Product Description

Tales From the Crypt: The Complete Second Season (DVD)

Welcome back, fiends, for more deadtime stories. Settle in with these die-abolical dramas – all 18 uncut (but variously stabbed, electro-volted, haunted, twisted, incarcerated, incarnated, voodoo-ized and even vampirized) episodes from the second season of Tales from the Crypt! The Cryptkeeper is again your gleefully macabre host for a frightfest of classic E.C. Comics stories involving a for-the-money honey (Demi Moore) hoping for a big, fat inheritance; a cartoonist (Harry Anderson) whose creations come to life (and death); a ventriloquist (Don Rickles) and an idolizing wannabe (Bobcat Goldthwait); and poker players for whom a losing hand could mean exactly that. Ante up for these and more tales. They're absolute monsterpieces!


Here are 18 more eye-popping episodes from HBO's shiver-shudder-and-shriek anthology series, adapted from the pages of E.C. Comics' legendary horror comics. Season 2 of Tales from the Crypt doesn't back down from the promise made by its debut season: some of the biggest names in Hollywood do their best in front of and behind the camera to deliver the gory goods, with a healthy dash of Tales' signature coal-black humor. There's Demi Moore as a classic E.C. femme fatale in Howard Deutch's "Dead Right"; Desperate Housewives' Teri Hatcher co-stars with a reanimated corpse in "The Thing from the Grave"; Iggy Pop and the voice of Sam Kinison are featured in a sinister story of music and murder in "For Cryin' Out Loud"; and Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his directorial debut with the macabre "The Switch." Series co-producers Walter Hill and Richard Donner also contribute creepfests, as do horror vets Jack Sholder, Tom Holland, and special effects designer Chris Walas; other performers facing fearsome fates include Patricia Arquette, Don Rickles, Bobcat Goldthwait, Lance Henriksen, and Harry Anderson. The three-disc set definitely delivers a triple treat of terror, but unfortunately, the supplemental features are a little (ahem) anemic, especially in comparison to the solid extras in the first-season set. Here, fans only get a short behind-the-scenes featurette that focuses mainly on actor John Kassir, who provides the Crypt Keeper's voice, and a glimpse at a Tales episode done for radio with Tim Curry. --Paul Gaita

If you were thinking of adding the Tales From the Crypt DVDs to your collection, Season Two is where you should start. This set has 18 episodes and most of them are essential TFTC installments.


1. "Dead Right" - Starring Demi Moore and, hey now!, Jeffrey Tambor in a fatsuit. Demi plays a 1950s waitress with an extremely accurate psychic advisor. This is a great episode. Features a very gruesome murder and a pretty cool twist. 4 Stars.

2. "The Switch" - Solid episode about an old man who spends his fortune modifying his body to win the affections of Kelly Preston. Arnold Schwarzenegger directed and he also hangs out with The Cryptkeeper for a while. "Do you want to be a 90-pound weakling for all of your death?!" 4 Stars.

3. "Cutting Cards" - Classic Tales... about gambling rivals that take things too far. Reminds me a similarly themed episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents. 4 And a Half Stars.

4. "'Til Death" - This one is about a guy who marries a rich woman in the Carribbean. Unfortunately he was also hooking up with a voodoo priestess played by Aunt Viv from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The rich wife goes nuts and it's fantastic. 4 Stars.

5. "Three's A Crowd" - OK, here is one of the weaker episodes of the set. It's about some married guy with a rich friend who pays for everything and hangs out with his wife all the time. I found it borderline-annoying at parts, but the end is very TFTC. 3 Stars.

6. "The Thing From The Grave" - Excellent zombie episode with the smoking hot Teri Hatcher. Miguel Ferrer plays a terrific sleazeball in this as well. 3 And a Half Stars.

7. "The Sacrifice" - Here is one of the most common themes you will find in TFTC: the love triangle.

The Cryptkeeper is back with his usual set of puns and an overall entertaining second season. Here's a quick rundown:
DEAD RIGHT: Demi Moore plays a golddigger who marries a grossly unattractive man (Jeffrey Tambor, virtually unrecognizable in all his latex) because a fortuneteller told her he's going to be a rich man and then die. Nice twist. ****
THE SWITCH: William Hickey plays a wealthy octogenarian who is obsessed with young beautiful Kelly Preston, but she wants a younger man. He doesn't tell her he's rich because he wants her to love him for himself. Hickey goes to a doctor who initiates a bodily switch with muscular Rick Rossovich, but things don't go as well as he thought and he exhausts his fortune with further surgeries. Twist is predictable but Hickey and Rossovich enjoy themselves. ***
CUTTING CARDS: Over the top story of two gamblers who go to extreme measures to outbest each other. Lance Henriksen and Kevin Tighe chew up the scenery effectively. **
TIL DEATH: D.W. MOFFET stars as a greedy land developer who'll stop at nothing to get money. Voodoo ensues. ***
THREE'S A CROWD: Effective tale of a jealous husband who can't get his wife pregnant and suspects her of having an affair with his best friend. Good performances from Gavin O'Herlihy, Ruth DeSosa and Paul Lieber. *****
THE THING FROM THE GRAVE: Nasty Miguel Ferrer murders his fiancee's photographer boyfriend (Kyle Secor) but didn't count on eternal love. Teri Hatcher is the femme fatale. ****
THE SACRIFICE: Kim Delaney sparkles as a dangerous woman who helps her lover (Kevin Kilner) bump off her rich hubby, only to find a blackmailing Michael Ironside in on their scheme.

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, type in Alfred Hitchcock Presents for one hell of a surprise!
