5.0 out of 5 stars Tales From The Crypt - The Complete Second Season, August 8, 2005
This review is from: Tales from the Crypt: Season 2 (DVD)
Oh, the horror, the horror!

The one thing that some of the user reviewers are not addressing about Tales From The Crypt is the adult nature of this former HBO presentation. There are a lot of you out there who have never seen or heard of this program, have seen sanitized versions in syndication, or have just heard whispers of the legend of its reputation as scary stuff. I am here to tell you that this is for the adults in the crowd.

There is SEX and full NUDITY in some of these episodes. There is adult language in many of these episodes that would make the cowboys in "Deadwood" blush. The gore effects - the splattered blood and the slicing and the dicing and the cutting and the chopping and the everything else you can think of - still looks like state-of-the-art horror/terror fun. And to top it all off is the fact that several of the top-level horror/fantasy/action directors, and many A/B level actors/actresses participated in making this a fantastic show with very good acting performances. I'm talking about Richard Donner, Walter Hill, Robert Zemeckis, Tom Holland, and several real surprises.

I am pro-Tales From The Crypt! If you love horror and terror tales this is the show for you. Buy it, love it, and never look back. Just be prepared for the adult content. This show WILL give young children nightmares. It would be child abuse to let a child under the age of thirteen watch the episode "All Through The House." And that is my opinion on one episode from the FIRST season.

As a fan of this kind of stuff you will be amazed when you read the credits of some of the episodes because of the who's who factor.

Have fun. Now all I need is Tales From The Darkside and Friday The Thirteenth The Series on dvd box set. Oh yea, while you are here on Amazon.com, type in Alfred Hitchcock Presents for one hell of a surprise!
