Tales From the Crypt
- 7 Seasons
Tales From the Crypt is based on a comic book series of the same name and many episodes do come from those comic books. The show is hosted by The Crypt Keeper, a puppet like creation made to be reminiscent of a rotting zombie like creature. Each episode has a different story and cast. These episodes are not family friendly and parental guidance is strongly recommended as a rating system would likely put the show at MA. As the show originally aired on HBO, there was very little censorship. There is graphic violence which includes gore. There is also profanity, nudity, sexual situations, etc. The stories all begin with The Crypt Keeper introducing the episode using bad puns. The episodes are meant to be scary. They do tend to achieve a creepy feel, but whether they are scary depends on one's fondness of horror movies and supernatural books. The episodes also have familiar faces, many feature actors and actresses who were then, or later, achieved A-list status.
