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>

Trivia

The studio originally wanted Cameron Diaz for the role of Jerryline, but director Ernest Dickerson convinced the producers to cast Jada Pinkett Smith instead. See more »

Goofs

Jeryline coats herself in Braker's blood to prevent The Collector from touching her and her underwear is stained to the point that it is nearly black. The Collector responds by throwing her in the shower to rinse her off. However after he drags her down stairs and lets her out of the curtain she completely clean and dry despite the fact she was just rinsed in the shower moments earlier and blood could not be totally washed out of her clothing with just water.

Quotes

[taking off his outfit]
The Collector: Fuck this cowboy shit! You fucking ho-dunk, po-dunk, well then there motherfuckers! All you had to do was give me the goddamn key! Then we could get on with our lives.
[cuts his hand to make new creatures]
The Collector: Alright... this house is hereby... condemned...

14 June 2003 | by (Monterrey N.L. México) – See all my reviews

This Movie Rocks, it is definately a movie you should go see if you call yourself a real horror genere fan, because with this movie youll have fun and see a great spectacle of special effects, performances and ghouls, "Tales from the Crypt" deliver again with this great movie, This is the definitive "Tales" Movie because it´s next installment "Bordello of Blood" was not near as good as this one, hope you do rent it and add it to your collection as I did to mine, I have its official big movie poster on my room and love it very much, Thank you. Ill give it a terrific 10 out of 10 on Dark Comedic cool Horror.
