Greetings everyone, we’re doing something a little bit different today for day 13. Instead of just looking at a single episode, YouTuber Tyler aka The Whedon Fan put together a top 10 list of his favorite episodes a couple years ago. I enjoyed it quite a bit when I watched it last year and he agreed to let me share it with you here this year. I don’t fully agree with his list, there’s a couple I haven’t seen yet and a couple of my favorites that didn’t make the cut, but they’re all great episodes and many of them have been covered or will be covered right here this year in our own 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt. Enjoy!

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

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

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

Welcome back dearies, Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat here to introduce yet another writer for our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt. Today’s ghost blogger is Daniel Lackey from The Nightmare Gallery where he takes a look at all sorts of movies with a bit of an extra edge towards horror. He takes a look at the very last episode which I have yet to watch myself, though I do plan on catching it before the end of this month, it’s the only animated episode even though there was an animated spin-off series called Tales From the Cryptkeeper that started just a few years earlier, so let’s take a look at Daniel’s thoughts on the Third Pig.
Episode: The Third Pig

Good morning creepies! Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat here yet again to bring you another daily gore-y from our ghost bloggers and we’re already into our seventh day of this scare-fest. So let’s welcome Andrew Wickliffe from his site The Stop Button where he usually looks at movies from a less horrific persuasion, but rather films old, new, and really really old. Today he is looking at an episode that I rather enjoyed, though I may have been swayed by my enjoyment of seeing a role from Christopher Reeve that wasn’t Superman. So let’s sit back and take a look at what he has to say about What’s Cookin’.
Episode Title: What’s Cookin’

Good morning Creeps and Cronies! Cryptkeeper Bubbawheat here for yet another day in our 31 Days of Tales From the Crypt, day 6 to be ex-hack-t. Today’s episode is being looked at by one of our own authors here at Channel: Superhero, Todd Leibenow. He’s someone just as busy as I am with two podcasts and his own blog all hosted over at Forgotten Films and he also covered the entire series of the 1980’s Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends and has moved onto the Adam West ’66 Batman. Today he is looking at one of my favorite episodes from season 4 involving a marionette puppeteer past his prime, Strung Along.
Episode Title: Strung Along

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
