A Totally Spectacular And Highly Underrated Horror FiIm!,
This review is from: Tales From Crypt: Demon Knight [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Note: ...Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight,is an unbelieveablyawesome horror movie based on the ultra-popular and highly sucessful TV series,Tales From The Crypt.It's quite possibly one of the greatest horror movies ever.It was funny,scary,and most importantly,very very entertaining.Don't expect it to be like Creepshow and Tales From The Darkside: The Movie.It's a brand new tale from the decomposing dude,The Crypt Keeper. This is just wonderful.I can go on how awesome this movie is, but I'll talk about it's best features.The special F/X are absolutely fantastic.The Crypt Keeper looks hideously ugly and really scares...me.Seriously,he does! I'm sure he'll freak you out too! The Demons were terrific.Never mind those Behemoths with Horns sticking from their heads,red skin and fur,Goat legs,Arrow shaped tale,and Trident. These are totally cool Demons.They look REAL freaky. These suckers are the monsters that give our kids their horrifying Nightmares.About 95% of the F/X in TFTC: DK are puppetry and guys in suits.Their are VERY few CGI F/X,but the puppetry is totally awesome.The finale is great too.But don't think that TFTC: DK is one of those flicks that has "All Effects,No Movie".It has F/X AND has SO Much More! The cast is splendid,as is the acting.Billy Zane was absolutely devilish as The Collector and William Sadler was perfect for Brayker,the Hero of DK.Jon Kassir was brilliant at voicing The Crypt Keeper.Besides being unbelieveably ugly,The Crypt Keeper has a voice that'll make you mute the TV.Dick Miller was also wonderful as Uncle Willy. The photography and lighting were done perfectly and flawlessly. The film threw every Hellish twist in the Book at you and never failed.The music is also excellent and fits in perfectly and plays in just the right spots.The direction from Dickerson is totally superb and is extremely accurate. In short,Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight,is an excellent and VERY underrated horror movie that's one of the best horror flicks of the '90s and is true to the genre. It made me laugh,made me cry,made me scared,and entertained me like I couldn't believe.If your a gorehound,you'll love this one! Decaptations,Dismemberment,and Blood Sucking galore make this a HUGE favorite amongst gore lovers.DK is very much like the horror film,Evil Dead.Evil Dead had some of the most memorable and grossest gore scenes in the History of Holloywood,and so does this! Overall,if you love the Tales From The Crypt TV show,are a big Evil Dead fan,and/or want to see a true horror film,this is for you!
Oh,and I saw the sequel,Bordello Of Blood,but it was 9/10ths empty.It didn't stand a chance against this.
