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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The penultimate season June 26, 2007
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

3.0 out of 5 stars TIRED TALES July 31, 2007
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Greetings, Fright Fiends! April 27, 2007
The Tales From The Crypt series was some of the best television airing back in the final years 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. the sixth season the directorial effort and actor ambition had waned, and The Tales From The Crypt series was startin' to look a bit long in the fang.

Airing first in 1989 and finishing out in 1996, season six of the seven-season series follows season 5...where the producers should have initially considered bringing in some adaptations of modern short stories from the likes of Stephen King and Dean R. Koontz, because the best EC Comic stories were done in seasons one through four. But I guess the producers felt it was taboo to stray from the EC Comics classics. (In my review of Tales 5 {that mirrors this review almost exactly, with the exception of the individual episode puns} a commenter said that, "part of the TV deal with William Gaines was that all of the Tales From The Crypt episodes had to be based on EC Comics stories."

That's too bad, because the following episodes were good...but just good. Not seasons 1 - 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's as good as season 4 in my opinion. That is a GOOD thing.
Look Season 6 is known as one of the weaker seasons. I think in some episodes it lacks but on a whole season 6 is as good as season 4. It has quite a few classics. Read more
