Overview

Previously published in the 1950s as a comic book, Tales From the Crypt soon made its way to cable television in the early '90s starring famous actors and directed by top-notch talent. The second in a planned series of movies, Tales From the Crypt Presents: Bordello of Blood is featured as a bare-bones disc courtesy of Image Entertainment (originally produced and distributed by Universal). Starring comedian Dennis Miller and supermodel Angie Everhart, this 1.85:1 anamorphic transfer looks excellent. Colors and detail are very sharp and clean, with black levels looking especially solid. Edge enhancement is kept to a minimum, and neither digital artifacting nor shimmer are spotted throughout the feature. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 and sounds very good. The surround feature is often used aggressively during action or gore sequences, and neither dialogue nor effects suffer from any hiss or distortion. For a smaller horror title, Tales From the Crypt Presents: Bordello of Blood features a well-mixed 5.1 audio track. Sadly, with a superb transfer and a well-mixed audio track, apparently something had to suffer -- on this disc, it's the supplemental features. Image Entertainment made the decision to leave out all extra features, even a measly theatrical trailer. Fans of Tales From the Crypt Presents: Bordello of Blood will be looking for blood due to this travesty, but should be placated by the nicely produced audio and video portions of the disc.In this satirical horror-comedy, a gumshoe investigates a combination TV ministry/whorehouse/vampire infestation. After bounty hunter Vincent (Phil Fondacaro) unearths the remains of Lilith, queen of the vampires, he restores the alluring creature to life and lords over her using a magical talisman. Later, rowdy youngster Caleb Verdoux (Corey Feldman) convinces one of his dim-witted buddies to accompany him to a combination mortuary/house of ill repute where both young men fall prey to Lilith's charms. Rather than merely drinking her victims' blood, this vampire has a tendency to rip out their hearts with her projectile tongue. Caleb's sister, Katherine (Erika Eleniak), who works for a large televangelism operation run by the shady Reverend Current (Chris Sarandon), hires private dick Rafe Guttman (Dennis Miller) to track down the errant Caleb. Rafe's wise-guy antics soon get him in trouble with Lilith and the law, but not before he uncovers the ties between Lilith's organization and Current's ministry; it seems Vincent, and therefore Lilith, are working for the reverend. Soon, Rafe finds himself in the boudoir of Lilith's bordello, armed with a holy-water squirt gun and fighting to save Erika from the glamorous but deadly vampire. Like Tales From the Crypt Presents Demon Knight, the previous film spin-off from HBO's EC Comics-inspired Tales From the Crypt series, Bordello of Blood features interludes hosted by the puppet skeleton known as the Crypt Keeper (voice of John Kassir). Director Gilbert Adler, who previously helmed Demon Knight, would go on to produce 13 Ghosts and The House on Haunted Hill. Whoopi Goldberg makes an uncredited cameo as a hospital patient.
