Give the Dogg a bone: Snoop’s portrayal of zombified gangsta Jimmy Bones echoes the sadistic cool of horror titans like Krueger and Myers. In the 1970s, Bones, a benevolent hustler who actually walked around the hood handing out cash, was killed by crack-slinging rivals. When some meddling kids aim to turn BonesAmityville-style townhouse into a dance club, a beast is resurrected that only Pam Grier, his baby’s mama, can tame. Sadly, the rapper’s towering presence can’t support a skeletal plot that collapses under the weight of its absurdity and one too many incidents of projectile maggot vomiting.
