Product Description

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

Been dying for another dose of chills from your old poison pal, the Crypt-Keeper? Then pull up a slab and revisit all the repulsive goings-on in the third season of Tales from the Crypt, the over-the-top TV anthology inspired by the classic E.C. horror comics of the '50s. All 14 episodes of the 1991 season are compiled in this three-disc set; as with previous seasons, the shows serve up gruesome tongue-in-cheek fables adapted from the original comics (and spiced up with some liberal nudity and impressive special effects), and with a host of Hollywood talent in front of and behind the camera. Series producers Robert Zemeckis and Walter Hill each contribute a creepshow apiece (the impressive season closer "Yellow," with Kirk Douglas and Dan Aykroyd, and "Deadline," with CSI's Marg Helgenberger, respectively), while Michael J. Fox stars and directs the season opener "The Trap" (which co-stars Teri Garr and Bruno Kirby). Elsewhere, Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) gets gruesome with Whoopi Goldberg in the voodoo vengeance story "Dead Wait," while action veterans Russell Mulcahy (Highlander), Stephen Hopkins (The Life and Death of Peter Sellers), and Steven De Souza (screenwriter on Die Hard) each unleash their inner spook engines on an episode, with Hopkins's bizarre "Abra Cadaver" (with Tony Goldwyn and Beau Bridges as dueling doctor siblings) a perfect summation of the Crypt spirit and the season highlight. The third-season set is rounded out by a trifecta of extras: A Tall Tales Panel is a 14-minute look at the season, with comments by a panel of series participants recorded at Comic Con in San Diego. A Tales from the Crypt Reunion is the complete half-hour panel discussion, and Crypt Jam is a frothy music video composed of clips from the season. --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars Hello, Boils and Ghouls! January 12, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Tales From the Crypt series was some of the best television airing back in the final year of the 80s and into the early 90s. Deliberately over the top. Deliberately funny. Deliberately campy at times. Deliberately scary. Deliberately gory. Deliberately one of HBO's finest creations.

The episodes are all based on EC Comics of old...mostly from the self titled Tales From the Crypt, Haunt of Fear and Vault of Horror comic books. But I'd guess that 90% of you reading this already know that, and you're here as I am delighted that it is finally out on DVD.

For those that have not seen these wonderfully entertaining episodes of dark humor and horror...if you're into the genre this collection and any of the other HBO seasonal Tales From the Crypt releases are for you.

Season 3 contains one of the most memorable episodes with Abra Cadaver: Carl (Tony Goldwyn) and Marty (Beau Bridges) are brothers who work at a hospital. When Carl plays a prank on Marty pretending to have a new way of proving that the brain lives after the body dies, the scare delivered in the prank literally gives Marty a heart attack. Years later Marty hasn't forgiven Carl and Marty "executes" a prank of his own. Deadly fun!!!

You'll also get:
-"Deadline": Never commit murder with a CSI in the cast (Marg Helgenberger).
-"The Trap": Michael J Fox directed tale of a guy that fakes his own die for!
-"Loved To Death": Love potion #9!
-"Carrion Death": More like Carrying Death...cuffed to a corpse!
-"Top Billing": Star studded episode about a frustrated hacktor who will do anything to get a part.
-"Dead Wait": Who do that voodoo? Maybe Whoopi Goldberg?
-"The Reluctant Vampire": If you're going to mess with a vampire, don't be long in the tooth!

5.0 out of 5 stars THREE SEASONS DOWN, FOUR TO GO... January 9, 2006
The third season is rather special for me because it has two of my favourite episodes of the whole show - "Abra Cadaver" and "Yellow". As we all know "Tales from the Crypt" is one of the best TV-shows ever, and I personally don't ponder whether to buy it or not. Definately yes! I just can't wait till they release all other seasons as well. And here are all the directors and guest stars appearing in the third season:

THE TRAP - dir. Michael J. Fox. Starring: Michael J. Fox.

LOVED TO DEATH - dir. Tom Mankiewicz. Starring: David Hemmings, Mariel Hemingway.

CARRION DEATH - dir. Steven De Souza. Starring: Kyle Maclachlan.

ABRA CADAVER - dir. Stephen Hopkins. Starring: Tony Goldwyn, Beau Bridges.

