I'm not old to enough to remember the EC comic series Tales From the Crypt. In fact, I've never read a single one of them. My experience of TftC comes the TV series which ran on HBO from 1989-1996. I used to watch each episode I could, my family did not have cable at the time. Strangely enough I was able to see the majority when their aired. Thanks to DVD, I've now seen every delicious episode.
The show had it all: Scares, comedy, nudity, gore, and just over all good fun. Several top notch talent in Hollywood (actors and directors) lent their hands in the series. It was a fine show that ran for seven seasons and should live on through DVD.
