Trivia

This is the only episode where John Kassir, the voice of the Crypt Keeper, actually appears on screen as an actor. The Crypt Keeper is shown watching this episode on VHS during the closing sequence where he usually sums up the story. He rewinds it to a scene with John Kassir and starts praising him. He says that "this actor" was as good as Gary Cooper or Robert Redford and that his voice reminds him of someone he knows. See more »

Today's been a real b-word

An all-star cast is front and center in this episode about a con-man and a con-woman who attempt to cheat a foursome of good ol' boys by making them think that there's oil beneath a graveyard. Lou Diamond Phillips (Young Guns) and Priscilla Presley (The Naked Gun) are the con artists and have decent chemistry but it's the seasoned cast that makes the show. Noble Willingham (The Last Boyscout), Steve Kahan (Lethal Weapon 1-4), Alan Ruck (Ferris Bueller's Day Off), and legend Rory Calhoun are all great. The plot, however, is full of holes. luckily the episode's cast helps you forget the logic and enjoy a twisted, fun little tale from the crypt. FF(Fun Fact): In the cryptkeeper wrap-around, he remarks on the acting chops of a certain actor in the show. The actor just happens to be John Kassir, the voice of the cryptkeeper. Also, the cryptkeeper begins the story by playing a limited edition Tales from the Crypt pinball game, a rare collectible.
