When I was a teen, before the The Craft (1996) there was Demon Knight (1995). The trailer alone had all the Gothic kids hyped. I was excited too - I was all about horror films back when they were still decent - but the way the film was advertised was much like the way Ninja Assassin (2009) was advertised fourteen years later: the Black heroine was conveniently missing/diminished in the trailer.
I didn't get to see it until years after it was released, and that's when I wondered how come no one mentioned Jeryline.
Make no mistake: Ex-convict Jeryline (Jada Pinkett Smith) is most assuredly the shero of this flick. When the Demon Knight (Billy Zane, at his best) professes his love for her (oh, yes...they go there), she outwits and defeats him, and is ultimately the last one standing, the new protector of one of seven sacred Keys.
*nods* There need be some fanfic for this (looks at Amaya).

Demon Knight is available to watch instantly on Netflix. And you can expect a vid for Jeryline by next week.
