by Ian Wells

This week I want to do a very condensed version of how the Comic Code came in affect, who the major players were, how it changed the industry and how the code evolved over time. Then I will look at the value of some Pre and Post Code comics and also look at some comics […]

Tales from the Crypt 2×08 – “For Cryin’ Out Loud” Review

by Nathan Smith

Original air date – May 22nd, 1990 Let me tell you when I knew I’d be covering this episode next, I got very happy. It makes all the other episodes that I’d gone through totally worth it, because this is where the turning point truly hits for me. Everything about this episode works for me, […]

Tales from the Crypt 2×07 – “The Sacrifice” Review

by Nathan Smith

Original airdate – May 15th, 1990 There’s a reason I don’t usually remember the Tales From the Crypt episodes with no supernatural leanings – it’s because they’re bland. Look, every episode, you’ll find a single certainty: there’s going to be someone getting killed or someone deserving of some major cosmic comeuppance, and then they get […]

Tales from the Crypt 2×06 – “The Thing from the Grave” Review

by Nathan Smith

Original airdate – May 8, 1990 If there’s a single plot element that Tales from the Crypt has mined with varying success, it’s the jilted, jealous lover plotline. Someone wants someone, and somebody may already have that somebody, and add violence to that mix and you’ve got yourself a mixture that fits right on the […]

Tales from the Crypt 2×05 – “Three’s A Crowd” Review

by Nathan Smith

Original airdate – May 1st, 1990 I have memories of this episode from back before I re-watched it after I bought the DVD some years ago. It was on my local FOX affiliate and during the commercial breaks, I recall seeing advertisements for Demon Knight, and that satiated my thirst for something more, a film […]

Tales from the Crypt 2×04 – “Til Death” Review

by Nathan Smith

Original airdate: April 24th, 1990 Voodoo and zombies. If ever there was a cocktail inherent to fit the mold of a Tales From the Crypt episode, that’d be it. Hell, there was even a film called “Ritual” released a while back that was all about the voodoo they do. It’s the first episode of the […]

‘Tales From the Crypt 2×03: Cutting Cards’ Review

by Nathan Smith

‘Cutting Cards’ may be one of the best episodes of Tales from the Crypt out there. It’s not necessarily horror but still has overtones of it, especially in the last third. Overall, it’s just a pitch black comedy in the guise of two-hander (fitting words for how the episode ends, eh?) between two titans of […]

‘Tales From the Crypt 2×02: The Switch’ Review

by Nathan Smith

Out of all the episodes in seven seasons of Tales From the Crypt, this particular entry, ‘The Switch,’ feels less like an episode of the titular show and rather more like a twisted moral play. It’s a play about the vain and how changing yourself for someone isn’t necessarily the right nor best thing to […]

‘Tales From the Crypt 2×01: Dead Right’ Review

by Nathan Smith

Two things stick out very vividly in memory from watching ‘Dead Right’ early on in my youthful days late, late Saturday nights (right after my local news). One, Demi Moore was a foxy chick. She was a two-sided coin, gorgeous and tough edged. A totally memorable girl. And two, Jeffery Tambor, long before he became known to […]
