E.C.'s most popular comic book comes to the big screen!

Tales From the Crypt (1972) was the first (and best) adaptation of E.C.'s most popular and beloved comic book. These tales were taken straight out of the original panels and they're very faithful to the original stories. Unlike the overrated and lame cable t.v. version that made a mockery out of the original source, this film from Amicus paid tribute to TALES FROM THE CRYPT in such a way that put's the H.B.O. version to shame.

These tales are baffling, scary and mystify. They work well in the omnibus format instead of stretching them out to fill a half hour worth of screen time. I also liked the original crypt keeper, he was more like the comic book character as well instead of some animated corpse. Now availible on DVD with the sequel Vault of Horror.  Stars Peter Cushing, Joan Collins, Patrick Magee and Sir Ralph Richardson as the crypt keeper.

Highly recommended.
