Another fantastically ghoulish season

"The fourth season of Tales From the Crypt was another fantastically ghoulish season of horror vignettes based on the classic EC horror comics. As before, season four features a bevy of talent in front of and behind the camera, beginning with the Tom Hanks directed "None But the Lonely Heart", which stars Treat Williams as a paranoid killer who fears that someone is out to get him. The great William Friedkin directs "On a Dead Man's Chest" which stars Tia Carerre as a groupie who convinces her rocker love toy to get a tattoo, and at what a cost! Stephen Hopkins offers up another entry in the series, with "Beauty Rest" which stars Mimi Rogers as an aging wanna-be model who goes to great lengths to secure herself a spot in a beauty pagent, and she gets much, much more than she bargained for. David Warner stars as a radio child psychologist in the "The New Arrival", called in to a special case, and well, let's just say that this is no ordinary child. Richard Donner and Frank Darabont team up for "Showdown", as a murderous cowboy learns a new definition for the word ghost town, and a young Brad Pitt makes a memorable appearance in "King of the Road", as a drag racer blackmailing a former racer turned cop into one last ride, at any price. Season four features three classic episodes as well, including "What's Cooking" in which a drifter (Judd Nelson) changes the lives of husband and wife diner owners (Christopher Reeve, Bess Armstrong) by helping them put something new on the menu, the Joel Silver directed "Split Personality" which stars Joe Pesci as a con artist working a pair of twins, and the season closing "Curiousity Killed" which stars Margot Kidder as an elderly, nagging wife who believes her husband is trying to kill her, but learns something else even more startling instead. All in all, season four of Tales From the Crypt is yet another excellent season of fun frights, and just like the previous volumes, this is a must own for fans of the series."

"I can remember those free weekends HBO would allow the cable companies to have every so often. I would go over to my friend's house have some pizza and soda and stay up late watching the free cable. Along with other hopes that pre-teen would see on cable, this was another show I was hoping to feast my eyes upon. Though these shows were a little bit scarier in my youth, the episodes contained here entertained as well as brought back memories from a time all but forgotten. These stories are great to watch with the family around Halloween or to watch while having as few guests over during the summer. Fun for all I say, fun for all!"
Best Season by Far!

"TftC Season 4 is by far the best Season so far! I guess when they had all these good actors in it they tried harder when writing the episodes. Either way every single one was really good!
Every other review went into all the details you neeed about it, so I wont do that again.
I will say if you truly love horror you'll LOVE Season 4! I hope Season 5 was this good!"
Creepy and steamy

"I found the tales from the crypt to have a little of everything. It has the weird, the funny, the creepy, and the bizaar. The actors were very talented and entertaining. I have all the series so far and will continue to collect these fascinating series."
