Based on the legendary and gruesome EC Comics from publisher William Gaines, this horror anthology featured stories of murder, the supernatural, gore and humor and always had a twist ending of sorts. Some of Hollywood's biggest names took part, either working in front or behind the camera. Hosting duties fell to everyone's favorite decaying corpse, the Cryptkeeper. The success of this 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. Two feature films ("Demon Knight" and "Bordello Of Blood") were also produced and released in the late 90's. The TV series originally aired on HBO, but was later syndicated to Fox, the Sci-Fi Channel, and most recently AMC. Despite being a short season (only 6 episodes), Season 1 enjoyed the highest ratings in its HBO airings. Two-Disc Collection includes episodes: "The Man Who Was Death," "And All Through The House," "Dig That Cat? He's Real Gone," "Only Sin Deep," "Lover Come Hack To Me" and "Collection Completed." Special Features included on Disc Two.

All-new introduction by the Crypt Keeper, "Tales From the Crypt: From Comic Books to Television", "Crypt Keeper's History of Season One".

I enjoyed this set very much, the sound and picture is outstanding. And all six stories are very interesting. My favorite is "And All Though The House" it scared my seat off! and I also enjoyed "Collection Completed," "Only Sin Deep," and "Dig That Cat... He's Real Gone." Trust me, if you like this show, you'll love this set!

I bought this DVD for my teenage son because he likes scary programs. It is not appropriate for teenagers. Some of the episodes have a lot of nudity.

I liked this DVD a lot. It was my first time watching these episodes because I was always too young when they originally ran. I figured getting the first season was the best place to start because you can see how the show flowed right from the beginning. The first episode is the best in my opinion. Following that, if you take notice to my ratings listed above, the rest of the episodes actually seem to go down hill following that. The second is very good, don't get me wrong, and the third one is pretty enjoyable, but they each start to lose something as they go on. I would still recommend buying this for the person who might've loved it to begin with, or who never saw it, but always heard about it and wanted to check out what all the fuss was over. This was the very first season and there were only 6 episodes. I did some research on them and surprisingly found out that while the other seasons all had 18 or 20-some episodes, most fans of the show generally find these initial 6 to be the best and this to be the best season. I don't know what that means as an indication for the rest of the seasons, but it's still probably worth checking out anyway because one key element that made this show so great was that it always had a bunch of big Hollywood stars in front of and behind the camera. Directors like Walter Hill (The Warriors), Robert Zemeckis (Back To The Future), Richard Donner (Lethal Weapon Series) and others all lend directorial talents to this first season and probably others. Actors like William Sadler (Die Hard 2, Shawshank Redemption, Green Mile) Demi Moore, (Ghost, G.I. Jane, Nothing But Trouble) and Robert Wuhl (Batman, Arliss) all make acting appearances in Season 1. Just be aware, as one reviewer states, there is nudity in some of the epsiodes, namely the 1st and 3rd, with a graphic love scene in the 5th. Young kids shouldn't see it as it may be too offensive. But all in all, atleast enough to get your money out of it. Check it out.
