It's that time for another tale from the crypt, my creeps and creepetes. This one lets us explore how one man will go to almost any extreme to get the woman he desires, even if it means spending every dime he has.
Brooklyn-born William Hickey played an elderly man named Carlton Webster. Carlton's wealthy but doesn't have a wife to keep him company. He's always had his eyes on a young woman named Linda, who was played by Kelly Preston. ... Read More

Season two looks to contain many of the same ironic twists and turns that season one did, which follows in the tradition of the source material. The season one DVDs had a great documentary about horror comics. I recommend checking that out when you buy your DVDs.
The first episode in season two starred a very young and beautiful Demi Moore. Demi played Cathy, a secretary who got information from fortune teller who told her that she would lose her ... Read More

Not many shows these days contain a mere six episodes, but that was the case with Tales From The Crypt. This series would prove to be a rather popular one so it makes sense that future seasons were much longer, offering over a hundred spooky tales from the Crypt Keeper's collection.
In the first season finale, we find a 65-year old man named Jonas (M. Emmet Walsh) who has been forced to retire and come home to his wife, Anita (Audra Lindley), ... Read More

Welcome back, kiddies. It's time to look at another one of our tales from the crypt. "Lover Come Hack To Me" proves it's always important to know someone before you literally get into bed with them.
This episode is about a guy named Charles (Stephen Shellen) who has married Peggy (Amanda Plummer) for her money and everyone knows it, except for Peggy. She is a little suspicious, but she's not really made up her mind. Peggy's aunt Edith (Lisa ... Read More

Welcome back, boys and ghouls to another trip back to the crypt. We're still going through that first season of Tales From The Crypt and I find it interesting to see actors who have since become familiar faces. Here, we have Lea Thompson and Brett Cullen, both of whom I've seen them star in many feature films since their early work on Tales From The Crypt.
Lea Thompson plays a sexy, young prostitute, Sylvia Vane, who dreams of something bigger. ... Read More

The third entry in the Tales From The Crypt series was a bizarre one. I wasn't quite sure what to make of it during its start. The idea of someone getting part of a cat implanted in their brain seems crazy. And the claim that it will give the person nine lives is even crazier.
It makes sense for one to use this ability to make money, but one would think he'd be a little more careful when counting the ... Read More

I watched this episode just a week before Christmas and I have to admit that the timing was most excellent. This was Tales From The Crypt's first Christmas-themed episode and I found it to be a little disappointing.
The opening of the episode was superb. The Crypt Keeper was great as was the wonderful Christmas music which took up the first minute or so of the episode. It was a nice, warm start to what would be a bloody TV ... Read More

Now here's a blast from the past. Who doesn't remember Tales From The Crypt? I was pretty young when it began airing on HBO and honestly don't recall any specific episodes. What I remember most about the series is the Crypt Keeper's great laugh. It's hard to forget that.
The series started off its reign of terror in 1989 with an episode starring William Sadler, who just so happens to be a favorite actor of mine. Sadler played ... Read More
