TALES FROM THE CRYPT
What would happen if there were Siamese twins, and one was good and the other was evil? Or if a serial killer was parading around dressed as Santa? Or if a cat gland was implanted in a homeless guy's brain? Or if a radio-talk-show host committed murders for ratings? Or if an aging model killed her younger competition? Or if a vampire was fired from his job at the local blood bank? Just make your way through the door, down the hallway, and into the basement, then turn the channel to HBO, which allowed gore hounds Robert Zemeckis, Richard Donner, Joel Silver, and Walter Hill to hatch this wickedly adult anthology, inspired by the EC Comics of old.
