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

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
Original Airdate: 10-31-94

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
Original Airdate: 30 – 11 – 1994

Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat back again with another mind numbing tale of terror from Tales From the Crypt this month of October. Today’s terror-ific writer is Austin Shinn, you may find him over at his Film podcast The Film Room and spin-off blog The Film Room Lobby or you can also find him blogging about things a little more personal like dealing with being Autistic at A Flickering Life. But today, on the 12th day of our little blogathon here, he is talking about the episode You, Murderer best known for being one of their special effects testing grounds in a way where the main character has the likeness of one Humphrey Bogart.
Episode Title: You, Murderer
Original Airdate: 1-25-95
