / Black as night and hard as stone / Gold-plated deuce like the King of Siam / Got a switchblade loose and a diamond on his hand / They took his life, he never rested in peace / Now his vengeance will be unleashed. Now twenty-two years after his murder, Jimmy Bones (Snoop Dogg) is back and hungry for revenge. Director Ernest Dickerson stylishly crafts a gothic horror tale that’s ripe for rediscovery, combining moody cinematography, maggot-spewing gore, a killer hip hop soundtrack, and a stellar cast that includes Pam Grier, Clifton Powell, and Ginger Snaps’ Katharine Isabelle.
