Product Description

Madam Lilith (supermodel Angie Everhart) runs a very unusual bordello just on the edge of town. She and her girls are more than happy to serve, but beware, they'll bleed you dry...literally. Don't fret, wisecracking private eye Rafe Guttman (Dennis Miller) is hot on their trail. Before movie's end, Rafe will battle a den of luscious, scantily-clad vampiresses as well as crooked Reverend Current (Chris Sarandon), who holds the key to an all-powerful talisman.

Private eye Rafe Guttman (Dennis Miller) is hired by repressed, born-again Katherine (Erika Eleniak) to find her missing bad-boy brother. The trail leads him to a whorehouse run by a thousand-year-old vampire (Angie Everhart) and secretly backed by Katherine's boss, televangelist Jimmy Current (Chris Sarandon, wonderfully insincere and smarmy). Not for the squeamish or the easily offended (but you knew that from the title), Bordello of Blood is pulp horror as it should be--funny, fast, and full of gore. How many movies do you know where naked vampire hookers devour the still-beating hearts of their adolescent clients, or where the hero saves the day with a Super Soaker? Dennis Miller is at his wisecracking best as the oddest private eye since Elliot Gould played Philip Marlowe in The Long Goodbye. Angie Everhart devours her role with relish (yum!). And former Playboy Playmate Erika Eleniak seems to be enjoying the joke that in a movie filled with half-naked women, she's the only one who keeps her clothes on. --Geof Miller

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Time to throw out the very old dvd version which had no extras anyway
and buy this new blu-ray version courtesy of scream factory
a new HD transfer in 1:85:1 ratio has been given and the transfer looks excellent, very sharp & clear picture quality
much better quality than the old dvd version obviously
the sound quality has been boosted up to 5.1 master audio mix which sounds alot better than the old Dolby digital mix

being a scream factory release there's of course new special features, something universal would not bother with
new retrospective 35min featurette TAINTED BLOOD which is new interviews with writer & producer A.L. Katz
also new interviews with some of the cast as well, Corey Feldman, Angie everhart, Erika eleniak
second unit director Steven Lovejoy & special effects artist Todd masters
there's also a new commentary track with writer/producer A.L. Katz
also a small promo featurette filmed back in 1996 when this filmed was made
plus photo Stills Gallery & original theatrical trailer
so if you're big fan of Bordello of blood it's worth the cash to buy the new blu-ray version, not the very old dvd version
5 stars for this blu-ray based on a new HD transfer & new special features

I never understood why so many people hate this movie. Even Fangoria called it 'abysmal'. But I consider it a worthy follow-up to the delicious Demon Knight. It has brilliant acting: Dennis Miller is a treat as smartass private eye. Angie Everhart is not only the hottest female vampire in years, no, she even proves that she can actually act. Corey Feldman has one of his very few good roles. But who really chews the scenery is Chris Sarandon (Fright Night), one of the most underrated actors ever: His performance as a TV preacher alone makes this movie worth watching. Only Erika Eleniak is rather miscast. And watch out for Demon Knight veteran William Sadler (another underestimated actor) as mummy. The make-up F/X are not only unbelievably gory for an R-rated movie; they're so excellent they even surprise genre buffs who thought they've seen it all. The characters are wonderfully weird, and although there's loads of black humour in it, I'm glad Bordello of Blood never turns in a fun-splatter movie and still provides some chills. Even if you heard it's awful: Give it a try! It's more than just another vampire movie and has more imaginery than all those new teen horror films that Scream spawned together. I just hope there'll be a final part to the Tales from the Crypt full-length-feature trilogy.

This disk collects the two Tales From the Crypt movies on one side of a single disk. For some reason the menu has the second movie listed first.

In the first movie, Billy Zane is excellent as a demon looking for a final key so that the demons can retake the universe. This is the story of his battle with the current Demon Knight, the protector of the key. Wonderfully crafted and dark.

The second movie, Bordello of Blood, is a more tongue-in-cheek T&A-fest and lacks the dark seriousness of the first. Lilith, the queen of all vampires, has been awakened. She can be controlled by a key (the one from the first movie). She has set up a bordello to lure victims to her hunger. Dennis Miller is his wise-cracking self as he portrays a down-and-out private investigator looking for a missing person.

It is nice not to have to flip the disk over or insert a new disk but there is no room for real extras (we do get the original trailers). Seeing the two films together really showcases the extreme difference between the two. The first is dark, well-written and well-acted. The second is gratuitous, crass and just not quite as good (although it is fun in its own way). Now they are together at a reasonable price.

An entertaining double creature--er, that is, double feature inspired by TV's TALES FROM THE CRYPT (which was itself inspired by the identically titled, delightfully decadent EC Comics of the 1950s).

First on the bill is DEMON KNIGHT (1995). On the surface, this one's a typical tale of good-versus-evil, with a noble agent of Heaven working to protect mankind from an evil Demon who, with the help of his minions, seeks to throw a veil of darkness over the universe and oppress mankind in the process. Trite, yes, but a good script, a talented cast (including Billy Zane as the wonderfully smarmy Demon), and high production values raise this one a notch or two above the average morality play. The weakest element of the film is the Crypt-Keeper wraparound, which has too much of the TV show's cheesy feel (though it does feature an uncredited cameo by John Larroquette, whom hardcore genre fans know to be the opening narrator for 1974's original TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE). The story proper was drawn from a script originally written independently of the TV series--which is probably why it rises head and shoulders above it--and many of its elements read like a homage to George Romero's classic NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968) more than as an offspring of the series or the comics that inspired it.

The second feature is BORDELLO OF BLOOD (1996). Many fans and critics have panned this one as an bromidic and therefore unworthy follow-up to DEMON KNIGHT, and while it is true that many of the story elements are worn vampire-movie clichés, the film certainly delivers what having TALES FROM THE CRYPT in the title promises to genre fans.