TOP BILLING - dir. Todd Holland (Don't confuse with Tom Holland). Starring: Louise Fletcher, Sandra Bernhard, Jon Lovitz.

DEAD WAIT - dir. Tobe Hooper. Starring: Whoopi Goldberg, James Remar, John Rhys-Davies.

THE RELUCTANT VAMPIRE - dir. Elliot Silverstein. Starring: Malcolm McDowell, Michael Berryman.

EASEL KILL YA - dir. John Harrison. Starring: Tim Roth.

UNDERTAKING PALLOR - dir. Michael Thau. Starring: Graham Jarvis.

MOURNIN' MESS - dir. Manny Coto. Starring: Ally Walker.

SPLIT SECOND - dir. Russel Mulcahy. Starring: Brion James, Michele Johnson.

DEADLINE - dir. Walter Hill. Starring: Marg Helgenberger.

SPOILED - dir. Andy Wolk. Starring: Anthony LaPaglia, Faye Grant.

YELLOW - dir. Robert Zemeckis. Starring: Kirk Douglas, Eric Douglas, Dan Aykroyd, Lance Henriksen.

The third season may not have a big amount of major stars, but the directors, the directors! Even if you are not a fan of chills and thrills, you'd want to check their works here. Have fun!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good selection of episodes...4.5 stars March 22, 2006
By Donald
This is a pretty great selection of episodes. As with any season some episodes are better then others and there are a few duds. This is actually the best season released so far in my opinion, season 2 is good but there are to many zombie revenge episodes.

You may also notice that the episodes here are noticably longer then in season 1 or 2. Most of these episodes run close to the 30 minute mark (Even a 40 minute episode). In previous seasons the episodes only ran around 20-22 minutes. Also, the introduction that was missing in previous seasons is rightfully included. I recommend this for any fan of the show, the extras on this set are alot better then the ones on season 2.

It should also be noted that the box is different then seasons 1 and 2. This one has 2 small dvd cases inside the box rather then a fold out digipack.

4.0 out of 5 stars One Slight Problem - For the DVD Nerd March 21, 2006
I was er...shocked when I recieved my Tales from the Crypt Season 3 Dvds. Why? I'll tell you. For some reason or other, the BEAUTIFUL packaging job that fans i'm sure drooled over in season 1 and 2, is basically GONE! No slip cover, 3 dvd's slammed into 2 thin plastic cases (like every other show does) and no gatefold episode presentations, and to make matters worse, the box stands a little bit higher up then the first 2 seasons. There is a lack of kick ass artwork and the cover isn't even embossed!

They either didn't make enough $$$ or they want to make more $$$, either way, i'm pretty upset. Still a rad show and i'll be buying the other five seasons.

Greetings, boils and ghouls! Are you prepared to feast on the latest boo-fet of blood-curderling tales to tickle your funny bone? Well, I've got just the poison for you: a terrorific total of 14 uncut and uncensored episodes of "Tales from the Crypt." Some creeps say that 3 is a magic number, and there's no doubt that 1991 was THE year of fear for The Crypt Keeper and his many deadtime stories. Even better is the fact that the set's special creature features include interviews, a panel discussion, and a music video of "The Crypt Jam," which was first made to promote the show's original scare soundtrack. So plump up that coffin pillow and settle back your bones. Here are just some of the tales your mother would never tell you.

In "Loved to Death," Andrew McCarthy plays Edward Foster, a freelance screenwriter suffering a gnawing case of writer's block. That changes, however, when he meets Miranda Singer (Mariel Hemingway), an ambitious B-movie actress with a very short fuse. Attracted to her (and envisioning her in one of his naughty celluloid fantasies), Eddie tries to win Miranda over by accepting a powerful love elixer from his sinister landlord (David Hemmings), It was easy to propose a toast and to slip the formula into Miranda's glass of red wine. Unfortunately, the potion works TOO well, and only death can help cure the actress and save poor Ed from her monstrous sex drive.

In "The Trap," Lou Pulloma (Bruno Kirby) is a lazy deadbeat of a husband who beats his wife Irene (Teri Garr) and mooches even his own mother out of every penny she has. In order to escape their financial woes, Lou decides to collect on his life insurance by fabricating his own death, dragging his coroner brother Bill (Bruce McGill) into the scheme.
