Inspired by the controversial E.C. Comics of the 1950s--which also provided the title and
inspiration for the popular Tales from the Crypt TV series--director George Romero and
screenwriter Stephen King serve up five delightfully frightful stories. Utilizing
comic-book panels, animated segues, and exaggerated lighting and camera angles, Romero and
cinematographer Michael Gornick come very close to replicating a horror comic in film
format. The results mix fine acting with the morbid sense of humor and irony that made the
E.C. books so popular in their heyday. Actors such as Leslie Nielsen, Hal Holbrook, Ted
Danson, Adrienne Barbeau, Ed Harris, E.G. Marshall, and even King appear in the stories,
which include tales of a sinister father's day celebration, a mysterious meteor,
seaweed-draped zombies, a monster in a crate, and a cockroach-phobic millionaire.
Fiendishly fun fare from one of horror's most famous directors.
Five tales of horror, gore, and morbid humor, written by Stephen King and
directed by George A. Romero. The film's style is a tribute to E.C. Comics, the
horror\camp comic books popular in the 1950s. Beware (or watch for) a scene featuring
hundreds of cockroaches!!
