TALES FROM THE CRYPT Movies, That Have Nothing To Do With That Show

Do you remember TALES FROM THE CRYPT? You probably do. I loved that show (and even its kid-friendly cartoon spin-off). Unfortunately while not exactly bad, its two official movies DEMON KNIGHT and BORDELLO OF BLOOD kinda lacked the spirit of the HBO show. And since BORDELLO tanked badly at the box office, there weren't any more TFTC movies. (Apparently there was one more, but it was so bad that they removed the cryptkeeper scenes and dumped it straight to video.)

Anyway, this is a constantly updated list of movies, that could have worked very well under the TALES FROM THE CRYPT PRESENTS banner. Horror and crime stories, sometimes with a surprise twist, often with lots of dark humor.

The movies on the list aren't older than 1989, which was when the series started.

Suggestions welcome!
