"Looks like a nice day to die."
Once "Tales of the Crypt" was clearly ending, the directors + producers got some talent together to start a revival series in the saw vein of "Twilight Zone" and "Tales" with a more mature tone. It stars Kirk Douglas on the opposite end of his "Paths of Glory" role against his own son, Brad Pitt in a greaser early role (he was originally cast in Shawshank probably for this), and, in a great choice, William Sadler as a crazed cripple keeping the same level of creep as the cryptkeeper.
The three different episodes are produced by people like Richard Donner, Walter Hill, Joel Silver, and Robert Zemeckis. It was a superb idea that was ahead of its time, especially with "Black Mirror" catching on. Even though they differ on terms of time (best future vs. Various historical), I could see a solid revival catching on.
All in all, it deserves some recognition!
