Ex-soldier Frank Brayker is the guardian of an ancient key that can unlock tremendous evil; the sinister Collector is a demon who wants the key so he can initiate the apocalypse. On the run from wicked mercenaries for almost 90 years, Brayker finally stops in at a boarding house in New Mexico where — with the help of its residents — he plans to face off against the Collector and his band of ghouls, preventing them from ever seizing the key.

Yeeeeeeaaaaaaah booooyyyyyyy. I have very fond memories of _Demon Knight_ from the days of the active horror community on Tumblr. I don't know if this is "good", but must a movie be "good"? Can we not simply have BIlly Zane wearing sunglasses in the dark, commanding his squad of practical effect demon puppets, and call it a day? Sidenote: I know this is a _Tales from the Crypt_ movie, but I would happily have given up the Cryptkeeper bookends for 5 more minutes of the actually story, silly as it is. _Final rating:★★★ - I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
