SourceTitle: Tales from the Crypt
Starring: John Kassir (Voice)
Released: 12th July 2005
Warner has announced the complete first season of Tales from the Crypt which will be arriving in shops from the 12th July this year. 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. Each of the episodes will be presented in 1.33:1 full frame along with English 2.0 Stereo Surround tracks. Extras will be included on this one, but Warner has yet to reveal what they will be.
Notice the SRP. Seems cheap at first, but then you consider the release says it will be the "complete first season." According to TV Tome the first season had six episodes: The Man Who Was Death, And All Through The House, Dig That Cat...He's Real Gone, Only Sin Deep, Lover Come Hack To Me, and Collection Completed.
So this looks like just six episodes being released at first. Wish season 2 would be included. I also hope these are the uncut versions and not their syndicated versions.
Making the morning DVD rounds I just went to TvShowsOnDVD and saw this little bit of added info:
Guess that confirms it will just be the six episodes.Now HBO puts all six first-season episodes onto a single DVD, with a second DVD disc full of special features (the details of which haven't been revealed yet).
