A few years back I found the HBO show and immediately fell in love. The snarky and (literally) rotten Crypt Keeper introducing and concluding every episode, the gruesome twists of the stories, the unashamedly uncensored content, all the familiar names that were involved either behind or in front of the camera etc. How about an episode directed by Arnold Schwarzenegger, William Friedkin, or John Frankenheimer? Or seeing Judd Nelson giving a dubious steak recipe to Christopher Reeve (co-starring w ...more

I read all of the EC horror comics (Tales From the Crypt, The Haunt of Fear and The Vault of Horror) in order of publication over a course of about two years.

So the review can be found here at: The Complete Tales from the Crypt, and as always I thank you for your consideration!

The plot twists are really predictable most of the times and when they are not, they are usually too cringy, as if the creator is just trying to find a twist that nobody would expect and ends up with something outrageously silly. Maybe it was something during the 50s but it feels too outdated today.

An invaluable piece of American comic book history. My only complaint is that the pages aren't in their original color, but it's something that I can definitely live with in order to be able to read sixty year old comics.
