Greetings earwigs and earworms, Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat with another special treat for you today on day 28 of our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt. We have something for you to listen to instead of just read as I join our own Elwood Jones as well as Daniel Lackey for their new podcast venture TV Good, Sleep Bad where each month they take a look at a couple episodes of cult television. This is only the third episode, but I think they’re off to a great start and they will also be sharing their episodes here on this site so if you like what you hear then come back every month for a new episode. Here we get a little bit animated as we discuss the pilot of the animated spin-off series Tales From the Cryptkeeper as well as a chilling episode that may or may not have inspired 30 Days of Night where it’s not for over a month before it Comes the Dawn.
Episode Titles: Comes the Dawn & While The Cat’s Away
Original Airdates: 1-11-95 & 9-18-93

Greetings ghouls and gargoyles, this is Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat back once again for day 25 of our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt. Today’s episode is brought to you by the Vern from Vern’s Video Vortex and The As You Watch Podcast where on the site he takes a look at films from the new to the trash bin and is always a blast to listen to on his podcast with a bunch of other people. But today he’s going back almost all the way back to the beginning, to one of the first season episodes, one that will get you into the spirit of the holiday. Christmas or Halloween, take your pick, it’s like the Nightmare Before Christmas in that way and not much else, just be sure to turn it up so you can hear it And All Through the House.
Episode Title: And All Through the House
Original Airdate: 6-10-89

Good evening ghosts and goblins, welcome once again to another day in our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt, day 5 to be exact. Where I, your Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat am here to introduce today’s guest blogger who will be taking a look at the very first episode in this series that just so happens to star frequent Tales From the Crypt actor William Sadler who played in two episodes of the show, was a main character in the first movie, and had a small role in the second. As for our host today, he goes by the name Spikor who you may or may not recognize as one of the villains from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. This Spikor writes over at Fat Guy With Glasses where he dispenses his wisdom on books, movies, TV, and of course, action figures. But today he’s here talking about another episode of Tales From the Crypt!
Episode Title: The Man Who Was Death

Welcome to day 4 of the 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt. I’m the host of this blogathon, Bubbawheat and I’m here to introduce this day’s episode brought to you by our own the IPC. While IPC has been away for a bit, I’m sure he will be back with his buddy Scoots to finish talking about the The Six Million Dollar Man, but meanwhile you can also visit his own site Isaacs Picture Conclusions where you can find more of his humor and the occasional (who am I kidding, the frequent) NSFW pics somehow related to horror movies. And if that wasn’t all, he’s also working on a film called Raising Hell. So without further ado, here’s his take on unfortunately one of the lesser quality episodes from the first season which he picked completely by random. Enjoy!
Episode Title: Lover Come Hack to Me
