‘Tales From the Crypt’ Films Make Blu-ray Debut


More from 1428 Elm

I love Tales From the Crypt.  The original comics were amazing, and I was always a big fan of the cult classic TV series and movies.  There aren’t many characters in horror who are more entertaining than the Crypt Keeper, and I’ve previously expressed my desire for the pun-loving, wise-cracking zombie to make a return.

Having said that, I’m obviously very excited for the upcoming releases of the collector’s edition blu-rays of both Tales From the Crypt feature films, Demon Knight and Bordello of Blood.  I remember Demon Knight really freaking me out when I was younger, while Bordello of Blood was more humorous than anything. As a big fan of the franchise, though, I loved both movies.

From the press release:
