A wanderer who goes by the name of Brayker (William Sadler) holds the last of seven keys that hold the power to eliminate evil and protect the world from darkness in this rousing horror flick. The evil Collector (Billy Zane), however, possesses the other six. Anxious to hold the final key, the Collector assembles a team of walking dead to take out Brayker, Jeryline (Jada Pinkett Smith) and the other residents of a rundown boarding house.
First crypt film was a fun little horror that would have been better served without the crypt wraparound. Billy Zane mugs it up in his best sarcastic mode as the collector trying to attain a key full of the blood of christ. Good support from Smith and Sadler and of course Dick Miller. Good demon effects well worth revisiting on an all hallows eve.
