THREE SEASONS DOWN, FOUR TO GO...

"The third season is rather special for me because it has two of my favourite episodes of the whole show - "Abra Cadaver" and "Yellow". As we all know "Tales from the Crypt" is one of the best TV-shows ever, and I personally don't ponder whether to buy it or not. Definately yes! I just can't wait till they release all other seasons as well. And here are all the directors and guest stars appearing in the third season:
THE TRAP - dir. Michael J. Fox. Starring: Michael J. Fox.
LOVED TO DEATH - dir. Tom Mankiewicz. Starring: David Hemmings, Mariel Hemingway.
CARRION DEATH - dir. Steven De Souza. Starring: Kyle Maclachlan.
ABRA CADAVER - dir. Stephen Hopkins. Starring: Tony Goldwyn, Beau Bridges.
TOP BILLING - dir. Todd Holland (Don't confuse with Tom Holland). Starring: Louise Fletcher, Sandra Bernhard, Jon Lovitz.
DEAD WAIT - dir. Tobe Hooper. Starring: Whoopi Goldberg, James Remar, John Rhys-Davies.
THE RELUCTANT VAMPIRE - dir. Elliot Silverstein. Starring: Malcolm McDowell, Michael Berryman.
EASEL KILL YA - dir. John Harrison. Starring: Tim Roth.
UNDERTAKING PALLOR - dir. Michael Thau. Starring: Graham Jarvis.
MOURNIN' MESS - dir. Manny Coto. Starring: Ally Walker.
SPLIT SECOND - dir. Russel Mulcahy. Starring: Brion James, Michele Johnson.
DEADLINE - dir. Walter Hill. Starring: Marg Helgenberger.
SPOILED - dir. Andy Wolk. Starring: Anthony LaPaglia, Faye Grant.
YELLOW - dir. Robert Zemeckis. Starring: Kirk Douglas, Eric Douglas, Dan Aykroyd, Lance Henriksen.
The third season may not have a big amount of major stars, but the directors, the directors! Even if you are not a fan of chills and thrills, you'd want to check their works here. Have fun!"
What happened to to the picture quality!!!!!!

"i give the season four stars. but the dvds get 2 stars. what happend!!! The WB got cheap, the new package sucks its higher than the others and not the same inside. That i could handle, but what really sucks is that the picture quality looks like VHS!The first 2 seasons looked great. But the third looks like im actually watching them in 1991! In a way it feels old school, but dam we are in the dvd age and i wish they looked good like the first 2 seasons. i hope they go back to the old packaging and remastering in the 4th season!"
One Slight Problem - For the DVD Nerd

"I was er...shocked when I recieved my Tales from the Crypt Season 3 Dvds. Why? I'll tell you. For some reason or other, the BEAUTIFUL packaging job that fans i'm sure drooled over in season 1 and 2, is basically GONE! No slip cover, 3 dvd's slammed into 2 thin plastic cases (like every other show does) and no gatefold episode presentations, and to make matters worse, the box stands a little bit higher up then the first 2 seasons. There is a lack of kick ass artwork and the cover isn't even embossed!
They either didn't make enough $$$ or they want to make more $$$, either way, i'm pretty upset. Still a rad show and i'll be buying the other five seasons."
Good selection of episodes...4.5 stars

"This is a pretty great selection of episodes. As with any season some episodes are better then others and there are a few duds. This is actually the best season released so far in my opinion, season 2 is good but there are to many zombie revenge episodes.
You may also notice that the episodes here are noticably longer then in season 1 or 2. Most of these episodes run close to the 30 minute mark (Even a 40 minute episode). In previous seasons the episodes only ran around 20-22 minutes. Also, the introduction that was missing in previous seasons is rightfully included. I recommend this for any fan of the show, the extras on this set are alot better then the ones on season 2.
It should also be noted that the box is different then seasons 1 and 2. This one has 2 small dvd cases inside the box rather then a fold out digipack."
