A mysterious drifter known as Frank Brayker [William Sadler of ‘Iron Man 3’] possesses the last of seven ancient keys that hold the power to stop the forces of darkness and protect all humanity from ultimate evil. But the human race is safe only so long as Fank Brayker can evade the demonic “The Collector” [Billy Zane of ‘TITANIC’] who has gathered the other six keys.
In his obsessive quest for the key, “The Collector” rallies an army of ghastly cadavers against Frank Brayker and the inhabitants of a run-down hotel. Armed with automatic weapons, sacred blood and sadistic humour, Frank Brayker and the strong-willed Jeryline [Jada Pinkett-Smith of ‘GOTHAM’] must lead the other guests in a gruesome battle against The Collector and his evil horde of ghouls.
Infested with a talented cast, thrilling special effects and the Crypt Keeper’s deadpan delights, ‘DEMON KNIGHT’ is directed by genre vet Ernest R. Dickerson [‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Dexter,’ and ‘Masters of Horror’] and features a strong supporting cast featuring Thomas Haden Church [‘Spider-Man 3’ and ‘Sideways’], CCH Pounder [‘Bagdad Café,’ ORHAN’ and ‘AVATAR’], Brenda Bakke [‘L.A. Confidential’], Dick Miller [‘GREMLINS’] and Charles Fleischer [‘ZODIAC’].Read more ›
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 ›
