October Horror Movie Challenge - Tales From The Crypt Presents: Demon Knight (1995)


A drifter with a divine mission to protect humanity seeks refuge in a desolate hotel. There he and the misfits that live there must survive a night of demonic horror.


This flick is an underrated classic. The cast is phenomenal. Jada Pinkett is wonderful as the unlikely heroine, William Sadler's Brayker is fantastic, and Billy Zane's demonic Collector is the epitome of over the top villain. Thomas Hayden Church, Dick Miller, and CCH Pound are all great in supporting rolls. I love the last stand at the Alamo nature of the plot and the take on Christianity it has. The nuclear green demonic aesthetic is great too, which makes me think of Re-Animator. Of course, like any good Tales from the Crypt story, the story is bookended perfectly by the Crypt Keeper.

If you haven't watched this one, you should definitely check it out.
