Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight

A cinema spin-off of the hit HBO TV-series and the EC comics, this has none of the originality nor the terror of the classic horror series. For those who care about the plot (there aren't too many of you, I'm sure), it involves a search for a key that will destroy the world, if it gets in the hands of a vicious demon (Billy Zane of The Phantom).

Lots of bloodletting and repellent violence, and yet, it's almost the perfect "so-bad-it's-good" movie: No logic, no stable plot, no character development. That about sums it up. This isn't even based on a particular episode from the comic book, like all the shows from the series are. The actors rack up some of the most dreadful acting I've seen in years. Zane is a wise-cracking, Freddy Kreuger wannabe.As for Billy! I've seen him perform in better days. Well, as the Crypt-keeper might say at times like this, be careful what you axe for kiddies!
