Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight (1995) – Comic Book Based Horror That Stays Entertaining

I’m not sure why I hadn’t seen this movie before last night, as I was a fan of the Tales From the Crypt comic book and TV show, and was aware that this movie existed. Oh Well, I watched it, finally.

The story is this: there is a man being chased by Billy Zane who is either a demon or the Devil himself. Zane’s character is trying to get the seventh and final “key” that would release the demons of Hell onto Earth en mass. That key is a bottle that contains blood of certain people (starting with the blood of Christ) that are chosen to keep it, and the world safe from the evil trying to escape hell. The holder of this key/blood bottle is imbued with powers, add the blood itself can be used to destroy and to protect. 

In this movie, the most recent keeper, pursued by Zane’s character holes up in an old church converted to a hotel/hostel. Followed there, the keeper tries to protect a group that really doesn’t understand that they are really in trouble. Eventually, they figure out that the danger is real – especially when Zane punched THROUGH the head of the sheriff.

So, this movie is definitely cheezy. Heck it’s really cheezy. Who cares, though, as this is a really fun horror movie. Not an award winner in any way, shape or form, but fun.

Dredd (2012) – So… This is a Movie

I watched the new Judge Dredd movie, Dredd, a couple of nights ago and have this to say: Yeah, this is a Judge Dredd Movie.

For the most part, I think that’s all that really needs to be said, but for the sake of the blog I’ll write a bit more.

Did you see the original Judge Dredd movie starring Sylvester Stalone? Well, that one had more going on than this movie. I’m not saying it was better – it wasn’t – but there was more going on. The story of this movie? Who cares. It’s a dark action movie with some entertaining gunfight and explosions, characters that I just couldn’t care less about. It’s not a bad movie, it’s just a movie I could take or leave.

This is a movie. Watch it if you like.

Here’s the trailer:


Creepshow (1982) – Comic Book Horror From the 1980s!

1982’s Creepshow is a homage to the old 1950s  E.C. comics of the same name. For years E.C. comics brought horror to the imaginations of the youth through their Creepshow comic. This movie brings that comic creepy-fun to the big screen.

George A. Romero and Stephen King bring five tales of terror to the screen with many big (at least for 1982) stars. This movies is a wild, fun ride through the horror genre with a little bit for everyone. See a jealous husband (played by Leslie Nielsen) get revenge on his wife and her lover… just to see the tables reversed soon after. Or maybe you’s rather see a hen packed husband (played by Hal Holbrook), help a friends with a sticky situation while taking care of his alcoholic, abusive wife (played by Adrienne Barbeau). Or maybe a hillbilly (played by Stephen King) that turns to a weird plant/animal after messing with a meteor that that falls in his back yard. Like I said, there’s enough for everyone here.

For younger fans of horror, I am sure this is going to come across as pretty cheezy- hey, get over it! This movie is about classic comic book horror, and if you can’t get your head around that then it just wouldn’t be for you any way. Thay said, this is a fun ride that I think you should take!
