[thinking they found something valuable in a buried box, they open it]
A comic book? We did all this for a comic book?
It's issue number one of Tales from the Crypt!
Issue number one? Well that's just "primo"! I hate to think what we have to go through for issue number two!

How best to begin a new Tales from the Crypt series? Well, it looks like someone said "Cram as many creatures in as you possibly can!" We get Frankenstein's monster, a werewolf, a mummy, zombies, vampires, even a giant octopus. But what we don't get is a good story.
Two kids decide to break into a house so they can buy a bike. Two annoying kids who do nothing to win our sympathy, I should add. That's pretty much it in terms of plot.
The animation is a mixed bag. I liked the thick shadows that became frequent in cartoons of the mid-90's and the spooky mansion is filled with great atmosphere, but the creatures are laughable in their design.
And the ending. The ending! I know it probably seemed clever and witty on the page, but please!
