Welcome back, fiends and ghouls! The cadaverous Cryptkeeper has 13 grim little morality plays to chill your marrow and whiten your hair during season three of Tales From the Crypt. This year's merry mayhem is kicked off with a 90-minute special, comprised of three half-hour stories: "The Trap," starring Teri Garr and Bruno Kirby in a cautionary fable about an insurance scam; "Loved to Death," with Andrew McCarthy as a nerdish screenwriter who gets more than he bargained for when he transforms his sexy neighbor (Mariel Hemingway) into his willing love slave; and "Carrion Death" invokes unpleasant memories of Erich Von Stroheim's Greed as an escaped convict (Kyle MacLachlan) makes a desperate dash across the desert while still manacled to the corpse of a lawman. Other hell-acious season three highlights include "Abra Cadaver," in which a brilliant surgeon exacts a nasty revenge upon his practical-joking brother; "The Reluctant Vampire," with Malcolm McDowell as a gentle-natured bloodsucker who worries about reverting to his old bad habits when his current plasma supply runs out; and "Split Second," wherein the friends of a lumberjack come up with a sharp-edged comeuppance for the man who permanently blinded their pal. The last episode of the season eschews the supernatural in favor of straightforward suspense and human conflict, and is all the better for it; "Yellow," is directed by Robert Zemeckis and stars Kirk Douglas as a taciturn WWI Army officer who must deal with the cowardice of his son (played by Kirk's real-life son Eric Douglas) in his own unique fashion. ~ Hal Erickson
