Synopsis


Come with us to the old graveyard, where your congenial host, the skeletal Cryptkeeper, chuckles and chortles his way through the six half-hour episodes comprising season one of Tales from the Crypt. First on the slab -- er, docket -- is "The Man Who Was Death," in which an enterprising executioner (Bill Sadler) sets up a "private practice" after capital punishment is abolished. This is followed by the Robert Zemeckis-directed "And All Through the House," featuring a serial murderer who looks a lot like Jolly Ol' Saint Nick. Next up is "Dig That Cat...He's Real Gone," with a down-and-outer agreeing to having a cat-gland transplant to test out the old "nine lives" theory. These three episodes were originally presented as a single 90-minute special. The remaining three were seen on a weekly basis. These include "Only Sin Deep," starring Lea Thompson as a hooker who pawns her beauty to snare a rich husband; "Lover Come Hack to Me," the story of a honeymoon, a haunted house, and a bride (Amanda Plummer) who's simply full of nasty surprises; and "Collection Completed," with M. Emmet Walsh as a grouchy old man whose dislike of his wife's collection of pets leads to a denouement that shouldn't happen to a dog. ~ Hal Erickson

    I was surprised to see the first season of Tales From The Crypt for only $9.99 in Best Buy, so I had to snag it. I already had seasons 2 and 7, so I'm slowly completing my collection on this series. Anyway, these sets bring back childhood memories of watching HBO, even though I was not supposed to, and seeing great horror stories. Make sure you get this one at this price point before they go out of print.

    Signification

    This is easily one of my favorite television shows. My favorite episodes of the first season are "The Man Who Was Death," "And All Through the House" and "Collection Completed." The DVD's second disc includes a lengthy documentary chronicling "Tales from the Crypt" from its inception as an EC comic to the 1990s when it became a popular show on HBO. Highly recommended.

    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.

    Use to watch this series back in day before all the premium channels had shows. HBO series one of only few that aired on premium cable late night TV. Forgot about all the stars that were on this show.

    I got this on sale only to find that you can find double packs of season two and one for a better deal. Still the show itself is great even if the first season only has six episodes.
