Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.

A modern revival of the classic sci-fi horror anthology show The Outer Limits (1963). Episodes often have twist-endings and involve aliens. Sometimes, story from one episode continues in a later episode.
Half-hour stories with many themes, including; horror, twists, black-magic, sci.-fi. .... Introduced by a puppet called "The Crypt Keeper". A cross between "The Twilight Zone" and modern horror movies. Not suitable for the very young or squeamish. Written by
Not all of the episodes were based specifically on the "Tales From The Crypt" comic book series of the 1950s EC Comics. Many episodes were also based on the "Vault of Horror", the "Haunt of Fear", "Shock SuspenStories", "Crime SuspenStories", and "Two-Fisted Tales" comic book series. See more »

Season One: Qualifications To Be Admitted Into The 'Crypt'
If you are a somewhat warped person with a dark sense of humor, you'll really like this offering. Obviously I plead guilty because I liked this, although one of episodes turned me off. Nonetheless, it's very entertaining because of the effective mix of comedy, suspense, horror and originality.
You only get six stories from this opening (1989) season of horror-comedy on cable television, but at a fairly cheap price, the DVD set still is well worth it.
In addition to the crazy stories, you get some surprisingly good cinematography. The picture isn't razor sharp but it's well-photographed. Some pretty big directors in the film business - Richard Donner, Robert Zemeckis, Joel Silver, David Giler and Walter Hill - are involved.
Each show features an actor or two who's familiar and they must have had fun making these. You can just see it as they ham it up in their roles. Warning: the language is rough. This is R-rated material....and perhaps only for sick people, as I must be.
