A straight man’s wet dream!
Bordello of Blood is released as a double feature, under the Tales from the Crypt brand, along with Demon Knight. Those are perfect companion pieces and can be watched in any order. A symbol unites both films; a vial filled with the blood of Jesus, according to Demon Knight. First, we get a horrific introduction, then a preface with the Crypt Keeper, in his world, as we would have on the TV show.
In a nutshell, this is a straight man’s wet dream gone wrong... with vampires. It is more a comedy than Demon Knight is. It is about a catholic preacher, his assistant and the detective she hires to investigate her brother’s disappearance. As it turns out, everybody’s journey converge towards an underground whorehouse infested with vampires. Expect buckets of nudity and gore!
All joking aside, the performances are irreproachable and the script highly entertaining. The story is sexy, kinky, includes some BDSM and even some lesbianism. The filming locations are limited and so is the amount of characters. Catholicism takes a big importance, here, as it does in Demon Knight. While it may irritate some viewers, it is a perfectly valid plot device against evil.
