Tales from the Crypt: The Complete Sixth Season (DVD)

If you've been missing the Crypt Keeper, here's a chance to improve your aim! But be warned: the cadaverous cut-up is your host for a 15-episode deathly digest based on classic horror comics from back in the day and featuring a parade of characters who are variously merciless, clueless, topless and headless. Benicio Del Toro, Lost's Terry O'Quinn, Hank Azaria, Shelley Hack, Isaac Hayes, Richard Lewis, John Lithgow, Wayne Newton, Isabella Rossellini, Rita Rudner, Slash and Humphrey Bogart (you read that right) are among the stars. And vampires, mad doctors, killers, ghosts and adulterers are eager to come out and play. We could tell you more, but that would be wrong. You do know rot from wrong, don't you? Prepare yourself for a scareific season six.

The sixth season of HBO's smashing horror anthology Tales From the Crypt marked a slight decline in terms of both horror and fun for the show, but it's still great regardless. Surprisingly, some of the best episodes of this season feature less horror elements than one would expect, including "Only Skin Deep", which features a control freak (Stephen Liska) who gets a big Halloween surprise after a one night stand with a mask wearing stranger (Sherrie Rose), as well as "The Bribe", in which a fire marshal (Terry O'Quinn) goes to extreme measures to ensure his daughter (Kimberly Williams) stays out of a sleazy club run by Esai Morales and a pre-Oscar winning Benicio Del Toro. "Staired in Horror" features D.B. Sweeney as a con on the run who holds up the house of an elderly woman for the night, and gets a big surprise. "Doctor of Horror" is a great episode featuring Hank Azaria and Travis Tritt as two night guards trying to make a quick buck from a doctor (Austin Pendleton) who thinks he can discover and harvest the human soul, while "Comes the Dawn" features Michael Ironside and Bruce Payne as two poachers in Alaska who come across demonic vampires (this episode pre-dates Steve Niles' comic book and upcoming film adaptation 30 Days of Night in terms of it's central idea). The standout episode however comes from executive producer and director Robert Zemeckis, hot off the success of Forest Gump. Using the computer imagery technology he used in stock footage in that film, he re-creates the face and voice of legendary actor Humphrey Bogart in the ultra campy, and enjoyable, "You, Murderer"; which also features John Lithgow and Isabella Rossellini.Read more ›

Though I would agree that the sixth season marked the beginning of the end (both literally and artistically/creatively) for the TFTC franchise, there is still much to enjoy here. The low point episode here would definitely have to be "The Pit" which is about as frightening or funny or clever as a Partridge Family re-run. Without question, my least favorite episode of the first six seasons. The 7th season is in a separate category as the series' journey across the pond rendered it a mind-numbing exercise in boredom and desperation, with only a couple of good episodes eking their way out of that uninspired bog.

Incidentally, a couple of reviewers reference Stephen Liska as the control freak on the losing side of a one night stand in "Only Skin Deep." That's incorrect, that role was played by Peter Onorati. No big whoop, I know, but just wanted to give credit where credit's due.

Personal favorites from this season are, in no particular order, as follows:

* Only Skin Deep

* Let the Punishment Fit the Crime

* Staired in Horror

* Revenge is the Nuts

* Comes the Dawn

* Doctor of Horror

And I don't care what anybody says, I like "The Assassin" even if it is predictable. I love the whole Donna Reed/Susie Homemaker shtick that Shelley Hack serves up so straight-faced and the clever way everyone was "offed." Good fun. Tales from the Crypt: The Complete Sixth Season

By this sixth season, the series had fallen into a sense of redundancy and suffered from weaker scripts and performances; this penultimate season still manages to offer some choice bits, and for fans of the series, it should be entertaining enough. In a crypt shell:
LET THE PUNISHMENT FIT THE CRIME - Catherine O'Hara stars as an ambulance chasing attorney who finds herself on the other side of the law in a horribly strict small town. Peter MacNicol costars. ***
ONLY SKIN DEEP - Peter Onorati plays a sleazy man who picks up a girl at a masquerade party only to find she's not exactly what she seems. **
WHIRLPOOL - Confusing deja vu piece with weak performances from Rita Rudner and Richard Lewis. **
OPERATION FRIENDSHIP - Bizarre little tale about a man whose best friend is really an alterego. Good performances from Tate Donovan and Peter Dobson help. ***
REVENGE IS THE NUTS - Ludicrously silly tale of a doctor who abuses his mental patients. Overacting from Anthony Zerbe is a hoot. **
THE BRIBE - One of the better episodes finds Terry O'Quinn as an honest firechief who takes a bribe to finance his daughter's college tuition, only to have it end in tragedy. Nice twist. ****
THE PIT - Tongue in cheek humor and a role reversal elevates this one where two martial artists seek revenge on their possessive spouses. Mark Dacascos stars. ***
THE ASSASSIN - A predictable twist not withstanding, this wry little tale offers Shelley Hack as the victim of assassins who want to kill her husband. ***
STAIRED IN HORROR - Predictable gothic tale with DB Sweeney as a convict on the run who seeks shelter from a haggish Rachel Ticotin, who is a little different when she goes upstairs.

Here it is, creeps, the Sixth Season of Tales From the Crypt. This is when the series began to decline in quality, unfortunately. Let's take a look at each episode.

*POSSIBLE MILD SPOILERS*

1. "Let The Punishment Fit The Crime" - Catherine O'Hara plays a big city lawyer who ends up in a backwater courthouse and insanity ensues. A good episode, but a bit surreal for TFTC. Kind of feels like the Twilight Zone, but ok. 3 stars out of 5.

2. "Only Skin Deep" - One of the more memorable episodes from this season. A man meets a masked woman at a Halloween party. Suddenly things become Jacob's Ladder. Interestingly, this is the only Halloween themed episode I can remember. 3 and a half stars.

3. "Whirlpool" - I remember this episode. Harry Anderson goes crazy and his wife wears a dress that looks like a Wonder Bread package. No wait, this is about a different Tales From the Crypt artist. This time the artist is played by Rita Rudner. She goes a little crazy as well, but Richard Lewis is there to comfort her. 3 stars.

4. "Operation: Friendship" - Another Twilight Zone episode. This is when this season started to look low-buck. Nothing against Tales From the Darkside because I love that show, but this looks like TFTD, not TFTC. You are not going to be straining your brain looking for the twist in this one. It's alright... it's just not the level of quality we expect. 2 and a half stars.

5. "Revenge Is The Nuts" - This is the one where Isaac Hayes lives in a home for the blind and the headmaster is a psycho. The entire episode takes place in the dark as well. I felt blind watching it. 2 and a half stars.

6. "The Bribe" - This is, in my opinion, the worst episode in the series' run.
