If you've been missing the Crypt Keeper, here's a chance to improve your aim! But be warned: the cadaverous cut-up is your host for a 15-episode deathly digest based on classic horror comics from back in the day and featuring a parade of characters who are variously merciless, clueless, topless and headless. Benicio Del Toro, Lost's Terry O'Quinn, Hank Azaria, Shelley Hack, Isaac Hayes, Richard Lewis, John Lithgow, Wayne Newton, Isabella Rossellini, Rita Rudner, Slash and Humphrey Bogart (you read that right) are among the stars. And vampires, mad doctors, killers, ghosts and adulterers are eager to come out and play. We could tell you more, but that would be wrong. You do know rot from wrong, don't you? Prepare yourself for a scareific season six.]]>
Top Customer Reviews
LET THE PUNISHMENT FIT THE CRIME - Catherine O'Hara stars as an ambulance chasing attorney who finds herself on the other side of the law in a horribly strict small town. Peter MacNicol costars. ***
ONLY SKIN DEEP - Peter Onorati plays a sleazy man who picks up a girl at a masquerade party only to find she's not exactly what she seems. **
WHIRLPOOL - Confusing deja vu piece with weak performances from Rita Rudner and Richard Lewis. **
OPERATION FRIENDSHIP - Bizarre little tale about a man whose best friend is really an alterego. Good performances from Tate Donovan and Peter Dobson help. ***
REVENGE IS THE NUTS - Ludicrously silly tale of a doctor who abuses his mental patients. Overacting from Anthony Zerbe is a hoot. **
THE BRIBE - One of the better episodes finds Terry O'Quinn as an honest firechief who takes a bribe to finance his daughter's college tuition, only to have it end in tragedy. Nice twist. ****
THE PIT - Tongue in cheek humor and a role reversal elevates this one where two martial artists seek revenge on their possessive spouses. Mark Dacascos stars. ***
THE ASSASSIN - A predictable twist not withstanding, this wry little tale offers Shelley Hack as the victim of assassins who want to kill her husband. ***
STAIRED IN HORROR - Predictable gothic tale with DB Sweeney as a convict on the run who seeks shelter from a haggish Rachel Ticotin, who is a little different when she goes upstairs.Read more ›
Incidentally, a couple of reviewers reference Stephen Liska as the control freak on the losing side of a one night stand in "Only Skin Deep." That's incorrect, that role was played by Peter Onorati. No big whoop, I know, but just wanted to give credit where credit's due.
Personal favorites from this season are, in no particular order, as follows:
* Only Skin Deep
* Let the Punishment Fit the Crime
* Staired in Horror
* Revenge is the Nuts
* Comes the Dawn
* Doctor of Horror
And I don't care what anybody says, I like "The Assassin" even if it is predictable. I love the whole Donna Reed/Susie Homemaker shtick that Shelley Hack serves up so straight-faced and the clever way everyone was "offed." Good fun. Tales from the Crypt: The Complete Sixth Season
*POSSIBLE MILD SPOILERS*
1. "Let The Punishment Fit The Crime" - Catherine O'Hara plays a big city lawyer who ends up in a backwater courthouse and insanity ensues. A good episode, but a bit surreal for TFTC. Kind of feels like the Twilight Zone, but ok. 3 stars out of 5.
2. "Only Skin Deep" - One of the more memorable episodes from this season. A man meets a masked woman at a Halloween party. Suddenly things become Jacob's Ladder. Interestingly, this is the only Halloween themed episode I can remember. 3 and a half stars.
3. "Whirlpool" - I remember this episode. Harry Anderson goes crazy and his wife wears a dress that looks like a Wonder Bread package. No wait, this is about a different Tales From the Crypt artist. This time the artist is played by Rita Rudner. She goes a little crazy as well, but Richard Lewis is there to comfort her. 3 stars.
4. "Operation: Friendship" - Another Twilight Zone episode. This is when this season started to look low-buck. Nothing against Tales From the Darkside because I love that show, but this looks like TFTD, not TFTC. You are not going to be straining your brain looking for the twist in this one. It's alright... it's just not the level of quality we expect. 2 and a half stars.
5. "Revenge Is The Nuts" - This is the one where Isaac Hayes lives in a home for the blind and the headmaster is a psycho. The entire episode takes place in the dark as well. I felt blind watching it. 2 and a half stars.
6. "The Bribe" - This is, in my opinion, the worst episode in the series' run.Read more ›
