Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Pic is neither funny enough nor scary enough to be fully satisfying as either a shocker or a spoof."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Next time out, let's hope it involves a story that can stand on its own, without having to be propped up by the Crypt Keeper's silly patter."
‑ David Kronke, Los Angeles Times
"As for fans of Zane, if there was ever a film where the man breaks loose with his charm and enthusiasm, "Demon Knight" is his podium."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Good-humored gore, ably directed by Ernest Dickerson."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The problem here is clearly the script, with very little that is original and amusing."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"The first in a series, but standards will need to impove if it's to survive."
‑ , Time Out
"The movie isn't particularly well-paced, and I found it dull."
‑ Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle
"if the sight of Technicolor disembowelment and flying eyeballs ain't your cup of tea, there's always Terms of Endearment waiting down at the video store."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"Billy Zane's finest hour. Yeah, I know, that's depressing."
‑ Widgett Walls, Needcoffee.com
"Appallingly straightforward horror fare."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"Between scenes of splattering gore in which severed heads literally roll across the floor, the movie has a good time spoofing itself and a gallery of mostly sleazy characters who confront a crew of blood-thirsty demons."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Good entertainment stretched to three times its natural length is rarely three times better, but bad entertainment dragged out that long will typically be three times worse."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Pinkett, at least, went on to better things."
‑ , Film4
"A big, dumb Night of the Living Dead rip-off with demons that convince you that Pumpkinhead must have reproduced. Fun junk."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"I don't want to spoil what happens next, but can reveal that it involves: torn limbs, spurting gore, decapitations, eyeballs and guts spilled on the floor -- the standard gruesome stuff."
‑ Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Examiner
