2.0*/5.0*

The second Tales from the Crypt film. You pretty much know what you're getting when you choose to sit down for this franchise. A remnant of the 80s horror scene, with kitschy horror effects, a barrage of puns and a slew of bad actors. It's a good thing the film doesn't even try to be serious.

A mortuary disguised as a whore house is the primary setting of Bordello of Blood. Some money-hungry priests revived Lilith, an age-old vampire, and recruited her into their business. She runs the whorehouse where unsuspecting clients find their untimely death. A private investigator is put on the case after Katherine's brother goes missing, it doesn't take him long before he finds out about the hidden bordello.

The setup of the film is a little awkward, the crypt keeper's part doesn't make much sense at all, but you can't have a Tales of the Crypt film without him. Performances are also quite horrible and the comedy is very limited, but there's enough cheese to make it entertaining and the short runtime certainly helps. Not a great film, not the worst horror film either.
