|Sleazeappeal||This story was also included in the 1970s British film version of "Tales From The Crypt". You can see the whole thing on YouTube.|

|al_frank2000||Y'all should check out the original story, which was printed in Tales From The Crypt's sister publication, The Vault of Horror. And All Through the House appeared in issue 35.|

Man, I sure miss Tales from the Crypt, Monsters, and Tales from the Darkside. Best eps from all three:
Crypt - Four-Sided Triangle. Patricia Arquette (who was quite sexy back in the day) is a farmhand (more like slave, really) run by a sadistic old couple. She fights off the horny old man's advances while doing her chores and runs to the cornfield, where she meets "her man," a scarecrow. When she explains she's meeting him again at midnight, the old man gets the idea that he'll dress up like the scarecrow and get it on with her. Unfortunately, his wife wakes up, and goes out with a pitchfork. When Mr. Scarecrow goes back onto the post, the ornery old lady stabs it, then cries and mourns her dead, stupid husband. Just then the girl puts the pitchfork right in the mean old lady's back. She actually plotted the whole thing, and takes the key to their vehicle, freeing herself from their clutches.
Tales from the Darkside - The old bayou witch lady (probably best known as Roger's mom on What's Happening) with the voodoo gingerbread men episode really sticks in my mind. She'd also turn people into kitchen rats with magic dough. Ended with the rat (who, as a person, had hidden a gingerbread man)eating the old witch alive. Man, who the heck comes up with this stuff?
Monsters - A comedy episode about a werewolf family (with Jerry Stiller as the Dad!)at odds with their daughter marrying a were-hyena. Fascinating take on racism, and daddy's little girl marrying outside their own.
Post more crypt articles, this was awesome!

|azrael2514||While this episode was good I always enjoyed "Tales from the Darkside" better for horror shows. TftC was only really good for the gore and nudity since it was on HBO. TftD I thought always had better stories but they were horribly acted. Anyways, if you want a good Christmas horror story watch the Tales from the Darkside episode "Seasons of Belief" on Youtube here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1vmIBbjv6A This episode seriously fucked with me when I was little. Especially at the end. I highly, HIGHLY recommend it. You could easily even write a piece on it too for this Christmas season.|

I've always preferred the original from the film.
But that's probably just because it was the one I saw as a kid and the hobo-looking Santa scared the life out of me.

|Ex Leper||Listening to the Tales From The Crypt Christmas album as I read this, good times. Hey Roger, how would you compare this episode to the original 1972 film version?|

|Ozzie||John Kassir now voices Deadpool in Marvel video games like X-Men Legends and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. It's great to see how he's built a career solely on awful puns.|

|HowardC||Sad thing is... I've actually seen real-life animatronic santas with teh same sort of creepy, rubbery mask on their face. If you like to celebrate xmas by scarring your kids for life go down to your local S-Mart and pick one up today!|

|DougClayton4231||I loved this episode! It was so creepy and yet so cheesy at the same time.|
