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
Fox had aired a pilot for "Two-Fisted Tales" which was intended to be a spin-off series to this show in 1991. The show was based off of the 50s EC Comics of the same name. The episodes, "Yellow", "Showdown", and "King of the Road" were originally intended to be the first episodes of that show. When the network passed on the pilot however, the episodes were given to HBO and the Cryptkeeper segments were added onto those episodes. See more »

One of the best TV shows ever made and one of HBO's finest...
Based on the gruesome EC comics of the same name, Tales From the Crypt showcased a wide ranged of talent in both in front and behind the screen. And despite the name, not every episode was pure horror... some could be laugh-out-loud humorous, and some were even dramatic that could put you to the verge of shedding tears. The makeup on the series was excellent, and made the scenes that were gruesome very hard to watch. And of course, let's not forget the the dead one himself, the Cryptkeeper. John Kassir was absolutely perfect as the voice of the ghoulish host. For people who missed the series, I truly think you should purchase the DVD sets and check it out. Be warned though, there are some scenes that you may have a tough time stomaching.
