Movie Review: "Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight" (1995)

Image Source
Movie: "Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight"
Director: Ernest R. Dickerson
Year: 1995
Rating: R
Running Time: 1 hour, 32 minutes

A man named Brayker (William Sadler) is on the run from a demon masquerading as a human, called The Collector (Billy Zane ZOMG). Brayker is protecting a seal from The Collector which contains the blood of Jesus. He tries to hide in a seedy hotel in a small town with a varying cast of townspeople, who are now under the threat of a demon attack. The Collector must get his hands on the seal in order to bring about the apocalypse.

In the off chance that you're reading this, I LUV U BILLY ZANE.

In typical "Tales from the Crypt" fashion, this movie combines comedy and horror to create a fun movie experience. It's a gore-driven, enjoyable movie filled with blood-splatters, demons, popping goo, and...Jada Pinkett-Smith??? It boasts a solid cast and a pretty decent story overall. The makeup work on the demons in this movie is actually very well done, though some of the computer driven effects are mediocre. All in all, we'd catch another "Tales from the Crypt" movie if it was on based on this viewing experience alone!

My Rating: 6/10
BigJ's Rating: 7/10
IMDB's Rating: 6.5/10
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 32%
Do we recommend this movie: Sure, why not?
