Based on an infamous comic book that started to revolutionize the view ondemon knight horror in America and was for a long period of time the only place where you can see something like that, Demon Knight excels in its trashy style. After a very successful television series, it was time for a movie. After Demon Knight came Bordello of Blood, a wobbly horror with a lot of nudity, gore and lame jokes. Ritual is the third and final movie in the Tales from the Crypt series and it was pretty good, so if you feel the thirst for more movies with the same vibe after the previous two, you know what to do.

Demon Knights and Demons fighting for a key that will bring mankind to eternal darkness is the basic story. Two adversaries meet in an old motel that is, as always, filled with colorful and diverse characters. Still one dimensional but very expressive and exactly because of this we could relate to characters. Billy Zane was phenomenal here with his chilled and determined performance. I remember seeing the fragment of the flick in the nineties and the only thing I could remember about it is that it was cool and had some door sealed with blood thing in it. And, I was not wrong. With the whole nineties vibe going on, Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight will take on journey that will be fun and interesting with some really good gore in it. Enjoy…
