Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight

Ernest Dickerson (1995)

18 Certificate


Our Score
Not an anthology in the fondly remembered tradition of Amicus, the company that brought us the original Tales from the Crypt, just one duff story ripped off from Night of the Living Dead. Billy Zane is the evil force who hounds an assortment of misfits trapped in a Texas motel in his search for an ancient talisman containing the blood of Jesus Christ. Crude sight gags and slimy schlock are accented over mordant humour in director Ernest R Dickerson's eager-to-please but flimsy fright-fest.


A mysterious renegade defends a mixed bunch of boarding house residents from the forces of darkness. Chilling thriller based on the cult TV series, starring Billy Zane, William Sadler, Jada Pinkett Smith and CCH Pounder.
