Five people are trapped in a crypt and are shown their futures by the evil cryptkeeper. They are given the option of avoiding their fates – by avoiding living out the rest of their lives.
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. 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 were baffling, scare and mystify the viewers. They work well in the omnibus format instead of stretching them to fill a half hour worth of screen time. Stars Peter Cushing, Joan Collins, Patrick Magee and Sir Ralph Richardson as the crypt keeper. Highly recommended.
