Tales from the Crypt Presents: Bordello of Blood (1996) Revisited – Horror Movie Review

The new episode of the Best Horror Party Movies video series looks back at Tales from the Crypt Presents: Bordello of Blood

It’s time for a new episode of our Best Horror Party Movies video series, and with this one we’re looking back at a movie that was widely considered to be a disappointment when it was first released back in 1996 – Tales from the Crypt Presents: Bordello of Blood (watch it HERE). But while Bordello of Blood may be a step down from its predecessor, Tales from the Crypt Presents: Demon Knight, and it may pale in comparison to the similar From Dusk Till Dawn, which was released around the same time, it’s still a movie you can party to. And to find out how we party to Bordello of Blood, check out the video embedded above!

Directed by Gilbert Adler, who wrote the screenplay with A.L. Katz (with Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis receiving story credit), Tales from the Crypt Presents: Bordello of Blood has the following synopsis: After her troublemaking brother, Caleb, goes missing, Katherine Verdoux seeks the services of sarcastic private investigator Rafe Guttman to track the errant youth down. Rafe eventually determines that Caleb is in the thrall of Lilith, a powerful vampire who operates a seedy brothel. When Rafe and Katherine set out to rescue Caleb, they must contend with the lethal Lilith and her evil minions.

The film stars Erika Eleniak, Dennis Miller, Angie Everhart, Corey Feldman, Chris Sarandon, and Phil Fondacaro.

Here’s what the Best Horror Party Movies series is all about: Welcome to the Best Horror Party Movies where we single out the BEST horror movies to watch with a couple of drinks and some buddies in tow, even if it’s a “watch party”. Hence movies that are intentionally or unintentionally funny, that are extreme, fast paced, goofy, and raunchy – all the fun times toppings in the house! Films you can pay attention to or you can have in the back ground. We even tossed a party game in there, one tailored to each episode’s selection, including recommended “doses” for toasting (or roasting) all the sleaze, cheese, guts and gore you can stuff into your cranium. So get in here and get crazy… ‘cuz it’s a HORROR PARTY!

The Bordello of Blood episode of Best Horror Party Movies was Written, Narrated/Hosted, and Edited by Mike Conway, Produced by John Fallon, and Executive Produced by Berge Garabedian.
