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
