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

I was an adolescent when this series was on television. Some of my favorite episodes were and still is ©Dead Right, ©The Switch, ©For Cryin' Out Loud, ©The Ventriloquist's Dummy & ©Korman's Kalamity.
And, those were the episodes I remembered. There are a few episodes that are worth checking out that I didn't see because I was in school or my mom wouldn't let me because of the content.
©Judy, You're Not Yourself Today
A woman is warned by her husband not to open the door for strangers but as most wife's do or should I say don't listen decides to let in an elderly woman that seems harmless. Well, that's where everything starts and she switches bodies due to an amulet that intrigues Judy.
Let me start off by saying, " I love Patricia Arquette(Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors)" is the reason why I got to know this actress. A teenage girl is being held captive against her will but comes to grips with her situation because of a scarecrow that she believes comes to life. It was a little twisted[plot] but all and all a great episode.
I enjoyed this episode because it was the only one with a predominantly all black cast. And, it definitely shows how tough it is being black in America, especially after losing both parents to a tragic accident. Then, having to go live with a relative that doesn't really care about that individual's problems. Also getting put to work in the family business for room and board.
Last thing, if you've ever been a fan of the show its a must have because it makes up for such a short Season 1(6 Episodes) and it's very funny...
