Snoop To Premiere 'Hood of Horrors' At Indie Film Festival

Snoop Dogg will premiere his new movie Snoop Dogg's Hood of Horror tomorrow (Oct. 18) as part of the independent horror film festival, Screamfest 2006.

Hood of Horror is a collection of three tales about neighborhood residents whose actions determine their fate in the afterlife.

Snoop executive-produced the flick, which blends live action with animation.

The animated segments were produced by Japan's Madhouse ( Animatrix, Tokyo Hunter ) under the eye of Academy Award winner John Gaeta, known for his work on The Matrix trilogy.

"There's so much more I can do with this animation," Snoop Dogg told "Shoot n**as and all kinds of s**t. Get away with everything to where it don't seem as harsh as if I was really doing it." In addition to Snoop Dogg, Hood of Horrors also stars Method Man, Billy Dee Williams, Jason Alexander, Ernie Hudson and wrestler Diamond Dallas Page. Launched in August 2001, Screamfest takes place this year at Grauman's Mann Chinese 6 Theater in Los Angeles. The ten-day horror-fest kicked off Oct. 13 and runs until Oct. 22. Hood of Horror is scheduled for a nationwide theatrical release on Nov. 17.
