Episode Title? The Dark at the End of the Tunnel
Originally Aired: March 18th 2016
The penultimate episode of the season is upon us and it was at full stride from the second it opened. The only recurring character that does not have something important to do is Claire; everyone else has his or her life changed in some way. Continue reading Daredevil S:02 E:12
We’re almost at the end of our run kiddies, but Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat is here once again to introduce yet another guest blogger for day 29 of our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt. He’s Markus who runs his site called The Marckoguy who tends to have a similar penchant for superhero movies that I do, but also mixes it up with plenty of classics and some current movies as well. Interestingly enough, I didn’t even realize until today that we had a Michael Ironside double feature as he also appeared in yesterday’s Comes the Dawn. As Markus was a Tales From the Crypt virgin, I had a few suggestions of some of my favorites, watching television isn’t always fun and games, sometimes you have a little fun, and sometimes it doesn’t always turn out quite the way you want it to and you just have to make The Sacrifice.
Episode Title: The Sacrifice

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

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

Day 11 already? It must be time to roll out of the grave for another day in our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt. Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat here again to introduce yet another in our line of guest bloggers taking a look at an episode of this great HBO series. Today we have M. Brown from Two Dollar Cinema where he can usually be found giving his Yays and Boos at various not-quite new releases. But today he’s looking at one of the more fun episodes with a couple cringe-inducing moments, especially if you don’t like seeing anything going in someone’s ear. It also has a few recognizable faces in the episode and one very recognizable voice if you were a fan of stand-up comedy in the late 80’s/early 90’s For Cryin’ Out Loud.
Episode Title: For Cryin’ Out Loud

We’re already up to day 10 of our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt, seems like only yesterday that we started this trip down memory lane. Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat here once again to introduce the next ghoulish blogger to take on yet another episode of the series. Today’s guest is Wendell from Dell on Movies where he can be found checking out all sorts of movies including many different superhero and comic book movies and today he is going to look at one episode that really creeped me out when I was younger, but now I mostly just cringe at the excellent-but-an-awful-person performance of Moses Gunn, Fitting Punishment
Episode Title: Fitting Punishment

Welcome back to day 3 of our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt here at Channel Superhero, I am your cryptkeeper host Bubbawheat guiding you through the various bloggers and episodes that we are taking a look at this October. Today’s review comes from David Brook who generally writes various editorial articles as well as older cult-ish films over at Blueprint: Review alongside their coverage of new release films, I obviously approve of the use of a colon in their site’s title. Being from across the pond in the UK, he chose one of my recommended episodes which was an episode I rather enjoyed, but also knew that it was a very odd one in terms of tone and subject matter. I will also note one thing that he didn’t mention, that this was a nice touch to give a little origin story to the Cryptkeeper which made me enjoy it all the more. But enough about me, let’s hear what David thought of Lower Berth.
Episode Title: Lower Berth
