    Creepy, yet

    By T_VFan, May 11, 2012

    cool! Something you can watch over and over and never get bored. The visual effects were extra unique for the 90's. Great story line. Loved this show as a kid.

    One heck of a show!

    By Queshin, Feb 24, 2012

    Tales from the Crypt is a great show and I highly recommend this show to horror anthology fans. But the best part about this show would have to be the Crypt keeper since he is so entertaining and makes the show very interesting. I also I really enjoy the very original episodes and how every time the Crypt keeper introduces us a story he gets his big book out. ( If you are wondering Tales from The Crypt is base off of comic books from the 50's.) I find that this show is full of surprises and will always give a shock!moreless

    This show used to scare me to death!

    By LOSTismylife, Nov 20, 2011

    Tales From the Crypt was very original. It was very twisted and creepy! I don't know how many hours of sleep this show caused me to lose! The Crypt Keeper was so scary! Freaky! The episodes were really scary too! The writers had some extremely twisted minds. But I have to admit they were original. One of my favorite episodes is where guy trades places with a cat. And he gets nine lives and starts doing all kinds of fatal stunts. And while doing his final stunt (being burried alive) he thinks he still has one life left. But it turns out that he miscounted and that he's using up his last life. The episode is better than I made it out to be. Anyways, I was just summarizing the episode to prove how original the series was. Truly a classic. Tales From the Crypt will continue to scare me throughout the rest of my life.moreless

    The reason i lost so many hours of sleep as a kid

    By Nellyson, Nov 20, 2011

    I loved this show when I was a little kid. I would stay up really late on weekends and catch this show watching it alone in the dark in my room. It would scare the heck out of me and then I would shut the tv off and lay in bed wondering why I would want to do this to myself every weekend. The show wasn’t really that scary unless of course your really young, but the stories always seemed to be able to creepy me out. This is a throwback that really reminds me of being a young kid. The crypt would come out and talk about the story that was about to unfold and I knew I would be in for another long sleepless night.moreless

    I loved this show

    By NathanRoth, Jun 09, 2011

    This show scared the crap out of me when i was a kid with its horrifying stories and twists.the crypt keeper used to make me laugh with his clever puns dismemberment.some of the stories ended with a weird twist.sometimes they didn't end scary either but they had good plots that made them really horrifying. The only thing that is sad is that the show had to end on a bad note this show should have lasted for ten seasons with more scary stories.this show was so great they made three movies after the show was canceled i would love to see another show like this.moreless

    This is, and always will be, one of my absolute favorite TV shows of all time. Tales from the Crypt is a show like no other.

    By Spongemario, Jun 09, 2011

    This show was a great one. It either mixed horror and humor, gore and drama, or anything with the mix of science-fiction, horror, humor, gory, unusual, etc. With mainly different actors and directors for each episode, minus the Crypt Keeper himself of course, this show was almost never the same, in a good way. There was no central plot, just something great to watch. Some episodes can leave you on the edge of your seat, others just make you try to think what just happened. Either way, this is a great show. Even though it's been virtually off the air for nine years, even though it started a couple years before I was born, I still love this show. I'm glad we're getting a DVD release of the first season, and hopefully DVD releases of the others.

    But looking at *some* of today's shows, I wouldn't want any new episodes. I could watch all the classic episodes and never get bored of them.

    Now on to the Crypt Keeper. This guy is just hilarious! John Kassir has the perfect voice for the perfect horror show host.

    I would recommend Tales from the Crypt to any TV fan.moreless

    It has horror and gore an is funny at the same time. Who doesn't love that!!!

    By aleidis, Feb 14, 2011

    Tales from the crypt are stories told by the cryptkeeper. The stories are horror stories with some gore and are also very funny. You have to love the oneliners from the cryptkeeper. There are also a numbre of movies from tales from the crypt like bordello of blood. there are a lot of episodes with famouse actors like whoopi goldberg, billy zane, ... The tales are based on some gruesome comics from the 50's.

    The first episode was aired on the 10th jone of 1989.

    The show was nominated for 7 Emmy's. the shows are about one hour each and are very fun the watch.moreless

    A great HBO show that mixed terror, drama and even comedy.

    By malcovio, May 04, 2008

    Tales from the Crypt was a beloved, grusome comic book in the 1950s' and many years later it was turned into one of the most entertaining shows on TV. I remember watching syndicated, censored versions of this show on Saturday afternoons and loving every minute of them. When I learned one day that they were actually being aired new on HBO, I was suprised. Now that the seasons are on DVD, I can see every single one totally uncensored in their original form. It was an incredible show that I will remember for the rest of my life. HBO should bring it back dammit! Maybe that would take them out of their current hole.moreless
