A few comics-to-film comparisons from Tales From the Crypt (1972)
Though it takes its name from EC Comics’ 1950s horror rag, the anthology Tales From the Crypt (1972) actually lifts its five macabre yarns from a trio of EC’s genre titles. Below you’ll find a few comics-to-film comparisons from the movie, which is one of the best of the seven portmanteaus that Amicus released during the British studio’s run as a rival to Hammer.
Shout! Factory put out a new Blu-ray double feature this week pairing Tales From the Crypt (1972) and its sequel The Vault of Horror (1973). Unlike a previous DVD double bill of the two films released by 20th Century Fox, Shout! Factory’s offering apparently features the uncut R-rated version of Vault.
