YMMV: Tales from the Hood

  • Cringe Comedy: Carl, while in a crumpled heap on the floor, says to Sissy, "This shit ain't over, bitch!"
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Christopher Young's score beautifully accents the movie, especially the music that accompanies the Twist Ending, "Chorale Postlude"
  • Narm: WELCOME TO HELL, motherfuckerssss! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
  • Nightmare Fuel: The dolls. Jesus H. Tapdancing Christ, the dolls. The mural featuring said dolls does not help matters,
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: Martin Moorehouse asks the rather poignant question: "Where were you when I needed you, brother?"
    • When Crazy K tries to justify some of his murders as killing people who had wronged him, a little girl (Tasha Johnson) with a hole in her chest points out "I didn't do anything."
  • The Woobie: The dead little girl. She politely points out that she was only playing in her room when the stray bullets got her. To a lesser extent Walter, but he commits patricide.
    • Well, technically he wasn't the one who did it in the end...
    • And besides, he wasn't intending to kill Carl. He was trying to stop him from brutalizing his mother and teacher.
