He knows how to make comic books into something that is really real.
Joseph J. Brigante
These movies are the reason I love the horror genre more than any other and the Tales from the Crypt TV show is the reason I stayed up passed my bedtime as kid.

This 2007 "Tales From The Crypt" DVD is a very clear, clean, sharp print and is UNCUT!

...of releasing Vault in a badly cut form? I've already received my discs and, for the price, the set is worth it for Tales (which is uncut and in great shape), so I won't be returning it. So, I do recommend buying the set for this film. However, it is inexcusable that Fox would release Vault it a censored version. Really, what is the point? The cuts are "brutal", in that they are really ragged looking freeze frames and the actual violence is mild compared to the normal fare seen on the screens these days.

This really speaks more for sloppiness than anything else. The uncut version is available; Fox just didn't take the time to use it. This has happened in the past with the Midnight Movie collection (Deranged comes to mind) but, again, the method of cutting is so bad - and the "gruesome" scenes the payoff for each story - that the film loses much of its enjoyment factor.

As everyone is finding out, fans (as well as those who've never seen them) of the British horror anthologies of the 70's have been dealt a blow with Fox's release of "Tales from the Crypt" and "Vault of Horror". As everyone is also finding out, "Tales" looks good and is intact, while "Vault" is badly edited. Well, that's because "Tales" was originally rated PG and "Vault" was rated R. And what really burns me up is that it's advertised by Fox (and on Amazon) as still retaining it's R rating. Leading one to believe, of course, it's in it's original theatrical release form. Not so. To me, this is false advertising. I have never seen "Vault of Horror", I've only known of it. I was really looking forward to finally seeing it---in it's original release form. But now, with this disc, I can't enjoy it with THIS chop job. As one reviewer said, "What's the point?". What a ripoff. And illegal too.

Congrads to Fox Video for finally coming out with DVD versions of these 2 classic 70's horror/thrillers. I can't wait to buy them.
I do hope they are the "original" uncut versions, not the old VHS versions, which had numerous cuts, especially to "Vault of Horror" Does anyone know for sure?
Of the 2, "Crypt" is probably the better one, with 5 awesome tales, with twisted finales...the best of those is with legendary Peter Cushing who won a British Film Award for his portrayal of "Grimsdyke"..that tale "Poetic Justice" has a great story, and a finale for the ages. Also great is the final tale "Blind Alley's" with Nigel Patrick as a irresponsible commander of a blind person's home..his final justice is delicious indeed. The other 3 tales are excellent, too..especially to Joan Collins X-mas classic, but the 2 I mentioned especially stand out.
"Vault" released in 1973..and sometimes re-titled "Tales 2" was a really good follow up with 5 quickly told stories...personally, this is the one I actually enjoy more. I have the old VHS version of this flick from "Nostalgia Merchant" and that was totally edited and took away some of the fun, twisted and more grisly scenes..so I hope this DVD restores all that, as the Vipco British version DVD did a few years back.
Here, 5 men are trapped in a basement lounge and tell tales that may foretell their futures. These tales seem to lack some of the shock and suspense that "Tales" had and yet they are more campy and fun. Best here is the final tale.."Drawn and Quartered" with Tom Baker as a voodoo obsessed artist seeking revenge on his enemies. It's the longest tale, and a lot of fun, if somewhat gruesome at times.

I sent an email to FOX after discovering the edited version of Vault of Horror. This was their response...

Hello,

Vault of Horror (1973) was originally released as an R-Rated film but was later re-cut to get a PG rating. This re-cut version is the only version owned by 20th Century Fox. When developing the DVD, we did research information about an uncut print which was released theatrically but after several attempts, we were unsuccessful in securing a copy of that print. To satisfy the consumer demand for the title on DVD, we decided to move forward with the widescreen PG version we had in the vaults and included it with Tales from the Crypt (1972) as part of the Midnite Movies Double Feature series.

Now that the first reviews of the product are coming in it is clear that Vault of Horror is severely cut. It seems it is the tv version that has been released which uses freeze frames at crucial moments - whether this was an intentional move by Fox or a blunder is not known. Censorship of this nature ruins the entire purpose of the movie.

I'd advise people to cancel orders if it's not too late.

Sadly, my disc has already been mailed!

UPDATE: Having now received the film and checked Vault of Horror out I can confirm that it is a terrible viewer-unfriendly version. The cuts are worse than anticipated. The final sequence in the opening story not only uses a still shot but crucial detail involving a tap has been blacked out! A large ink blot has been painted over the tap inserted in the victim's neck! Where did Fox get this print from?

Vault of Horror desperately requires a re release with the footage reinstated.

On the plus side Tales from the Crypt is uncut and includes a brief gore scene that I have never seen in all previous viewings of the film.
