Trivia

The film was originally produced as three episodes of an unsold anthology series of the same name, which would have followed the same format as Tales from the Crypt (1989), but focused on EC Comics' adventure and war stories, rather than on horror. When "Two-Fisted Tales" was not picked up, the three episodes were aired as a TV movie, as well as edited into three episodes of "Tales from the Crypt" despite the fact that they are not horror stories.

I was one of the few who saw the original broadcast
13 August 2002 | by (Tucson, AZ) – See all my reviews

Corny and horrible, I was not surprised this short lived show didn't make it. I remember fondly when Tales From the Crypt tried reusing these corny episodes like they were actually scary. Coupled with bad acting and lousy music, I was surprised this crummy showed was ever conceived. It never showed up again, and one can only be thankful for this circumstance.
