The Best Tales from the Crypt Episodes (While Looking at Their Origins)
Ah, Tales from the Crypt. I grew up watching them in the 80s and 90s alongside many other people (including kids). The best Tales from the Crypt episodes had a Twilight Zone charm that also catered to a horror fix that many of us needed. It scratched an itch.
Over time I am reviewing individual episodes of the original HBO Tales from the Crypt series. And at the same time, I am looking back at the original 1950s comic books that were being adapted, as well as examining social contexts or discussing them in the context of the horror tropes used and other horror that exists.
