How to describe the experience of making “Tales From The Crypt” for HBO… It was unique, for starters. Back in the 1990’s when we made Crypt, the TV world and the feature film world intersected very little. “Tales” was an exception to that Rule.
We all had a feeling – as we made “Tales” that the experience of making that show together was truly a special experience. One then has to go and have a whole career – and the life that goes with it – to fully appreciate just how special making Crypt was. Doing anthologies isn’t like doing any other show. You have to invent a whole world every time out (as opposed to a regular series with a regular cast and standing sets which doesn’t have to reinvent anything because it already is).
Every episode of Crypt was a challenge to make. In all honesty, they weren’t all gems. But some still make us incredibly proud that we made them.
In this episode, we put the band back together to talk about Crypt – and spin a few tales about the making of “Tales”. And we put you right there with us!
