Trivia: Bordello of Blood
  • Franchise Killer: This movie brought down both the original Tales from the Crypt television series (which had just been Uncancelled) and the film series as well after its poor reviews and box office. As a result, an eventual third installment (Ritual) went straight-to-DVD and initially had its ties to the franchise edited out. Another film (Fat Tuesday) had a completed script, but was canceled in pre-production. (Word of God, though, insists that was due to other factors.)
    • Though according to some rumors, Tuesday was finished...but was left unreleased.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Of course, everyone will know Dennis Miller (former Saturday Night Live cast member and Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness Incarnate). Some may also recognize Chris Sarandon, who starred in another movie featuring vampires. And let's not forget Corey Feldman.
  • Old Shame: For Dennis Miller, though he has a sense of humor about it. Bill O'Reilly still never misses a chance to remind him of the movie whenever Miller appears on his show.
  • Prop Recycling: The Key from Demon Knight returns in this film. Oddly, they never say what exactly it is, but the effect it has on vampires and the way it explodes in a red flash when destroyed suggests it might actually be the same item. Which has some disturbing implications... in both directions.
    • However, they do mention in Demon Knight that there was more then one key (in-fact SEVEN of them), and its possible all keys look like that.
      • Also the end of the world was only if the demons got all the keys. Maybe this means we're permanently saved!
      • It is meant to be one of the keys, one was supposed to appear in each Crypt movie, but it didn't appear in the third film. The destruction of this key would also explain the Cryptkeeper's assertion in Demon Knight that Jerilyn lives happily ever after.
  • Recycled Script: The host segments here are almost the same as the ones from a fifth season episode, "The Assassin"—even reusing guest star William Sadler! (Though he plays a mummy here instead of the Grim Reaper.)
