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".
