      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Bordello of Blood is not as scary or funny as it thinks it is (or should've been), and all of Dennis Miller's lines sound like castoffs from his stand-up material.

      Sonny Z I loved this movie! Dennis Miller's wisecracks are great and naked girls don't hurt either! It's Tales From The Crypt so when you go into this knowing it's going to be campy, then you're bound to have a good time. It's a fun movie with some easy laughs. It's a shame they don't make fun movies anymore. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/23/23 Full Review Steve D Not great but fun enough for fans. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member I love it and it have bad ending but I like ending song big 👍👍 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member "He just radiates with Christ-like glow." Dennis Miller ("Joe Dirt"), a P.I. hired to locate Corey Feldman ("Gremlins", "Goonies", "The 'Burbs"), tracks down Michael Jackson's/Charlie Sheen's favourite plaything to a whorehouse operated by a vampiress named Lilith played by ginger Angie Everhart ("Last Action Hero"). To defeat the Satanic madam, the detective stakes out the brothel only to discover a megachurch pastor Chris Sarandon ("The Princess Bride", "Fright Night", "Child's Play", "The Resurrected") behind the entire operation. Soon the man-of-the-cloth realizes he cannot control the pestiferous procurer, so he teams with the witty private investigator in order to defeat the vile temptress. Funny, creepy, pervy, as you'd expect in a "Tales From the Crypt" script; the comedic horror host, the Crypt-Keeper, bookends this outing with his typical gag-filled irreverent commentary and is joined by mummy William Sadler ("Freaked", "Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey", "The Green Mile", "The Shawshank Redemption") which results in humourous banter. The film commences with an Indiana-Jones-style portion that feels a bit tacked on, yet acts to loosely connect this, the second feature-length based on the long-running EC Comics/HBO line, with the previous film in the series, "Demon Knight." Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review robert p How can someone who produced Demon Knight, which is pretty good, but this movie stinks! Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member i mean... you've got to know what you're going into before you start watching, lol. comparatively it's not a good movie, but i grew up watching Tales from the Crypt & Goosebumps... what nostalgia. it's a fun watch if you're in the mood.

      Joe Leydon Variety Adolescent boys might groove to the mix, but most other ticketbuyers will avoid this tawdry opus like the plague. May 19, 2008 Full Review Richard Harrington Washington Post Triple the length of its cable television inspiration, Tales From the Crypt Presents Bordello of Blood is triple the gore, triple the naked women, but not, alas, triple the fun. Jan 22, 2002 Full Review Jack Mathews Los Angeles Times What it lacks in irony and suspense, Gilbert Adler's Tales From the Crypt Presents Bordello of Blood makes up for in whimsy and cheeky self-assurance. Rated: 3/5 Feb 21, 2001 Full Review Patrick Cavanaugh The Wolfman Cometh A largely forgettable experience that fails to live up to the Tales from the Crypt name. Rated: 2/5 Sep 22, 2023 Full Review Mal Vincent The Virginian-Pilot It's pretty lame most of the way, but interspersed with authentically humorous references. Rated: 2/4 Mar 10, 2022 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins The bloodshed, though graphic, is thoroughly creative, utilizing fake appendages and prosthetics - and other mutilative yucks - for successful outrageousness. Rated: 6/10 Sep 10, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
