Storyline

Brayker is a man who carries the last of seven keys, special containers which held the blood of Christ and were scattered across the universe to prevent the forces of evil from taking over. If The Collector gets the last key, the universe will fall into Chaos, and he has been tracking Brayker all the way to a small inn in a nowhere town. And now the final battle for the universe begins...... Written by Michael Silva <silvamd@cleo.bc.edu>

2 April 2000 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

This movie was excellent. The story is great and truly lives up to the EC comics and tv series. All the actors give impressive performances, especially Billy Zane. Zane's character is both threatening and humorous. Like the show, the movie is filled with surprises from beginning to end. Don't miss it.
