"Failed" Tales from the Crypt Spin-Off
1 March 2000 | by ab-14See all my reviews

This was a pilot for Fox that only aired once. It's basically another version of HBO's "Tales from the Crypt" with a different host (live, not animatronic). It's named after another of Gaines' EC comics which featured more action-oriented stories.

After Fox didn't pick it up, the two stories were repackaged as episodes of "Tales from the Crypt" and are aired that way to this day.

I don't believe the original version is available anywhere unless you taped it off the air as I did. When I find that tape, I'll fill in the rest of this page. :-)

The two episodes probably don't stick out among the regular "Tales from the Crypt" ones, and the show won't be back, so there's not much to review. It's more of a footnote to the HBO series.
