As for fans of Zane, if there was ever a film where the man breaks loose with his charm and enthusiasm, "Demon Knight" is his podium.

if the sight of Technicolor disembowelment and flying eyeballs ain't your cup of tea, there's always Terms of Endearment waiting down at the video store.

Pinkett, at least, went on to better things.

Good-humored gore, ably directed by Ernest Dickerson.

Pic is neither funny enough nor scary enough to be fully satisfying as either a shocker or a spoof.

The first in a series, but standards will need to impove if it's to survive.

Billy Zane's finest hour. Yeah, I know, that's depressing.

Between scenes of splattering gore in which severed heads literally roll across the floor, the movie has a good time spoofing itself and a gallery of mostly sleazy characters who confront a crew of blood-thirsty demons.

A big, dumb Night of the Living Dead rip-off with demons that convince you that Pumpkinhead must have reproduced. Fun junk.

Next time out, let's hope it involves a story that can stand on its own, without having to be propped up by the Crypt Keeper's silly patter.

The problem here is clearly the script, with very little that is original and amusing.

Appallingly straightforward horror fare.

The movie isn't particularly well-paced, and I found it dull.

I don't want to spoil what happens next, but can reveal that it involves: torn limbs, spurting gore, decapitations, eyeballs and guts spilled on the floor -- the standard gruesome stuff.

There's still a lot of filler in this chiller.

Good entertainment stretched to three times its natural length is rarely three times better, but bad entertainment dragged out that long will typically be three times worse.

Don't feel bad if you miss the first five minutes or have to leave for the last five because, not only are they completely expendable, but it's nothing you can't see every week in the comfort of your own living room.
