Tales from the Crypt: The Complete Fifth Season (DVD)

Full of fun and frights, the fifth season of Tales from the Crypt features a happily haunted collection of scares and silliness for viewers warm and bleeding (sorry, breathing.) Ready to delight the feverishly warped mind are "Forever Ambergris," with Boardwalk Empire's Steve Buscemi and The Who's Roger Daltrey portraying war photographers; "Two for the Show," with Traci Lords, David Paymer and Vincent Spano embroiled in a tale of wife and death; "Well Cooked Hams," with Martin Sheen and Billy Zane putting hocus pocus in focus as rival magicians; plus 10 more eerie encounters of fate, fiends and flat-out funniness, featuring Bill Paxton, Brooke Shields, Tim Curry, Wil Wheaton, John Stamos and even Batman's Adam West. Don't miss out as the Crypt Keeper delivers more keepers (and terrorific puns) in the atmos-fearic fifth season.

What's that? You say there's not enough fright in your life? Well, let your old fearsome friend, the Crypt Keeper, put some pep into your tired blood with another lucky 13 episodes of Tales from the Crypt, the shock-show series based on the infamous E.C. horror comics of the 1950s. As with Crypt's previous seasons, the gruesome formula in the 1993 Season 5 remains the same: Half-hour episodes rife with murderous spouses, the walking dead, and horrific twists of fate, liberally spiced up with gallons of gore and nudity, and featuring some of Hollywood's most famous faces behind and in front of the camera. The season's hellacious highlights are probably Gary Fleder's "Forever Ambergris," with Steve Buscemi and the Who's Roger Daltrey as rival combat photographers whose competition comes to a sticky end courtesy of exposure to chemical weapons; and the season opener, "Death of Some Salesman" (by Gilbert Adler, who later helmed the Crypt theatrical feature Bordello of Blood), with Tim Curry in three roles as a rural family with a big surprise for a duplicitous con man (Ed Begley Jr.). Elsewhere, actor Kyle MacLachlan directs Hector Elizondo and Patsy Kensit in the noirish "As Ye Sow"; Highlander's Russell Mulcahy oversees Bill Paxton and Michael Lerner in the grisly revenge tale "People Who Live in Brass Hearses"; and Kevin Hooks unleashes Traci Lords and David Paymer in "Two for the Show," a classic E.C. story of henpecked husbands and overheated wives, with a splattery switcheroo at its conclusion. Entourage's Kevin Dillon, Martin Sheen, Brooke Shields, Lou Diamond Phillips, John Stamos, and Cheech Marin are also featured in the ghoulish goings-on, with Gregory (Rescue Me) Widen, the late Jeffrey Boam (The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.), and Uli Edel (Last Exit to Brooklyn) among the other directors orchestrating the on-screen mayhem. John Kassir, the voice of the Crypt Keeper, returns to provide narration for the set's sole extra, a "virtual comic book" that features the original comic on which "Salesman" was based. -- Paul Gaita

I have to say this is probably my favourite season. With brilliantly creepy "Death of Some Salesman", truly disturbing "Forever Ambergris", traditional yet surprising "House of Horror" and Psycho-esque "Came the Dawn", with all those great actors and well-known to horror buffs directors the fifth season really stands out among all others. Everyone can find a tale according to his taste here.

By it's fifth season, HBO's Tales From the Crypt had more that established itself as the greatest horror/thriller anthology of it's era. The 13 tales featured in this season don't boast many of the big name horror directors of seasons past, but there's still plenty to love here. Ed Begley Jr. plays a con man who gets way, way more than he bargained for in "Death of Some Salesman"; which also features the great Tim Curry in multiple roles and was directed by Gilbert Adler who would go on to do the much maligned Bordello of Blood. "Forever Ambergris" features The Who's Roger Daltrey and Steve Buscemi as rival war photographers, who naturally get a taste of war and hell unlike either could ever imagine. "House of Horror" features Kevin Dillon as a frat leader breaking in new pledges (including Will Wheaton), Ernie Hudson stars as a gluttonous, evil man in "Food For Thought", "Creep Course" features Jeffrey Jones as a history teacher with a diabolical scam who gets the tables turned on him, and "Half-Way Horrible" is a season favorite featuring Clancy Brown as an unscrupolous businessman that finds his way into voodoo. All in all, there's plenty of blood, guts, laughs, and thrills to behold in the fifth season of Tales From the Crypt, and chances are that if you loved the series, this is already on your buy list.

I am currently watching some of the episodes of this season, but if you watch the entire opening sequence of the DVD before selecting from episodes, play, etc, they give away the twist endings for a few of the episodes. For season 6 & 7, PLEASE WB, put back the Crypt Keeper where you can select an episode.

I choose this rating because the TV show is good. What I like about the TV show is that tomb it may concern. Yes, you. No one else is reading this, right? Besides, you're the ideal person for this happily haunted collection of scares and silliness someone warm and bleeding. Sorry, breathing. The Cryptkeeper delivers more keepers (and terrorific Spookcial Feartures) with this atmosfearic Season 5. Ready to delight your feverishly warped mind are Forever Ambergris, with Steve Buscemi and Roger Daltrey portraying war photographers; Two for the Show, with Traci Lords, David Paymer and Vincent Spano embroiled in a tale of wife and death; Well Cooked Hams, with Martin Sheen and Billy Zane putting hocus pocus in focus as rival magicians; plus 10 more eerie encounters of fate, fiends and flat-out funniness. Lullaby and good fright, kiddies! What I dislike about the TV show is that I wanted to see more of it. I would recommend this TV show to other people.

Every season has at least one clunker. You have Showdown from Season 4, Deadline from season 3 and to a point Cutting Cards from season 2. But IMO season 5 really is overall perfect. Not a bad episode in the bunch. Let's take a look at the episodes.

Death Of Some Salesman - Tim Curry's brilliant performance on 3 different characters is just one of the few highlights of this opener. A salesman picks the wrong family to try to con. It's brilliant and creepy. Probably the best premier in the history of the show. Perfect. 4 out of 4

As Ye Sow - One of the more serious episodes of the season. Hector Elizondo stars as a husband who thinks his wife is cheating on him with a priest. Well done episode, good performances and trademark twist ending. A little slow at times but all in all this is a great effort. 3 out of 4

Forever Ambergris - A washed up photgrapher plans a scheme to take him out and get with his wife. Easily the most gruesome episode of Crypt. Seriously this is pretty gross. Some of the scenes are the most memorable of the whole series. Brilliant. 4 out of 4

Food For Thought - Ernie Hudson chews up the scenery in this one. He plays a clown who can read minds. There is a lot of jealousy here. Not a memorable one till the gross out finale. But the last couple minutes really make this episode stand out. Great. 3.5 out of 4

People Who Live In Brass Hearses - Two brothers plan to rob the ice cream truck man. They will regret it. Loved it. It was campy and over the top. It was very tales. The finale is gruesome and full of twists. 4 out of 4

Two For The Show - I loved this episode. A man kills his wife and hides her in a trunk. He takes her on a train as a cop is after him. Another one with a brilliant finale.
