Starring: Tales From The Crypt
Editor's NoteTelevision executives plugged into viewer's deepest fears with the debut of TALES FROM THE CRYPT in 1989. Its original source material being the EC comic-book, the series originated on HBO, and would go on to run for seven seasons. Hosted by the skeletal Crypt Keeper himself, each episode of the show offered a new, ghoulish tale to give its audience nightmares. The show was such a success that a myriad of CRYPT-inspired spin-offs resulted, including an animated series, several feature-films, and seemingly infinitesimal merchandising opportunities. A popular favorite among horror film fans, TALES FROM THE CRYPT also appeals to anyone who loves the strange and visceral thrill of being scared. The show's complete first and second seasons are included here.
