Tales from the Crypt: Season 1

1. The Man Who Was Death
Niles Talbot moved from the country to the big city to get a job as an electrician but ended up as an executioner. His trouble begins when he's suddenly unemployed and decides to take the law into his own hands.

Guest Stars:
Bill Sadler
J.W. Smith
Roy Brocksmith
David Wohl

My Thoughts:
This is of course our first look at the Cryptkeeper so he isn't in any special get-up as he likes to do in many of the episodes.... while this first episode is good... it really didn't impress me as much as many of the other ones did. I just didn't find the story that interesting.

Tales from the Crypt: Season 1

2. And All Through the House
On Christmas Eve a woman slaughters her husband and learns that she's on Santa's naughty list when an escaped maniac dressed as Santa Claus shows up at her doorstep with a special present for her.

Guest Stars:
Mary Ellen Trainor
Larry Drake
Marshall Bell
Lindsey Whitney Barry

My Thoughts:
Of course being a Christmas episode this time we have the Cryptkeeper dressed like Santa. Now this episode I enjoyed more then I did the first one. Matter of fact it remains on of my favorite episodes. This episode also made me a fan of Larry Drake in horrors. I know Christmas is on the way when I watch this episode!
