Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight (1995) – The Best Scene

In a new video, JoBlo’s Lance Vlcek picks the best scene from the 1995 film Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight

After taking a look back at House II: The Second Story (a favorite of mine since childhood) and House of 1000 Corpses (which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year), JoBlo’s own Lance Vlcek continues his The Best Scene video series by digging into what he feels is the best scene from the 1995 classic Tales from the Crypt Presents: Demon Knight (watch it HERE). Lance’s choice for the best scene in this one is the scene where Billy Zane’s character The Collector gives up his cowboy disguise and reveals his true nature. You can hear all about it in the video embedded above!

Directed by Ernest Dickerson from a screenplay written by Mark Bishop, Ethan Reiff, and Cyrus Voris, Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight has the following synopsis: Ex-soldier Frank Brayker is the guardian of an ancient key that can unlock tremendous evil; the sinister but charming 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 quirky residents — he plans to face off against the Collector and his band of ghouls, preventing them from ever seizing the key.

Zane is joined in the cast by William Sadler, Jada Pinkett (before the Smith), Brenda Bakke, C. C. H. Pounder, Thomas Haden Church, Dick Miller, Gary Farmer, Ryan O’Donohue, Charles Fleischer, John Schuck, Sherrie Rose, Tim DeZarn, Peggy Trentini, and John Larroquette, with John Kassir providing the voice of Tales from the Crypt’s iconic host The Crypt Keeper.
