Sorry, still no Blu-ray announcement.
All seven seasons of HBO’s horror anthology series “Tales from the Crypt” have finally been collected together for the very first time in a new DVD set that’s set to hit shelves on June 20th. Every single episode of the series will be housed inside of a special gift box, making the set a must-purchase for anyone who hasn’t yet begun collecting the individual seasons.
If you already own the seasons, on the other hand, there doesn’t seem to be any reason to double dip. From what we gather, this new offering brings together the previously released season sets, but doesn’t actually add anything new to the mix – aside from allowing you to grab the whole series in one fell swoop.
Your favorite deadtime stories return from the grave in the spook-tacular “Tales from the Crypt”: The Complete Series. Cadaverous scream legend the Crypt Keeper hosts this groundbreaking anthology of macabre masterpieces featuring vampires, mad doctors, killers, ghosts, and other terrifying makers and corpse creators. Based on the tasteless and terrifying E.C. Comics classics, the show featured top-tier film talent, including Richard Donner, Joel Silver, Robert Zemeckis and Frank Darabont – even Arnold Schwarzenegger helmed an episode!
Add up-and-coming nineties actors Daniel Craig, Whoopi Goldberg, Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt, and others, then edit in resurrected Hollywood greats like Humphrey Bogart and Alfred Hitchcock, and fans of twisted, dead-on humor were glued to their screens. Now, gathered together in one creepy collection for the first time, all the frightful fun of the original uncut episodes deemed too racy for television broadcast, plus loads of eerie extras, is yours until the day you die laughing!
