“Bordello of Blood” is a 1996 horror comedy film directed by Gilbert Adler and starring Dennis Miller, Erika Eleniak, Angie Everhart, and Chris Sarandon. The film is the second installment in the “Tales from the Crypt” film series and follows a private investigator named Rafe Guttman (Dennis Miller) who stumbles upon a brothel run by a group of vampires.
Overall, “Bordello of Blood” is a fun and campy horror film that successfully blends humor and gore. The film’s performances are a mixed bag, with Dennis Miller’s comedic chops providing most of the laughs, while Angie Everhart and Erika Eleniak deliver solid performances as the seductive and deadly vampire ladies. The film’s special effects are impressive for its time, and the makeup and prosthetics used to create the various vampire characters are particularly noteworthy.
One of the film’s strengths is its ability to balance humor and horror, making it a fun and entertaining experience for fans of the horror genre. The film’s script is filled with witty one-liners and tongue-in-cheek humor that keeps the tone light, while the horror elements keep the stakes high.
However, “Bordello of Blood” is not without its flaws. The film’s pacing is uneven, with some scenes feeling rushed while others drag on for too long. Additionally, the film’s climax feels rushed and ultimately unsatisfying.
Overall, “Bordello of Blood” is a decent horror comedy that is perfect for fans of the genre. While it may not be the best film in the “Tales from the Crypt” series, it is an entertaining and worthwhile watch for those looking for a fun and gory romp.
