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.See more »

Not Given Enough Credit, 17 February 2004
Author: Doramius from Las Vegas, NV

If you don't understand the plots in these short stories, you shouldn't be watching anything for people over the age of 18. This is actually well mastered and put into a thinking sense. This just follows along the 'Tales From The Darkside', 'Tales From The Crypt', and 'Creepshow' genre. Not too much to make us laugh, but to give a twist on certain events or bring a plot about from an angle you would not think of normally.

There are 3 stories and it is agreed the last one 'Yellow' is one of the best. It stars Kirk Douglas and his real life son Eric. Using the Father/Son roles the son is brought before his father as a coward to be sentenced to death and his father wants to show everyone his son is a brave soldier.

Definitely worth watching for a twist on life. You'll think this was an episode out of 'The Outer Limits' or 'Twilight Zone'.
