Tales from the Crypt

Tales from the Crypt

Tales of horror based on the gloriously gruesome EC Comics of the 1950's from William Gaines each features a story of murder, the super natural, blood gore and sometimes humor. Some of Hollywood's biggest stars have guess starred on Tales from the Crypt from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Demi Moore, Don Rickles to Christopher Reeves.

The success of the series spawned a Saturday morning cartoon series (Tales from the Cryptkeeper), a short lived Saturday morning game show on CBS (Secrets of the Cryptkeeper's Haunted House) and lots of merchandise. Three feature films (Demon Knight, Bordello of Blood and Ritual) were also produced.

Tales from the Crypt has aired on HBO, Fox, and was in syndication with the Sci-Fi Channel.

this show really gave me goosbumps! It really makes me go under the blanket covering from head to toe while sleeping because whenever I watched a single episode I remember it before I sleep. Hahaha! This is really scary!!! Hosted by the cryptkeeper which have me goosebumps also! I miss this show so very much that’s why I purchased a DVD collection at www.yourdvdcorner.com - it was an excellent buy (fast shipping, complete episodes, great DVD quality. Now I’m tyring to scare my little nephews and nieces and letting them see this whenever they try to visit our house. I have always been a fan of the series ang until now I still watch it every late night. If you want really scary horror stories, you should watch Tales from the Crypt! Well, "Good night boils and ghouls." –cryptkeeper Read more
