Welcome to February's 28 Days Of Sequels! Every day throughout February one of our VIPers (Jenn, Susan Or Melanie) with occasional comments from the others will present a movie sequel complete with a trailer!
The big difference with this list is they aren't all winners that we loved. Some were disappointments and some just trainwrecks. Hollywood is short on original ideas so when one hits big, they milk it for all its worth and squeeze it dry. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
Day 27 - Tales from the Crypt presents Bordello Of Blood - Mel
The first Tales from the Crypt movie Demon Knight was fabulous. Cheesy, dark humor, and Billy Zane was fabulous. A year later they decided they were going to release a sequel.
One of the interesting things about this movie is that when you see it in the DVD packs it is always listed first, even though it's the sequel, but honestly as a Tales from the Crypt movies are basically stories on their own.
There is a very tenuous link between the two but you could definitely watch Bordello of Blood with no knowledge of the first one, although if you did it would probably put you off watching Demon Knight.
I think the biggest issue with the movie was that everything changed from the original plan, from the story idea to the cast. There were disagreements on set, special effects budgets were cut because one of the cast would only be in the movie for way more money than the film had been budgeted for, and sadly everything didn't quite come together.
It's definitely not as good as the first one, but as a bloodfest filled dark comedy, it works.
**THIS WILL BE A GIVEAWAY MOVIE AT THE END OF THE MONTH***
