The DVD version's not up to much, but it's worth getting for the film. I haven't the slightest clue why, but this film had the strangest effect on me. I still remember it all these years later (I first saw it when I was about 15), and the the story has a real spark of...not originality, but something. Without the Tales From The Crypt tag I bet this film would be thought much better of- it has a superb villain (whenever I see the Devil on film, I always compare him to Zane's character and performance in this, which is ridiculous, I know), a great supporting cast, and plenty of guts. Seriously- check it out.

I was a big fan of the Tales from the Crypt TV show. Thus, I am a fan of this movie. It feels a lot like one of the Creepshow movies but has enough gore, humor and OTT carnage but it just doesn't have enough scope to brake away from the TV show and stand alone as a big screen movie.

Brayker (William Sadler) is a drifter who stumbles upon a lonely desert town after an explosive confrontation with The Collector (Billy Zane), a supremely evil being with Satanical powers who is desperate to get his hands on Brayker's mysterious talisman. Brayker spends the night in a shabby motel but The Collector soon turns up and unleashes hell upon the motel and it's inhabitants.

This is where the fun really kicks in. The Collector has fun enticing the residents (made up of Dick Miller, Charles Fleisher, Thomas Haden Church, Brenda Bakke, Jada Pinkett-Smith and CCH Pounder) to join him on his dark quest and steal the talisman from Brayker.

Director Ernest Dickerson (who also did Surviving The Game [DVD] [1994]) does not hold back on the gore as he spoofs 1950's B-movies, honor's the TV show and pays brilliant homage to the Tales From The Crypt comic book legacy. It may be nothing more than a cheap, horror comedy with no artistic integrity but Dickerson still successfully pulls of a movie that will satisfy and entertain anyone who watches it.

Half of the movie's appeal lies with Billy Zane who acts out the role of The Collector with such wicked charm and delightful evil. You can tell he's having a great time and he makes a counterpoint villain for Sadler's dishevelled hero.

Format: VHS Tape
probably the last of the great blood and latex,old school F/X type horror flicks of the 80's /90's. Loaded with fantastic gore and transformation sequences to rival John carpenters,"The thing" With a compelling,Mythological storyline that drives the narrative along and stellar performances from all the leads and support. This could easily have been sequelised and become another hollywood cash cow franchise based solely on Billy zane's tour de force turn as the queer fella/olde nick demon master but instead we got a second installment in the "crypt" series with"Bordello of blood" which,great title aside, is not as good but has its moments and again comes up with the gore and demon F/X.but falls short as a pale copy of "From dusk to dawn". Demon Knight however towers above and weaves a dark and hellish tale of unfortunates trapped in a brothel having to fend off the nefarious forces of hell and billy zanes' army of gooey gargoyles.An entertaining mix of dark humour and grande guignol bloodshed which still packs a punch. Thanx

Format: DVD
This DVD features Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight (1995), the first motion picture to be taken from the popular TV series Tales from the Crypt (1989). The film begins with the Crypt Keeper (John Kassir) - as in the TV series - introducing the audience to the creepy story that will follow, whilst offering his ghoulishly bad but amusing jokes.

Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight
Demon Knight sees a world-weary ex-soldier, Frank Brayker (William Sadler), as the guardian of an ancient key that contains the power to unlock pure evil. He is on the road, always one step ahead of the Collector (Billy Zane), an equally sinister and charming character who will try and gain possession of the key at any cost. The Collector wants to bring about the apocalypse. Brayker stumbles across a boarding house somewhere in New Mexico, which is overseen by Irene (CCH Pounder) and contains an interesting and quirky array of tenants: Uncle Willy (Dick Miller); the young and beautiful Jeryline (Jada Pinkett), who works like Cinderella as a chamber maid, never given any peace, always wanting out of the entire town; Cordelia (Brenda Bakke), a prostitute who looks after the lonely tenants and guests who pass through; Roach (Thomas Hayden Church), a young rocker, who has a thing going with Cordelia; Wally (Charles Fleischer), a mailman by day and desperately in love with Cordelia; and Wanda (Sherrie Rose) and Homer (Tim De Zarn). With the Collector not far behind, Brayker must use the boarding house as a fortress and all within must fight the Collector and his Demons in order to save not only their own lives, but the world. Other characters include Sheriff Tupper (John Schuck) and Deputy Bob Martel (Gary Farmer).
