Good morning creeps and creepettes, Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat back for day 22 of our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt. Today’s rodent is none other than Bernardo Villela who is The Movie Rat where he nibbles on all sorts of film, including plenty of foreign, indie, and documentary titles. Today, he takes a look at one of the episodes that I’m entirely unfamiliar with but sounds infinitely interesting, especially for me considering I have a penchant towards time loops, or might I say a time Whirlpool.
Episode Title: Whirlpool

Hello kiddies, Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat joining you yet again for another round of our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt, gather ’round the computer as our friend theVoid99 recounts the tale of the rocker’s woe. He can usually be found at his haunting grounds Surrender to the Void where he reviews movies of all shapes and sizes past and present, though usually past. Today he’s taking a look at possibly one of his favorite yet one of my least favorite episodes as what happens when the likes of a Yoko Ono takes on a more modern heavy metal band where Heavy D plays a voodoo priest who tattoos not fifteen men, but just one woman On a Deadman’s Chest.
Episode Title: On a Deadman’s Chest

Good morning pests and putrescence, Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat keeping things going right on track for day 20 of our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt. Our next victim comes from Cinefessions where you go to confess all your cinema sins. Oops, sorry that’s something else not affiliated with Cinefessions, forget I said that. As I was saying, over at Cinefessions, Branden along with a few others discuss all types of film as well as have a podcast, and even talk some TV. But today he’s talking about one of the most terrifying episodes of Tales From the Crypt, at least it is if you work in the TV business, you might say it’s a Television Terror.
Episode Title: Television Terror

Welcome back to another day in our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt, I’m your host Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat and on day 19 of our little trip through the back episodes it’s time to introduce yet another blogger to come in and tackle an episode. Today’s guest is Nick Spacek who heads up his own Rock Star Journalist where he tackles a lot of music and is currently in the middle of a horror movie marathon like most movie bloggers this month. The episode that he picked out is one of the more comedic episodes. Personally, I usually enjoyed the comedy in Tales From the Crypt, but was never too fond of the completely comedic episodes including this one, but the performances are still a highlight for My Brother’s Keeper.
Episode Title: My Brother’s Keeper

Good morning boils and ghouls, it’s time for the 18th victim to tell his tale of what happened when he watched an episode of Tales From the Crypt. This time it’s Tony Cogan from Coog’s Reviews where tackles most of the new releases coming out in theaters each week. He’s taking a look at one of the most unique Tales From the Crypt episodes, it’s the only one that’s an hour long instead of the usual 30 minutes as it was one of three originally intended for a movie anthology spinoff. There’s little to no humor in this one outside of the Cryptkeeper’s introduction but it’s one of the all time best episodes of the series about a World War I soldier turning Yellow.
Episode Title: Yellow

Yee-haw kiddies, it’s day 17 of our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt and I’m still your host Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat back for another guest blogger to take a look at another episode of our favorite show. Today’s guest is Jason Soto from Your Face! who is taking a look at a very fun, but also pretty simple tale, so much so that he decided to continue on and look at a bunch of other horror TV shows including some more recent ones. But here’s the deal, we’re going to stick with the hand that’s dealt us and before you shuffle off this mortal coil, ante up, shuffle the deck and it’s time for Cutting Cards.
Episode Title: Cutting Cards

Hello dummies, Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat here to introduce you to yet another one of our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt, day 16 to be exact. Don’t worry about my introduction, it wasn’t meant to offend, but it ties into the episode that we are looking at today, specifically the Ventriloquist’s Dummy which was one of my favorite episodes from season 2. But I’m not the one discussing today’s episode, oh no. Instead we have Nick Rehak from our good friends over at French Toast Sunday where Nick can be found talking about Muppets and making jokes on their weekly podcast. You can also check out his stand up comedy album over at his Bandcamp page. Take it away Dummy, I mean Ventriloquist’s Dummy!
Episode Title: The Ventriloquist’s Dummy

Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat here for the midpoint of our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt. It’s been a lot of fun so far reading everyone’s takes on some of the best and the not-so-good episodes, but we still have several of great episodes on their way. For today’s episode I’m continuing my way through the fifth season where I ended last year and am now up to the fourth episode as the first and third episodes have already been claimed by others. I remembered this one fondly and it was interesting watching it this time as I clearly remembered the twist that actually does change your perception of what’s going on in the episode which isn’t common in most of the Tales From the Crypt twists, how’s that for a little food for thought?
Episode Title: Food for Thought

Good morning bats and gulls, Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat here once again for day 14 of our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt, we’re almost halfway through and it’s time to check out one of the more unusual episodes. Mainly because it doesn’t really feature much horror or sex, but I wouldn’t know for sure as I have yet to make it to many season six episodes and don’t remember this one at all. But luckily our own Elwood Jones picked this one based on the lead actor, you can also find Elwood going back through the episodes of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer when he’s not watching cult movies for his site From the Depths of DVD Hell or cult TV for his podcast TV Good, Sleep Bad. But for now it’s time to tape up your hands, put on your mouthguard, and step into the Pit.
Episode Title: The Pit

Greetings everyone, we’re doing something a little bit different today for day 13. Instead of just looking at a single episode, YouTuber Tyler aka The Whedon Fan put together a top 10 list of his favorite episodes a couple years ago. I enjoyed it quite a bit when I watched it last year and he agreed to let me share it with you here this year. I don’t fully agree with his list, there’s a couple I haven’t seen yet and a couple of my favorites that didn’t make the cut, but they’re all great episodes and many of them have been covered or will be covered right here this year in our own 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt. Enjoy!
