Tales from the Crypt: the Complete Fifth and Sixth Seasons

Overview

Produced by George A. Romero after the success of Creepshow, this 1980s anthology series boasted a shocking tale every week. Unnerving synth lines and bare-bones production values were hallmarks of the syndicated program, which tended toward supernatural plotlines but also included sci-fi and comedy in its uncanny netherworld. Frequently, its material came adapted from horror's most popular authors, including Stephen King, Clive Barker, and Harlan Ellison. And, in Twilight Zone fashion, it relished throwing a cruel twist at its characters by every episode's end. This collection presents all 13 episodes from the show's fifth season, including those starring guests Steve Buscemi, Roger Daltrey, Traci Lords, David Paymer, , Martin Sheen, and Billy Zane, plus 15 episodes from season six with guest stars Hank Azaria, Isaac Hayes, Richard Lewis, John Lithgow, Wayne Newton, Isabella Rossellini, and Rita Rudner.
