Tales from the Hood (1995) synopsis:
A creepy mortician, Mr. Simms, who attempts to scare teenage drug dealer Stack and his friends straight by telling them four horrifying stories. One is about a guilt-riddled cop who goes crazy after ignoring his corrupt partner. He also tells of a meek schoolboy with terrifying supernatural powers. Although the young thugs want to take their drugs and escape Mr. Simms, he still has two more tales to tell.
