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

Birds had nested in the rafters of the set, which caused audio problems, so before each take the crew would shoot off a blank gunshot to startle and quiet the animals. See more »
At one point, a character is about to put the relic into the collector's suitcase, and the collector makes a big deal about asking that person to empty the liquid out of the relic first.
Later, another person will offer to put the relic into the suitcase, and the collector does not even mention the liquid. See more »

Cuuut! cutcutcutcut cut. What the hell are you doing? You call that hack-ting?
[Disfigured corpse turns out to be an actor, and it becomes apparent that scenery is really just a movie set]
Well... Yes, as a matter of fact I do call it ACTING.
Well let me tell you something pal, you're no Gory Cooper, you aren't even a Robert Deadford. Another take like that and it'll be back to bit parts for you, and I won't say what 'bits' I'm talking about.

At the end of the credits, there is a short sequence of The Cryptkeeper asking the audience why they are still there and then inviting them to see the next Tales From the Crypt theatrical release Dead Easy (Which was the working title for the follow up Tales From the Crypt film, Bordello of Blood).
This sequence existed on the VHS and DVD releases of Demon Knight, but was removed on the Laserdisc and Blu-Ray versions of this film. See more »
In the Sci-Fi channel version, the scene where Uncle Willy is tricked by the Collector was altered so that the girls in the scene would be wearing bikini tops. See more »
A man called Frank Brayker (William Sadler) is driving a car through a desert road chased by another car. They crash and Brayker flees from the spot. He unsuccessfully tries to heist a car and stumbles upon the alcoholic Uncle Willy (Dick Miller). Then he asks for a place to stay and Willy indicates a nearby bed and breakfast in an abandoned church. Brayker goes with Willy to the inn where he checks in with the owner Irene (CCH Pounder). He is introduced to the guests: the whore Cordelia (Brenda Bakke); the postal clerk Wally Enfield (Charles Fleischer) and the maid Jeryline (Jada Pinkett Smith). Meanwhile, Sheriff Tupper (John Schuck) and Deputy Bob Martel (Gary Farmer) finds a man called The Collector (Billy Zane) near the accident that tells that Brayker is a thief that has stolen a key-like relic from him. When the crook Roach (Thomas Haden Church), he tells about the attempt of theft of a car, the suspicious Irene calls the Sheriff that comes with his Deputy and The Collector that tries to retrieve the relic. When the Sheriff decides to take Brayker and The Collector to the police station since both cars were stolen, The Collector kills him with a powerful punch. However Brayker uses the relic to expel The Collector to outside and he uses his blood on the soil to create demons. However Brayker uses blood from the relic to protect the inn. The Collector is unable to get in the place and uses his power to tempt each person inside the inn. Who will win the battle between good and evil?
"Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight" is a funny entertainment with a story of a fight between good and evil. Fans of the TV show will certainly enjoy the long episode. Billy Zane is hilarious in many moments and steals the show; William Sadler good as usual; the sexy Brenda Bakke performs Cordelia that seems to be a laboratory to Selena Coombs from "American Gothic"in the same year. Unfortunately for the fans only this film and "Bordello of Blood" (1996) have been made and this wonderful franchise is finished. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Os Demônios da Noite" ("The Demons of the Night")
