Synopsis


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

    HBO has come a long way. Back in the 90's they didn't have much Origional programming. This was about it. With a comical skeleton figure. To lead into the stories from that magazine of the 50's . Created by William Gaines later more well known for "MAD " magazine. This show had a slew of celebrities who wanted to do this show!

    These are all classics. Doesn't matter which season you buy—if you like one episode, you'll probably like them all. If you've never experienced Tales from the Crypt, you should just for cultural reference! But if you love horror, pulp-style story-telling, or the 90s in general, buy any season of Tales from the Crypt.

    Tales From the Crypt brings back great childhood memories when I was a kid sneaking a peek at the episodes when they played on HBO. This season is great and continues as business as usual for the series. Buy this if you don't have it yet.

    I love this model. It is lightweight. The pet hair power attachment works great for removing cat hair on my furniture and the under appliance wand works great for cleaning under the dryer, furnace and other hard to reach places.

    I was a fan of this as a kid and would watch it on broadcast TV. I forgot the show came out on HBO first. I didn't realize all of the editing that was done for TV. The DVD makes the show better than I remember.

    Signification

    The "Crypt" was great in season three. My favorite episode is probably Tobe Hooper's "Dead Wait," especially because of Whoopi Goldberg's performance. The season is filled with great episodes. Highly recommended.

    If you were alive in the 90s, you probably watched Tales From the Crypt. And if you didn't, but you love horror, you need to buy this immediately. TFtC was one of the best shows HBO had to offer.

    This anthology series always landed the best stars and ran on HBO in the 90's. This season starred among many, Michelle Johnson (Blame It On Rio) in a great shower scene and storyline.
