Movie synopsis
The Collector, a mysterious force of evil, hungers for possession of a key that will give him access to the monsters of Hell. But he cannot get the precious object away from Brayker, the key's guardian. The two begin an apocalyptic struggle, as The Collector summons carnivorous demons and orders them to destroy any obstacles to the key. But the key has provided Brayker with a magical talisman to keep him safe: the sacred blood of Jesus Christ. However, this power begins to weaken with time, and Brayker must come up with another form of protection... or else his flesh will be dessert.

Editorial reviews

"...A big-budget gore movie that actually delivers the low-budget goods....Consistently fun." -- Rating: A-
Entertainment Weekly - J.R. Taylor (07/21/1995)

"...A fang-in-cheek horror thriller that likely will please fans....Zane takes top acting honors, playing the Collector with a winning mix of insinuating menace and smart-alecky flamboyance..."
Variety - Joe Leydon (01/16/1995)

"...Zane is wittily seductive..."
Los Angeles Times - David Kronke (01/13/1995)

"...Full-throttle direction makes for fitful,�frightful�fun..."
USA Today - Susan Wloszczyna (02/03/1995)

"...The movie has a good time spoofing itself....With a look and tone that bring a comic-book's broad strokes into the realm of a live-action movie....The movie wears a phosphorescent grin..."
New York Times - Stephen Holden (01/13/1995)

A must have Classic

Review For: Tales from the Crypt - Demon Knight (DVD, 2003)

I was a big fan of the Tales from the Crypt TV show. Thus, I am a big fan of this movie. It feels a lot like one of the Creepshow movies but has enough gore, humor and OTT carnage to make it stand on it's own as well as being a big screen spin-off. 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) 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 seem like a cheap, horror comedy with no artistic integrity but Dickerson successfully pulls of a movie that will satisfy and entertain anyone who watches it.

Of course 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 formidable villain for Sadler's dishevelled hero.

They should make more Tales From The Crypt movies, but producer's Robert Zemeckis, Gilbert Adler and Joel Silver (Walter Hill and David Giler ducked out) went on to found Dark Castle, the production company behind House on Haunted Hill, Thir13en Ghosts and Ghost Ship.

The new DVD by Universal is better than the old one from Image. This time be get the film in it's proper aspect ratio of 1.85:1 anamorphic with a Dolby 5.1 soundtrack. The old snapper case is gone and in it's place is a sturdy keep case. Demon Knight is definitely one to get.

Great Crypt Keepers Ghost!

Review For: Tales from the Crypt - Demon Knight (DVD, 2003)

This is a harder to find move made a few years back. It has everyones much loved HBO late night host The Crypt Keeper as the stories teller so to speak. A wonderful movie about supernatural creatures, good vs. evil and heaven vs. hell. Any fans of the Tales from the Crypt should own this in thier collection.

Billy Zane, the best demon ever.

Review For: Tales from the Crypt - Demon Knight (DVD, 2003)

I'm a horror movie fan and of course a comedy fan. So I got both in one movie with Demon Knight. While the script or story line itself has some holes in it, for the most part it it is sarcastically clever and Billy Zane is a delight to watch on screen (for....more than his acting too.)

Demon Knight Review

Review For: Tales from the Crypt - Demon Knight (DVD, 2003)

I bought this movie because I'm a huge Tales From The Crypt fan. The movie was as gruesome as expected. There were no dislikes. If you really are a fan of the TV series, then this is a must have movie. Just like the series, it has comedy and gruesome horror scenes. I loved it from start to finish.
