    Synopsis


    Back with his usual complement of horrific stories (and even more horrific clumsy puns and bum jokes) is our congenial -- or congealed -- host, The Cryptkeeper, who ushers in season five of Tales From the Crypt. Tim Curry and Ed Begley Jr. headline the season opener "Death of Some Salesman," in which an overzealous cemetery plot peddler falls for the wrong farmer's daughter. This episode originally aired as part of a 90-minute special, bundled together with two subsequent Tales From the Crypt: "As Ye Sow" (with Hector Elizondo) and the irresistibly titled "Forever Ambergris" (with Roger Daltrey). Some of the season's better entries include "Well Cooked Hams," featuring Martin Sheen as you've never seen him before; "Came the Dawn," starring Brooke Shields as a sexy hitchhiker who lures a two-bit thief (Perry King) into an unearthly crime of passion; and the season five finale, "Till Death Do We Part," with Eileen Brennan as center of attention in a mob hit...and a scorned lover's vengeance. ~ Hal Erickson

      I was browsing in Best Buy a couple weeks back and saw this in a bin for only $9.99 along with Season 1 as well. I already had seasons 2 and 7 and am slowly building my collection to complete this series. I was glad I found this one along with Season 1 as I was ecstatic to see them. I snatched them up and brought them home and immediately watched them. They bring back old childhood memories of staying up late at night watching HBO and seeing great Horror stories. If you're a fan of classic Horror and, sometimes, dark humor, you must buy these sets.

      HBO's "Tales From the Crypt" series ran 7 years, featuring scores of great directors & performers. Ushering horror from the end of the 80s into the 90s, a decade largely devoid of horror films, The Cryptkeeper's tales are always sure to titillate. There some truly great episodes & some oddball duds, but on the whole, you'll always find time for the sleazy stories & pun-laden intros.

      This was one of the must watch shows that we viewed every week in our house on our favorite paid cable channel. If you like a half hour (or sometimes an hour) of thrill and chills, Tales from the Crypt is for you. Coming from the genius who gave us Mad magazine, you can't miss with his craziness and twisted sense of horror.

      Great Deal For Classic TV Horror

      As a kid I remember trying to stay up late or sneaking in some late-night Tales From the Crypt. At $10 for each volume it's a steal. The episodes are still as gruesome and grim as I remember, but now as an adult I can comprehend the message that they were trying to tell. Definitely recommended for horror fans of all tastes.

      Came across this collection at the same time as the Season 3 South Park. My oldest son started my collection (Christmas present 2 years ago) of this classic TV show and season 5 was one I still did not have (a show you don't run across very often). So glad I was browsing that day and found (at that time) the only copy in the store.

      Signification

      This was another great season for the "Crypt." "People Who Live in Brass Hearses," "Halfway Horrible" and "Death of Some Salesmen" are my favorite episodes in this season. The remaining episodes are great as well. Highly recommended.
