Default Tales from the Crypt (1972)





Watched this tonight and was pleasantly surprised as to just how good a transfer this is from Shock of this classic Amicus title from 1972. The grain is nicely intact and colours are well rendered. No sign of DNR at all and the image is au naturel throughout, with some very strong sequences indeed.
Unlike Shock's other offering - the Vampire Lovers, this is in 1080p.
Sound is a decent enough Dolby Digital Stereo track.

Five tales of terror as Crypt Keeper - Ralph Richardson tells the future of five less than pleasant individuals who include Joan Collins, Ian Hendry, Richard Greene, and Robin Phillips. Peter Cushing appears in one of the cautionary episodes too.
This remains my favourite of these anthology tales from the 1970s and the is a cracking disc.

*Region Free*

Movies are so rarely great art that if we cannot appreciate great trash
we have very little reason to be interested in them.

Thanks, Limey.

$39US dollars w/shipping through ezydvd.com is not bad, but I'll search eBay before deciding.

eBay currently seems to be the cheapest. I got it for $25.00 U.S. including shipping to Canada.
