We gave it a B

While this heavy-metal soundtrack, Tales From the Crypt Presents Demon Knight, boasts such gory titles as Ministry’s ”Tonight We Murder” and Gravediggaz’s ”1-800-Suicide,” it’s the less explicit material that really gives you the creeps. In ”Fall Guy,” Henry Rollins gets inside the head of a guy who feels ”messed up and used” and fills it with power chords. Biohazard’s ”Beaten” and Machine Head’s ”My Misery” also take trips through dark psyches-fueled by screaming guitars and crashing cymbals. B
