Possibly my favourite Bluray release this year and long overdue.
Tales from the Crypt is the second in the series of Amicus portmanteau movies and for me, one of the very best.
With five excellent stories that do not outstay their welcome and an outstanding performance from Peter Cushing as Arthur Grimsdyke in his story, the presentation is also cleanly transferred to Bluray fully uncut and even comes with brand new 36 minute documentary on the subject too.
This is a must have and another thumbs up to Final Cut for releasing it. Now please do the same for Vault of Horror!

The best Horror film i ever saw ( as a kid), at long last it's on a Region 2 DVD. All sub stories are great but the performance by Cushing as "Grimsdyke" takes all awards, scared the life outta me when first watched on a late night ITV showing. Each offering being carefully crafted and perfectly presented by a hardcore cast of expertise, how on earth did they get Sir Ralph to play the Crypt Keeper ?? ;-) Buy and enjoy.......

well what can i say?the best british horror,ever!ok.naff all extras but who cares?what you get is a great transfer and some great horror,oh,and a beautiful joan collins.
really,this is that good.if your at the age of remembering these being showed late friday and saturday nights then this is gonna bring a lot of memories back.
forget your big budget hollywood horror,this is the bees knees,and shows british horror may not have loads of money to spend but has great scripts and acting to boot.
buy without delay.you know it makes sense.

I remember being allowed to stay up late and watch these old hammer horrors if only to keep my mother safe ;-) Ooooh they were scary, especially when you're ten! Even today they have a sort of Twilight Zone feeling to them. I recall being blown away with episode with Ian Hendry being involved in a car accident only he got catapulted in to a year later. Great stuff, well made well acted!!!

This is a fantastic transfer to dvd, the picture quality is almost pristine and in the correct aspect ratio 1.85:1
The sound is perfectly clear and audible. Yes, the original crypt keeper is misleading but that's only a niggle compared to what we get on the disc.
All in all, a long awaited release for a fantastic film given the treatment it deserves.

I just received this item the other day and I've already watched it. Amazon yet again deliver on the delivery front in terms of being prompt. This film features greats such as Joan Collins, Peter Cushing, Richard Greene and Nigel Patrick. This one is straight out of Amicus' style of Asylum and the house that dripped blood. 5 people get seperated in an underground crypt and are told of their futures by a mysterious crypt keeper. The stories are intriguing and at times quite chilling in their own right, though most people would find it tame now. It's hard to single out the best story here, so I'll just advise you to buy it and sit back and enjoy!

at long last this movie is on region 2.
the picture quality is excellent. my only complaint is the cover art features the crypt keeper from the 90s series, which is somewhat misleading.

Another great slice of portmanteau horror from Amicus. The format is familiar to fans of this stuff - five characters brought together, in this case in an underground chamber during a tour of some catacoombs. A mysterious cowled figure predicts their future, and so we see a housewife facing Yuletide terror, a car crash in which death isn't quite the end, retribution from beyond the grave for a spiteful neighbour, a gruesome twist on three wishes for a greedy wife, and a bleak tale of revenge set in a home for the blind. Right up there with Vault of Horror and From Beyond the Grave - a box set if ever there was one.
