Editorial Reviews

Television viewers got a fright in 1989 when TALES FROM THE CRYPT made the transition from EC comic book to TV show. Hosted by the Cryptkeeper each episode of the show offered a new ghoulish tale for the audience to sink their teeth (or fangs) into. The show originated on HBO and all six episodes from the first season are included here. It was such a success that myriad CRYPT-inspired spinoffs resulted including an animated series several feature films and seemingly infinite merchandising opportunities. A popular favorite among horror-film fans TALES FROM THE CRYPT also appeals to viewers who love the visceral thrill of jumping out of their seats as terrifying scenes unfold in front of them. The first six seasons of the show are gathered on this collection.Format: DVD MOVIE Genre: TELEVISION/SERIES & SEQUELS UPC: 012569754201 Manufacturer No: 75420

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Horror Show ever! July 4, 2013
Verified Purchase
Tales from the crypt is the best horror show ever made. HBO was stupid to cancel it.

I was terrified of the crypt keeper when I was a kid.

You get all 6 seasons for a real fair price.

There not much to say except that show rocks and that it is a must have for any horror nut.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Horror Series Ever! October 28, 2011
By Nay
When I was a little girl, the Cryptkeeper scared the crap out of me. I'd hide behind my dad's recliner when he'd turn it on and cry every time I heard that cackling laugh.

Now that I'm older, I have grown to appreciate this show. I started reading the comics and I was hooked (a link to the comics is at the bottom of this review). The series is taken mainly from the 3 EC horror comic titles (Tales From The Crypt, The Vault Of Horror, and The Haunt Of Fear), but other titles from the EC series are used too. Tons of famous stars make guest appearances, from Brad Pitt to Tim Curry. The stories are scary, and the Cryptkeeper is a fabulous host. John Kassir brings him to life (ha!) beautifully. Beware, the CryptKeeper loves puns and can be corny sometimes. Also, this show is not for children; it's filled with blood, gore, and sex. Whether you're a fan of the comics or just a horror fan looking for something entertaining, this show is for you.

Don't forget to buy the last season too (there are 7 seasons)!

I was so happy to find this box set available, watching tales from the crypt bought back a lot of great memories. I have to admit i've been disappointed many times when I bought a series or a movie I really enjoyed watching when I was a child but I have to say this did not happen with Tales from the crypt , I'm so glad I have this collection, a true classic :-)
