will Tales From the Crypt ever come to dvd?

I know that myself and many others would love it if they came out with box set seasons or something (maybe a boxset contaiing EVERY episode!)...any word on whether this will ever happen?

The best way to make this happen is to:

1. Vote for the show at TVSHOWSONDVD.com

2. Write to HBO

Hopefully, this series will eventually come out.

Seeing how the whole thing was released on VHS, I doubt it would be rights issues.

I thought only around half of the series was released on VHS - maybe I'm wrong.

Either way, HBO shows no interest in shows that are the current "big thing".

LivingINClip is right. It is lingering around half of the total episodes.

There is one release with all of the Robert Zemeckis directed episodes on it:
The Crypt Keeper cacklingly introduces Academy Award-winning director Robert Zemeckis' three tales of the macabre, produced for HBO's bone-chilling horror series. In "And All Through the House," a killer St. Nick crosses some naughty folks off his list--for good; in "Yellow," a decorated Army Lieutenant proves cowardly in the heat of battle; and in "You, Murderer," a surgical makeover transforms an ex-con into the spitting image of Humphrey Bogart--but can't stop his wife's wandering eyes.

This series would sell through the roof!
"Season box-sets" are clearly the way to go.
What are you waiting for HBO, as there's
more to your library then your current fare?

HBO is blind to the fact that an "older series" could be a best seller. They show no interest in things like this and I just don't understand it. The demand is there. The show is known by almost everyone and almost everyone loved the show. I know, me personally, I grew up on it and I'd easily pay $150-200 per season.

I second that. Man those shows filled my high school years in the very early 90's. Sometimes if i had a date not up to snuff, i'll hurry home Friday night at 10 or 10:30( I think Dream On was at one of those times) to catch an episode.

Ahh...memories..... I know this feels due to biased opinion, but damn while tv shows from the past are coming out by the dozens, I feel that my faves are still locked away somewhere.

I miss that crypt Keeper

I completely agree... it seems like most of the major dvd houses are completely focused on new stuff when in fact, some of the older stuff would sell like crazy. I just don't get it...

I for one would buy them in a hot second.

It would be great if Joel Silver, Bob Zemeckis, David Giler,
and Richard Donner would get permission to release this
"bloody" series onto DVD already! What a great series
of DVD's this will make when it's fianally released.
Wake up HBO and just release it already...and in
"season box-sets" and not a cluster of the best of,
as we want all of them!
