Format: DVD
While the first film was a solid, self-contained horror flick with a touch of humor and a fair amount of sophistication and imagination, Bordello of Blood falls apart under poor direction and a far too free-spirited nature. While it is a failure as a sequel it manages to entertain only as a brainless timewaster.
Dennis Miller does his best with the weak material and ad-libs a lot of humor. A little too much, taking the film even further from it's already vague ambitions. But worry not, his humor is still free and easy, unlike his cryptic (no pun intended) football commentaries. Erika Eleniak is marginally engaging and Corey Feldman is well underused. The weakest performances come from Angie Everhart as the ancient vampire Lillith and Chris Sarandon as the outrageously stereotyped southern TV evangelist. It's these performances that keep the film eternally low brow.
It's sad that Tales from the Crypt totally died after this movie but the powers behind it went on to found the Dark Castle production company (check out those movies they're actually quite scary and effective).
This new version of Bordello of Blood is by Universal and is presented in it's proper aspect ratio of 1.85:1 anamorphic and is in Dolby 5.1. The cheapo snapper case has been replaced by a sturdy keepcase and a new cover art. The only new extra is a trailer.

Bordello of Blood is the second Tales From the Crypt movie, and I found it very enjoyable.
Unlike the first movie (Demon Knight) this movie did not start out with the television show's opening. It opened more like a movie than an extra long episode.
Bordello of Blood is the story of a down-on-his-luck private investigator (Dennis Miller) looking for a missing teenager. The search leads him to a funeral home that is a front for a bordello run by vampires. Miller's client tells him to drop the case but he really needs the case to succeed if he is going to get his license back. Miller investigates and plays a very savvy investigator who doesn't fall for anyone's lines and is not surprised by what he finds. Added to this is television evangelism, the lore of vampires and their origin, and the key from the first movie.
The action is similar to the series with the same tongue-in-cheek humor (possibly even more so). I particularly liked the investigator's resourcefulness in eliminating the vampires (a long-range, large-capacity squirt gun filled with holy water) and the vampire applying the SPF100 sun block.
If you like Tales From the Crypt, there is no reason you will not like this one.

When a Private Investigator (Dennis Miller) is hire by a church-going, sexy concerned sister (Erika Eleniak) to find her bad-assed brother (Corey Feldman) the case turns into a bloodbath. When they finally find her brother he is found in a local mortuary which tends to have funerals in the mornings and a whorehouse at night. The whorehouse is run by a vampire (Angie Everheart) whose over 1,000 years old. Full of comedy, gore and (of course) sex, Bordello of Blood is very satisfying and has the ability to entertain multiple viewings. The film also co-stars Chris Sarandon. The DVD isn't much. It only have a Theatrical Trailer.

The second (but hopefully not last) Tales From the Crypt film, Bordello of Blood is as nasty as it's title implies. Full of scantily clad vampire women and loaded with a surprising amount of gore for an R-rated movie, this film is pure trashy horror fun with comedian Dennis Miller playing a private eye who stumbles upon a bordello full of vampires being funded by an evangilist (Chris Sarandon). Plenty of toungue-in-cheek dark humor, hot babes, and wild gore; Bordello of Blood doesn't hit the same greatness as Demon Knight, but it doesn't try to either. Also featuring Erika Eleniak, Corey Feldman, and Angie Everhart as the mouthwatering vampire master.

As a fan of both the HBO series and the general horror genre, I can say without a doubt that "Bordello of Blood" is THE WORST movie I've seen thus far. Not only is the script more poorly written than in "Demon Knight," but even the gory effects appeared fake. Basically, Corey Feldman plays a rebellious heavy metal freak named Caleb who (along with his drunken friends) enter the McCutcheon mortuary for one purpose: to have a good, dirty time with XXX prostitutes in a single night of sex and alcohol. However, these bare naked girls turn out to be a coven of ravenous, lustful vampires who want to eat the boys' hearts out...literally! And, of course, they are all led by Lilith (Angie Everhart), the most bloodthirsty Madam from Hell.
Later on, Dennis Miller steps into the picture as Rafe Guttman, a mumbling detective who is hired to investigate Caleb's disappearance. Rafe is given the assignment by Caleb's virginal sister Katherine (Erika Eleniak), who couldn't get any aid from the police because they won't take her seriously. Meanwhile, Katherine herself provides spiritual support to Reverend Current (Chris Sarandon), a televangelist who regularly broadcasts from his own high-tech, crystal cathedral (the robotic Devil was a nice touch, by the way!) Then, of course, it's discovered that the Reverend isn't as righteous as he pretends to be, since HE was responsible for financially supporting Lilith's resurrection (all for the Lord's work, no doubt!) As Rafe gets closer to solving his case, he's repeatedly seduced by Lilith's obscene charms, and soon it's up to him to kill all of the vampires and destroy the bordello.
I'm sure "Bordello of Blood" will be a cinematic pleaser for anyone wanting to see mindless violence and sleaze.
