Amazon’s Gold Box Deal of the Day today is Tales from the Crypt: The Complete Seasons 1-7 on DVD for only $89.99, 66.6% off the $267 msrp.
Based on the legendary and gruesome EC Comics from publisher William Gaines, this horror anthology featured stories of murder, the super natural, gore and humor and always had a twist ending of sorts. Some of Hollywood’s biggest names took part, either working in front or behind the camera. Hosting duties fell to everyone’s favorite decaying corpse, the Cryptkeeper. The success of this series spawned a Saturday morning cartoon series (Tales From the Cryptkeeper), a short-lived Saturday morning game show on CBS (Secrets of the Cryptkeeper’s Haunted House) and lots of merchandise. Two feature films (Demon Knight and Bordello of Blood) were also produced and released in the late 90’s. The TV series originally aired on HBO, but was later syndicated to Fox, the Sci-Fi Channel, and most recently AMC. This 20-disc set includes all seven seasons.
As with all of the Gold Box deals, this price will disappear at midnight tonight (Saturday, October 30th 2010). So act fast!Cool Posts From Around the Web:
