* ItMakesSenseInContext: Invoked when Mr. Simms opens the second casket. We don't see it at first, but the gangstas are shocked and ask, "What the fuck happened to ''this'' nigga?!" Simms tells the story of the little boy who draws voodoo doll pictures and ultimately kills his abusive stepfather Carl by crumbling it up, stepping on it, and burning it. We then see Carl's mangled corpse in the casket.

''Tales From The Hood'' is a 1995 horror anthology film, directed by Rusty Cundieff. The film features four short African American-themed horror stories, with a FramingDevice that is itself a horror story.

The film opens by introducing us to the four characters starring in a frame story. A trio of teenage drug dealers operating in South Central Los Angeles visit a mortuary to purchase drugs from its owner. The drugs are stored deep within the building and Ball (De'aundre Bonds), Bulldog (Samuel Monroe, Jr.) and Stack (Joe Torry) have to follow the mysterious Mr. Simms (Clarence Williams III) in a virtual tour of its locations. Meanwhile, he takes the time to narrate stories related to his recent "customers." In his words, "Death - it comes in many strange packages."

* DyingDream: Crazy K is shot by three rival gangsters and arrested by the cops. In prison, he agrees to be put through an experimental therapy where he's shown pictures comparing black gang violence to KKK violence against blacks. Then the ''people he knows he's murdered'' show up to ask him why they deserved to die. Either it's a dying dream, or he's already in Hell. (Or at the very least, some form of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purgatory Purgatory]], which would fit with a ''lot'' of the symbolism in the segment, including the fact that the staff of the institution tend to dress in all white, the offer of redemption being accompanied by the need for purification, the state of torment while there, etc.)
