"Hood Of The Living Dead" is, uh, what can I say? Different? Ricky (Washington) is a scientist whose younger brother Jermaine (Daniels) is killed one night in a drive-by shooting. Distraught over his death, Ricky uses one of his experiments to bring Jermaine back to life. Ricky is at first upset to realize that the formula didn't work, but when Jermaine rises from the dead and goes on a bloody killing spree, Ricky is left to wonder what kind of a monster he has created.

The 1.70:1 DVD picture is not anamorphic and exhibits image quality that is not meant to be displayed in high-end home theatres. Washed out colors, limited sharpness, and poor contrast all contribute to the poor image quality. Not much is to be expected from a low-budge production, so save this one for casual viewing.

Reason #73 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I like the movie reviews, and I like the equipment tests. I enjoy the interviews with manufacturers. I also feel that you are a good source for what is coming out next, trends etc. I think you dig a little deeper in your tests of equipment. Sometimes I have to read between the lines, and I know why you don't slam some company's gear. You have more interesting reading.
