And this wraps it up; the glorious 1989-1996 seven season run of the best pay cable anthology show ever to grace the airwaves is finally complete on DVD.

This season many feel lacked in detail but I completely disagree, there are quite a few gems in this finale, let me explain why it is a very unique finish to the series; the show moved production to the United Kingdom and used only a British cast of respected actors thus giving the series a different atmosphere to work with.

Episodes such as "Cold War" with a young Ewan McGregor, "Horror in the Night" and "About Face" stand out just as worthy as any previous season classic.

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 the final season 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. Alas...by 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. Hence, The Cryptkeepr "killed" production of the show after season 7.

Airing first in 1989 and finishing out in 1996, by the fifth season I've always thought that it would have been cool if the producers 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.

This is it, the final season of the greatest horror anthology franchise of all time. Season Seven is where it ended and it's clear The Cryptkeeper was fed up with Hollywood at this point. So, much like Al Bundy before him, he decided to take a trip to the motherland, and set off for old London town. Season Seven is an entirely British production. Unfortunately, this season is regarded as the worst. It's true, the series went out on a bad note. But if you dig you can find a couple of horror nuggets among the rubbish. Let's take a look.

*** POSSIBLE MILD SPOILERS ***

1. "Fatal Caper" - The season opener featured the great Bob Hoskins so it should have been better. This is a drama about a rich man's will and the lengths his family will go to collect on it. I consider this a weak episode. The twist at the end had been done before in the previous season and was laughable. 1 and half Stars.

2. "Last Respects" - In contrast to the bore that was the opener, "Last Respects" is a killer. It's about 3 young ladies that own an occult shop. They find a cursed monkey paw, and let's face it, how could you go wrong from there. I like this installment quite a bit. 4 Stars.

3. "A Slight Case of Murder" - And now on PBS, a British thriller starring Mrs. Doubtfire as a mystery author. Oh wait, I thought this was HBO, I thought I was watching Tales From The Crypt. Awful. 1 and a half Stars.

4. "Escape" - This is a somewhat OK episode about POW's in WWII. But it doesn't necessarily feel like TFTC. By the appalling standards of Season Seven, however, this is actually pretty good. 3 Stars.

5. "Horror In The Night" - Imagine if one of the jewel thieves in Snatch had been shot and later died in a hotel room and went to Hell.

The seventh, and final, season of HBO's Tales From the Crypt was bittersweet to say the least. Though no one wanted to see the horror anthology's demise, the series had grown tired over the past couple seasons (and two feature films), and by the time the seventh season came to an end, it was good to see the show go without wearing out it's welcome. There are some exceptional episodes to be found here, including "Cold War" starring a pre-Jedi Ewan McGregor in a twisty role, "Ear Today...Gone Tomorrow" in which a safecracker seeking a new lease on his old job gets more than he bargained for, "Confession" which features Eddie Izzard as a suspect in a series of grisly serial killings, and the last episode, the fully animated "The Third Pig" which puts a grisly and gory spin on the the Three Little Pigs. Other episodes, like "Smoke Wrings" (featuring a young Daniel Craig), and "Fatal Caper" (featuring a cunning Natasha Richardson) are solid enough as well, so the overall season is a winner like the ones that came before it. All in all, the Cryptkeeper may have finally gotten laid to rest, but as the final season of Tales From the Crypt proves, he's still worth digging up now and again.
