    Tales From the Crypt Presents 'Demon Knight' was awesome fun. Even better than I remembered it (having only seen it once about 10 years ago).

    I wish William Sadler had developed a stronger career, because he's quite a good leading man, especially for the anti-hero role he has here.

    If the "Dark Tower" series had gone into production 10 years ago, I'd say he should have played Roland. Especially with his ties to Stephen King material already strong at that point, it would have given it another bit of the meta-ness that was so integral to the "Dark Tower" books.
    I FUCKIN LOVE THIS MOVIE. I seriously do. Billy Zane is great in it! My favorite scene is;

    Are we ever gonna see any more Tales from the Crypt?

    Was Bordello of Blood the last of it? I didn't think that movie was as good as Demon Knight, but I still love Dennis Miller's wit and I still sit through the whole movie if it's on HBO.

    That Friday the 13th 3D sucks ass, dude. It started to give me a headache after a while. I haven't even been able to sit through the 3D movie front-to-back. The ghosting is terrible. It's embarrassing after you see what they managed to do with Coraline and even My Bloody Valentine.
    Damn. I may warn him about this. Or, we'll go ahead anyways and find out for ourselves. Either way, I'll take your post into account.

    William Sadler is awesome, yes. I haven't seen Demon Knight but he was great in Die Hard 2. He usually plays the heavy in most of his movies.

    I hope so, but I also doubt it.

    Bordello of Blood tanked both financially and critically. That, teamed with the show's cancellation, pretty much spelled out the end for it.

    But hey, with the recent resurgence in vampire popularity, maybe we'll get another vampire-themed Tales from the Crypt movie in the next couple of years. Unlikely, but I can always hope...

    I still think the HBO show is among the greatest TV shows of all time. Sets the benchmark for the mixture of horror and comedy.

    Indeed. He's also got a lot of shades to him, as he can play a clueless twit (Shawshank), a cruel heavy (Die Hard 2), and a Bergman-esque Death (Bogus Journey)...and they all work wonderfully.

    Demon Knight is fun, no doubt about it, but I kinda wish it'd stayed a little closer to its inspirations. There's almost nothing there that's similar to the EC Comics of yore, save the Cryptkeeper. Then again, they might've already exhausted that well with the TV show.

    Regardless, any film that lets Dick Miller get seduced by a bunch of nubile women gets the a-okay from me.

    IGN's [REC] 2 review is very positive.

    Can't wait to see this one.

    They mention "...a particularly terrifying shot, which occurs at the very end of the film, is one that [I'll] be trying to shake out of my brain for weeks."

    That has my interest peaked, since the first had some similarly chilling imagery near the end.

    Also, a question for Duke -- spoiler the killer in Sorority Row, please. If you have to explain it, please do. I will not be seeing it any time soon.

    And, from the random trivia front, Miller also played a character named Walter Paisley in five other films, including The Howling, Twilight Zone: The Movie, and Chopping Mall.

    And, Sadler rules. Along with the above mentioned roles, I thought he did a great job with his pivotal role in The Mist. Helped sell the whole movie for me.

    Chopping Mall? What the hell is -- OH! You mean KILLBOTS!!!



    Love that piece of 80s cheese. Glad it doesn't take itself seriously. It never would've worked if it had.

    I don't know if Mike mixed up some pronouns there or something, but that didn't make much sense.

    Had a kick-start to my month of October tonight, while compiling all the horrors I hope to watch in October. Re-watched Night of the Demons, which is stupid but kinda fun, and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, which I want to love despite how goddamn over-the-top-dramatic it is, leading to problems in tone and pace. It got close, but I'll stick with Karloff.

    Yep, that makes a lot more sense.

    Sounds terrible, too.

    Glad to see you liked these ones. Also, the more I view Caligari, the more I love it.

    Final Destination (2000) 3
    I'm curious to hear your thoughts about this one. I think it's the best post-Scream "slasher" movie, even if it's not really one.

    FRONTIERS

    There's a smidge of political subtext in this extreme French thriller, but it otherwise traffics in that most unfortunate of current horror trends: replacing suspense and fright with the nadir of human behavior. The story follows a small group of homophobic, childish assholes out of a rioting French city...and into a nightmare so awful it recalls Texas Chainsaw. Well, in fairness, it doesn't just recall TCM - it plays like a greatest hits version of that film, complete with friend-stuck-on-hook, demented-grandfather, perverse-family-banquet, screaming-female-survivor, and the requisite cannibalism. Even worse is a scene that either doesn't know it's directly ripping off Misery or simply doesn't care. But even ignoring the enormously derivative story, Xavier Gans's picture has little to offer besides yet another slog through the boundless potential of human cruelty. Put it this way - if you like seeing a pregnant woman get her face kicked in three times, punched in four times, and slammed onto a dashboard while a demented neo-Nazi screams at her, spittle flying through the air like machine gun bullets, then hey - this Bud's for you.

    C-

    PS: After failing to enjoy this film, Martyrs, High Tension, and Them, I've done the prudent thing and removed Inside from my Netflix queue. Crazy Frenchmen.

    Tales From the Crypt Presents 'Bordello of Blood' is actually, well, kind of OK.

    It's not up to the standards of the show or even the previous movie, but it's certainly not terrible.

    I could have done without Corey Feldman, but that goes for anything he's in.

    And Angie Everhart is freaking gorgeous, but couldn't act her way out of a wet paper bag. It was kind of painful, actually.

    Dennis Miller has some good lines, though. His sarcastic condescension suited the character well.

    Some great gore effects, as well.

    I just saw the following comment on another board:

    PSYCHO remake>>>NOSFERATU remake
    And a large part of me died. Violently.

    What's so irritating is that this is, like, objectively wrong.
