    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

      This series is great just the way I remember it. The quality of the dvd is fine. The good thing about this release is that it has all the releases in one package, not like before where they sold them separately. It has all of the extras that the old release had so you are not losing anything in this release. I would definitely recommend this if you want to see the series and own it. It is the best quality you can get for this series and it comes packaged real nice.

      Must have if you are a Tales from the Crypt fan. Waited for them to come out with a box set instead of buying individually even though it just is each individual episode in a box. It still makes storage easier.

      I watched most of these episodes before. It's been a long. Now I'm watching them with my 16 year old daughter. We love Tales from the Crypt. It's also interesting to learn Arnold S. made one of the episodes.

      This set is certainly for those of us that watched the Tales from the Crypt. You will enjoy and Best Buy has the set at the lowest price of all the on-line movie outlets I have looked at (more than 10).

      I normally prefer Blu Ray disc but since the show was before HD video, I gave it a try. Picture quality was good and it brought back memories watching the show. Nice to have the entire series.

      This box set is fantastic, and the best way to own this series. A great price and easier than trying to find all the seasons one at a time.

      It's great to relive some of these stories. As always with anthology pieces like this, some are better than others, but having it all in one collection makes it easy to jump around.

      I bought this to complete my Tales collection. Not bad but nothing special about it either. A bit over priced, check it out whenever it goes on sale.
