Tales of the crypt has to be my absolute one of my favorite tv shows of all time. The Entrance theme so scared the crap out of me as a kid but I just was in love with ways of how they interrupt a story in a horrifying way. This show is one of the shows that opened doors for other shows like how shows like Night Gallery, Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock Presents opened the door for this one. Tales of the crypt had a very unique way of storytelling and filming.
Tales of the Crypt had phenomenal Actors and Actresses such as Demi Moore, Jeffrey Tambor, Lea Thompson, Joe Pantoliano, John Stamos ( Yes, Uncle Jesse was on Tales of the Crypt) even had Arnold Schwarzenegger directed an episode called “The Switch”.
This goes down in history as one of the best tv franchise of all time.
Tales from the Crypt was actually a movie in 1972. The movie was good as well. It was a original at the time and is a classic. (If you haven’t seen the movie, WATCH IT!!)
If you love this show and wish to see some, they have a few up on youtube.
