Dir. Ernest Dickerson. 1995, 92 mins. DCP. With Billy Zane, William Sadler, Jada Pinkett, Brenda Bakke, C. C. H. Pounder, Thomas Haden Church. A mysterious drifter known as Brayker (Sadler) possesses the last of seven ancient keys that hold the power to stop the forces of darkness and protect all humanity from ultimate evil. But the human race is safe only if Brayker can evade the demonic Collector (Zane), who has gathered the other six keys. In his obsessive quest for the key, the Collector rallies an army of ghastly cadavers against Brayker and the inhabitants of a rundown hotel. Armed with automatic weapons, sacred blood and sadistic humor, Brayker and the strong-willed Jeryline (Pinkett-Smith) lead the other guests in a gruesome battle against the Collector and his evil horde of ghouls.
