Nice little episode that pays homage to the series start as a comic book!
14 March 2007 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This 1990 "Tales From The Crypt" episode titled "Korman's Kalamity" is neat and well done, with plenty of funny and nice moments. This however isn't one of the better episodes that has fright and it doesn't really teach payback and moral lessons like many others, it just pays homage to itself. Funny man and TV comic veteran Harry Anderson stars as a struggling comic book artist for you guessed it "Tales From The Crypt", and he has pressure and stress from everyone his boss and including his witch of a wife who never gives him a good word. No one really believes in his drawings, but Korman himself yet he stays humble when he hears stories that his monster drawings have came to life! Really it turns out that these monster drawings serve good purpose by showing up at the right time from stopping a laundry mat attack of an off duty female cop, and also these monsters work well in running away kid mischief, and the big surprise is this episode ends in death for someone! Overall a good episode that is funny with a little fun and surprise, but mostly this was done to remind people that the crypt series started as a comic book, and it was nice to feature that type of plot in an episode.
