Good morning creepies! Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat with our final ghost blogger of the season before I wrap things up on our final day tomorrow as this is our 30th day of our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt. It brings me no great pleasure to introduce Jay Cluitt as he has the sickly named site Life vs. Film when he has obviously overlooked the much superior Death vs. Film which would be much more interesting from my point of view. But anyway, at his site he is going through various lists of the best movies of all time, from a cinephile’s perspective where he decides if it’s worth watching, or if you should spend your time living your life in various other ways. Today he’s looking at an episode that some have said is one of the best from the series, and it includes Tim Curry playing triple roles under heavy makeup. It also includes one of the most bizarre sex scenes you’ll ever have the pleasure of seeing on top of having the Death of Some Salesman.
Episode Title: The Death of Some Salesman

Hello again kiddos, Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat with another episode from myself as I continue on through my own slow, mini-journey through the fifth season of the show. This was another episode that I had never seen, yet it includes the likes of Bill Paxton and voice of Chucky Brad Dourif. Nothing like a little doll to bring out the Halloween spirit, or maybe some iScream to jam to. Butter this is more like Of Mice and Men and Murder. But then again, you know what they say about throwing glass if you’re People Who Live in Brass Hearses.
Episode Title: People Who Live in Brass Hearses

Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat rotting away as I bring you the 23rd entry in our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt. Today’s victim is Matthew Stewart who can be found talking with the other pledges over at Simplistic Reviews where you can also listen to them on their podcast, or if you want you can just stalk him on Twitter. Today he’s going back to college with several other 90’s kids including Wesley Crusher and T.S. Quint during pledge week where the haunt of the night is at the House of Horrors.

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 mutants and mutettes! Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat back yet again to introduce the episode for day 9 of our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt. Today’s guest goes by the name Table 9 Mutant which is appropriate that she chose day 9. She spends some of her free time writing on movies, as well as randomly amusing lists and statistics over at her site Cinema Parrot Disco. And in case you’re wondering, it’s not likely that you’ll figure out those references that easily if you don’t already know them. The episode she has chosen is Forever Ambergris from one of my recommendations. I hadn’t watched it in a while, but remember it being one of the better ones as well as being rather gruesome and co-starring Steve Buscemi. So here’s the mutant’s take on Forever Ambergris.
Episode Title: Forever Ambergris

Hello there kiddies! Welcome to the first day of our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt, I’m your Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat and I’ll be guiding you through the various writers and bloggers coming through here to take a look at a different episode of HBO’s Tales From the Crypt every day throughout October. But as this is the first day, I will be kicking things off with the first episode. This episode was chosen mainly because last year I had gone through every episode in the first four seasons of Tales From the Crypt over at Flights, Tights, and Movie Nights with some very brief thoughts on each episode and its twist. So I wanted to continue on into the fifth season this year, and the first episode in the fifth season is a great one that I didn’t want to take away from someone else to cover so I went with the second episode instead, As Ye Sow.
Episode Title: As Ye Sow
