Feels like a long episode of the TftC, which partly works against it in the end. Pinkett Smith is as bland as a cucumber and the story itself could be more interesting, but overall a pretty fun late night movie. Special effects are great and the crooked camera angles add to the comic-like atmosphere. Zane really steals the show, though. He's perfect for the role and perfectly, um, zany. "Fuck this cowboy shit!"
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.
