Is it only available on that website? The price is a little steep but I may have to get it anyway. I'd hate to get this then have it included in the rumored season sets later on this year.

it will not be in the season sets....this was an independent production and i am not sure that it has found distribution yet. From what i have heard, it covers more of the comic book side than the tv series... unless the company who owns the rights to release the tv shows were to buy this and then pack it then it won't be included.

I loved the old EC comics. I used to have the entire hard back collection, unfortunately it got stollen about 15 years ago (god, I'd love to get them again, does anyone know if they were reprinted?).
I never heard of this DVD but would buy it in a heartbeat. Thanks for the info

EDIT: Er... $30.00 + s/h seems a bit much. I may wait and see if it is sold elsewhere later.

My roommate picked up the five HC volumes of 'Vault of Fear' at the Strand (a used bookstore) thinking he could sell them on E-bay, and then it turned out the E-bay prices weren't high enough for him to do it; I think you could get them there for about $30-$40 each (each set, that is, not each HC).

You're confusing two different EC Comics, Vault of Horror + Haunt of Fear

No, I don't think they were ever reprinted, at least in recent memory. Most of them are out of print, but the horror ones -- "Tales from the Crypt," "Vault of Horror," and "Haunt of Fear" should still be available from Gemstone Publishing/Diamond Comics. "Haunt of Fear" is available as five hardcover books shrinkwrapped together without the slipcase for some reason, while the other two sets come slipcased.

The rest of the EC hardcovers/sets are currently unavailable as far as I know, except on the secondary/collector's market.

Just wanted to let everyone know who had thought about this and passed thinking that they would get it with the season 1 set. from the website in the OP.

Finally, an edited version of the documentary is featured on the new DVD, Tales from the Crypt: The Complete First Season. This DVD released by Warner Home Video does NOT include the complete, unedited documentary (for instance, it does not include the section exploring the influence of EC Comics on directors George A. Romero and John Carpenter). The Warner Home Video release also does NOT include any of the 3 hours of bonus features (such as the Ray Bradbury-Al Feldstein roundtable discussion) that make "Tales from the Crypt: From Comic Books to Television" a must have for EC fans and comic book lovers!
