Flawed film that fails. The largest problem I had with this movie was the fact it seemed to have no clue what it was trying to do. It's a horror comedy where the majority of the humor comes from Dennis Miller's character (who isn't acting only playing himself for the most part). This movie is really disjointed and filled with numerous moments that fail badly. The mix of humor and horror is off.

"I never understood why so many people hate this movie. Even Fangoria called it 'abysmal'. But I consider it a worthy follow-up to the delicious Demon Knight. It has brilliant acting: Dennis Miller is a treat as smartass private eye. Angie Everhart is not only the hottest female vampire in years, no, she even proves that she can actually act. Corey Feldman has one of his very few good roles. But who really chews the scenery is Chris Sarandon (Fright Night), one of the most underrated actors ever: His performance as a TV preacher alone makes this movie worth watching. Only Erika Eleniak is rather miscast. And watch out for Demon Knight veteran William Sadler (another underestimated actor) as mummy. The make-up F/X are not only unbelievably gory for an R-rated movie; they're so excellent they even surprise genre buffs who thought they've seen it all. The characters are wonderfully weird, and although there's loads of black humour in it, I'm glad Bordello of Blood never turns in a fun-splatter movie and still provides some chills. Even if you heard it's awful: Give it a try! It's more than just another vampire movie and has more imaginery than all those new teen horror films that Scream spawned together. I just hope there'll be a final part to the Tales from the Crypt full-length-feature trilogy."

"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."
Come to this bordello and get wicked !

"I hate all kinds of critics,especially movie critics(amateur and professional ones).They are really frustrated people as well as party-poopers!Don't pay attention to the bad reviews you may come across here.This movie is one of the best horror flicks I've ever seen.There's comedy/black humor,blood,guts,great special effects and great acting - all in one helluva story.The plot: After 10 long years a Tomb Raider finds Lilith-he mother of all vampires.He knows that he who resurrects Lilith can control her.Of course all he wants is money,prestige and power.The brothel is just a cover-up for underhanded schemes to get what he desires,and for Lilith to get what she needs : blood.Now, if you want further info watch this.I've never been to a brothel in my life,but I'm sure it's not as fun as this film is !"
"Let me first start this off by saying any movie with Corey Feldman in it will automatically lose one star from me. That done let me repair that by saying any film with Erika Eleniak in it will receive one bonus star.Tales From the Crypt's second feature is little more than a campy vampire tale. It is the tale of the Queen of the vampires 'Lillith' (erotically portrayed by the best looking redhead in film, Angie Everhart).Dennis Miller, is his wise cracking self throughout this movie. I wondered whether there was a script or not for him, as he just kid of flows through the film with jokes in every second line..perhaps he adlibbed the whole thing. Well, his character is a hardluck P.I. whom happens across a lovely lady in distress, the ever so religious Erika Eleniak.Eleniak's brother (Feldman) is missing. The cops are too overworked between meals so she decides to hire Miller. He finds out that her brother went to a vampire whorehouse. Chris Sarandon who played a T.V. Reverend in this movie plays a confusing character to me. Sometimes he seems the Swaggarty Bakerish type of corrupt evangelist, sometimes he seems like a crusader for God. Hard to tell. Regardless he didn't have a major role in the film.There is plenty of nudity in the film, and combined with Miller's and Everhart's (who looks gorgeous did I mention that...but could not tell a joke and act well) wisecracking made it a pretty campy affair. With all the nudity, they couldn't have shown it from one of the major stars like Eleniak or Everhart?? Come on Cryptkeeper get with it! It surprised me the way the Tales From the Crypt people have gone, especially after Demon Knight.The DVD itself has nothing extra just like Demon Knight's. No extra audio tracks, no commentary, no features whatsoever. There is a chapter selection.It was cute seeing William Sadler return for a cameo."
