Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
I love Tales From the Crypt: Demon Knight. Adore it. Seriously, it really does feel like a feature length great Tales from the Crypt episode. The mythology is great, the humor is perfect, the designs of the demons are creepy, the way they can get inside your mind even creepier and the cast is outstanding. William Sadler as the badass demon-fighter, Billy Zane as the charismatic demon leader and a cast of misfits that include awesome character actors like Dick Miller, CCH Pounder, Charles “Roger Rabbit” Fleischer and Thomas Haden Church. Even Jada Pinkett (pre-Smith) kicks ass in the movie.
The tone of Demon Knight is one that I wish movies could still hit today. When they try to make fun horror like this now we get winky-winky at the audience shit like Feast. Is it so hard to make horror movies that are fun, funny, but also still horror movies? I guess it must be because there aren’t a whole hell of a lot of them out there.
So, let’s celebrate one of the good ones with this behind the scenes shot of Billy Zane hanging with some crew members and some demon baddies, shall we? Thanks again to the practical effects group for throwing out these rarities! Click to enlargen!

In honor of the newly car-struck (and still walking) badass that is Gene Hackman I think tomorrow we’ll run some more never-before-seen Conversation Behind the Scenes pics!
