HBO's Tales from the Crypt one of the best series ...Rating: 2 likes, 0 dislikes
Even better than "The Sopranos" TALES FROM THE CRYPT had a bit of everything from sex, gore,drama, suspense and action.
Originally it wasn't planned to be a series but it proved to be a wise choice by HBO and creators to make it a weekly series.
Every season has different stories and surprises to offer. Unlike "The Sopranos" this show was decent till the end plus the multitude of stars in this from Lea Thompson, William Sadler, Larry Drake, Michael Ironside and big time producers and directors like Richard Donner and Robert Zemeckis and well you know this show had something to offer.
With that said the DVD boxsets for this series is poor and lackluster having almost no extra featuers aside from a virtual comic and narration by the Cryptkeepr for such a beloved series it deserved better.
Anyhow, if you are in for a screaming great time filled with decent acting, storylines and scares then "Tales From Crypt" is for you. In my opinion, it will always stand out above anything else on HBO primarily as well because it was one of the first series that the show took on.
