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] ) 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.Read more ›
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).Read more ›
