"Demon Knight" was a script that had been circulating in Hollywood for a number of years. Although it wasn't adapted from E.C. Comics and lacked the standard morality play, the producers decided it had the right mixture of horror and humor to be produced as a Tales from the Crypt (1989) spin-off movie. See more »
Jeryline coats herself in Braker's blood to prevent The Collector from touching her and her underwear is stained to the point that it is nearly black. The Collector responds by throwing her in the shower to rinse her off. However after he drags her down stairs and lets her out of the curtain she completely clean and dry despite the fact she was just rinsed in the shower moments earlier and blood could not be totally washed out of her clothing with just water.

At the end of the credits, there is a short sequence of The Cryptkeeper asking the audience why they are still there and then inviting them to see the next Tales From the Crypt theatrical release Dead Easy (Which was the working title for the follow up Tales From the Crypt film, Bordello of Blood).
This sequence existed on the VHS and DVD releases of Demon Knight, but was removed on the Laserdisc and Blu-Ray versions of this film. See more »
In Germany the uncut version was shown in cinemas, but the video was withdrawn by the distributor to avoid confiscation by the authorities. A cut version of the movie has been shown on TV. See more »
...because Demon Knight delivers as a theatrical release. Billy Zane gives an incredible performance, but so does practically everyone in this here. There seem to be few good supernatural horror movies out there in this, the mid-late 90's, but Demon Knight is one of the best. It presents an interesting mythology and setup, and you're left to wonder who will get out , and what will be left of them. There's some nice misleading, as we're not really sure what Zane's character's role is in the proceedings until...well , let's say he gives the Sheriff a hand. The framing device of Tales from the Crypt itself is mildly annoying, but it's pretty much gone and over with.
