      Mark H. Harris Black Horror Movies I'll resist the urge to make a pun about how "horrible" this film is - although it is pretty bad. Rated: 1.8/5 Jan 10, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member The "Oh, so appropriately titled" Horrible Dr. Bones concerns a notorious record producer, Dr. Bones, who is quickly established as an evil supernatural force that plays the hip-hop field by looking for fresh talent to use in a fiendish plan to control living people and turn him into his zombie army. In walks Urban Protectors, a lame positive R&B group whose members are desperate to hit it big and cannot believe their instance success when Dr. Bones wants to sign them, not to mention bang the shit out of curvy frontwoman Sarah Scott Davis (some may remember her as the better looking, not to mention unlucky, one of the two black militant chicks from Phantasm 3). After an overlong dream where Dr. Bones haunts the group collectively, he finally begins his fiendish plan, which pretty much goes nowhere. Rather than a good film, the Horrible Dr. Bones winds up being just plain horrible with awful special effects, amateur acting (no surprise), and a paper-thin story where the unnecessary is streeeeetched out way too long, leaving all the horror and action bits to just come and go in the blink of an eye. Adding to the crappiness of this film is the large body count (normally a good thing) which is primarily unsympathetic characters and bad guys. Not a single genuine protagonist is killed, let alone hurt in this film. Though it incites plenty of unintentional laughs, this film is pretty much dumb, boring, and lifeless. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member The flaws will probably stick in the viewer's mind for a very, very long time. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member "The Horrible Dr. Bones..." Hell yeah! Zombies controlled by hip-hop DJ! I mean... take a look at the exploding head scene, at the top-notch acting, at an extremely macabre antagonist! Among the best horror ever made. Scary as hell! 3/100 Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
