The animated introduction revolves around how Devon (voiced by Snoop Dogg) becomes a Hound of Hell, in which he agreed to sell his soul to a demon named Liore (voiced by Hawthorne James) to bring back his dead sister (whom he has accidentally killed). Liore grants him knowledge, strength, and the power to decide who goes to heaven or hell for an unspecified period of time. The animation is switched out showing Devon as a real person, as he narrates the stories.

A female tagger named Posie (Daniella Alonso) is given the power of death by a mysterious Derelict (Danny Trejo), another Hound of Hell who captures her while she tries to escape from some gang members (Teyo Johnson, Noel Gugliemi and Jeffrey Licon) that harmed her mother (Andrea Lion). With it, any tag she "crosses out" causes the gruesome demise of the original tagger. She later suffers the ultimate price when she loses sight of her calling as an artist and starts to abuse her power. The Derelict told her that she could have broken the cycle of murder and violence in her city, but instead she made it worse. He takes the power away and sics the zombies of the recently deceased gang members on her. They lodge a spray-paint can in her head and spray the wall with her blood into a beautiful mural. Derelict tells the viewers "Now that's life imitating art."

A new rapper named SOD (Pooch Hall) is finally starting to gain recognition and fame.

Hood of Horror Movie Review Snoop Doggs Hood of Horror

During an awards show after party, he is confronted by Clara (Lin Shaye), a mysterious woman who seemingly stops time implying she too is a Hound of Hell. She shows him videos from his up-and-coming days: from when he first met Quon (Aries Spears) (another up-coming MC) to Quon's last day when he was gunned down in a liquor store by a masked burglar. During that life, Quon was always there acting as a big brother usually defending SOD when his ego got out of line. Quon was offered a solo career by a British Record Mogul (Jason Alexander) after SOD's behavior was out of control, but Quon refused and stayed with SOD.

When SOD denies having anything to do with his death to Clara, Quon enters the room upon Clara's eyes glowing a familiar color. Back from the dead as a zombie, Quon knows it was really SOD and SOD's manager Jersey (Diamond Dallas Page) who were behind his death revealing the elaborate plot of SOD wearing a bulletproof vest as well as Jersey being the gunman as an act of betrayal and act of fame. Quon then brutally kills Jersey and frames SOD, who is then gunned down by the police during a shootout with them where he dies in the elevator.


During all the stories, Devon tells the audience that each character had the potential to do good in life, but instead, chose to do evil for their own needs that resulted in each of their deaths. After each segment, he takes all the deceased characters to a mysterious elevator. First pulling Posie out of her mural, then dragging Tex Woods Jr. by the horn which is embedded in his neck with his partner Half Pint dragging Tiffany afterwards. After claiming SOD who wakes up in the elevator, Devon takes SOD, Posie, Tex Wood Jr., and Tiffany and sends all of them to a one-way ticket straight to hell, where all of them are further tormented. Devon tells the viewers that what they saw is what he does. When Half-Pint tries to quit, Devon reminds him that he can't because they must do this for all eternity.
