Greetings ghosts and goblins, this is Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat here once again for day 27 of our fantabulous feast of the faithful fans featuring another fable from our favorite show Tales From the Crypt. Today’s fearless female is Kristen Lopez from her site Journeys in Classic Film where as you might expect, she has been taking a journey in classic film, tackling mainly classic Hollywood from the 40’s through the 70’s along with the occasional dip backwards or forwards as she sees fit, including many trips to the Disney vault where she may or may not find some of my old fiendish friends tucked away in a dusty corner. But today she is looking at what could be called the Goonies of the show since it does, in fact, include one of the Goonies himself as well as a boy who would soon meet world, or at least be friends with a boy who would meet world for a few episodes before he grows up step by step. This is also one of the most misread episode titles as it does not refer to a room, or parlor, but instead refers to the paleness of the skin which is often associated with death, or you might say an Undertaking Palor.
Episode Title: Undertaking Palor

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

Welcome back kiddies! Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat here to introduce the second day of our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt. Today’s episode comes from David Babbitt who is part of another site dedicated to the moving images inspired by comic book panels over at 24 Panels per Second, where he and the rest of the team cover comic book movies in a monthly podcast as well as the occasional episode on a new release or a written article. Here, he takes a look at a great episode from the third season that I always felt had a very western vibe to it even though it’s set in the modern day. Carrion Death.
