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
The name of The Ventriloquist, "Mr. Ingels," in the episode "The Ventriloquest's Dummy" is a reference to legendary horror artist Graham Ingels. In fact, he illustrated the story "The Ventriloquest's Dummy!" from Tales From the Crypt #28, the story the episode is based on. Ingels is best known for his work of "The Old Witch" from The Haunt of Fear, the sister title of Tales From the Crypt published by E.C. After horror comics were vilified and ceased to be published in the mid 1950s, Ingels relocated to Florida and became a recluse. Although he taught art lessons and was well regarded in his community, friends and former associates were clueless as to his whereabouts, or even if he were still alive. See more »

Tales From The Crypt was and still is the best horror series on TV period. Sure there was Freddy's Nightmares and Friday the 13th the series, and even the Hitchhiker and Tales From The Darkside, they all fell short of Tales From The Crypt. My two favorites have to be the Santa one (Where the maniac escapes and terrorizes a woman who had just killed her husband on Christmas Eve.) And Til Death ( The one where this guy ODs the girl he wants on a love drug and kills her, then she comes back to life a rotting zombie chasing after him.) Most of the other episodes were much better than the other series offerings. I think Tales From The Crypt can still be seen on the Sci-Fi Channel late nights, and on some local channels on late Saturday nights. Actually with television they way it is now (with mostly stupid sit-coms) In my opinion Tales is one the few good shows on the air. If you by some chance have never seen this series watch a few episodes for yourself you might like it.
