'Tales from the Crypt Presents: Demon Knight' (1995)
Quick synopsis: Denizens at an isolated inn are caught in a life-and-death battle after a mysterious boarder is tracked there by a demonic hell-raiser known as the Collector.
Why it's worth your time: This largely-forgotten gem - the kick-off of a short-lived "Tales from the Crypt"-themed movie franchise - is a must-view for any horror-comedy aficionado. Featuring terrific practical effects work by Todd Masters (the "Cordelia monster" being a particular highlight), a memorably zany performance by Billy Zane in the role of the main baddie and a deft sense of pacing courtesy of director Ernest Dickerson ("The Walking Dead"), "Demon Knight" is a first-rate B-movie blast that deserves a second look.
