Tales from the Hood 2 gets first official stills featuring Keith David

The sequel to one of the very best horror anthologies out there, TALES FROM THE HOOD is hosting its World Premiere at Montreal's Fantasia International Film Festival, on Friday the 13th of July. The Fantasia 2018 website went live today, and tucked on the film's page there are three first-look photos from TALES FROM THE HOOD 2

Two of the images feature actor Keith David's new, stoic take on the devilish Portifoy Simms, played with great comic flair by Clarence Williams III in the first film. David displays gleeful showmanship and silent bemusement as Simms, and Bryan Batt demonstrates a plethora of facets as a phony medium.

Here's a quick rundown on the sequel:

Keith David stars as a contemporary Mr. Simms to tell bloodcurdling stories about lust, greed, pride, and politics through tales with demonic dolls, possessed psychics, vengeful vixens, and historical ghosts. Mr. Simms’s haunting stories will make you laugh... while you scream.

TALES FROM THE HOOD 2 is squarely in the tradition of outrageous, entertaining anthology horror, but it also addresses serious issues with a forceful point of view, just as folklore has done throughout history.

Original TALES FROM THE HOOD makers Rusty Cundieff (FEAR OF A BLACK HAT) and Darin Scott (DARK HOUSE, the upcoming DEEP BLUE SEA II) are back as writers/directors here (both scripted the first film, with Cundieff directing). TALES FROM THE HOOD 2 reunites executive producer Spike Lee for an all-new gripping, horrifying and oftentimes devilishly comical anthology. 

The film has its World Premiere at Montreal's Fantasia International Film Festival, on Friday the 13th of July. You can check out the new first official images from TALES FROM THE HOOD 2 below and then make sure to let us know what you think!
