  • Off to a weak start.

    How best to start off a new Tales from the Crypt series? Well, it looks like someone said "Cram as many monsters in as you possibly can!" We get Frankenstein's monster, a werewolf, a mummy, zombies, vampires, even a giant octopus. But what we don't get is a good story.



    Two kids decide to break into a house so they can buy a bike. Two annoying kids who do nothing to win our sympathy, I should add. That's it in terms of plot.



    The animation is a mixed bag. I liked the thick shadows that became frequent in cartoons of the mid-to-late 90's and the spooky mansion is filled with great atmosphere. But the creatures are laughable in their design.



    And the ending. The ending! I know it probably seemed clever and witty on the page, but please!moreless
