The Gold Box deal of the day over at Amazon today is Tales from the Crypt: The Complete Seasons 1-7 on DVD for only $89.99 (thatâ€™s 66% off the list price of $266.98).
Note, this sale is only for today, Saturday October 30, until midnight PST while supplies last.
This 20-disc set includes all seven seasons of the horror anthology series based on EC Comics from publisher William Gaines, that ran on HBO from 1989 to 1996. You’ll probably remember Tales from the Crypt from its popular host, the rotting corpse, the Cryptkeeper.
Math time: $89.99 for 7 season DVDs = appx $12.86 per DVD; super deal!
What stood out about the show is not only that thanks to its being on HBO it could contain adult content, like sex, profanity, and violence, but also that so many popular celebrities guest-starred on the series, like Brad Pitt, Demi Moore, Tom Hanks, and many, many more. Also, some big name directors were behind the camera on a lot of these episodes, like Robert Zemeckis and Richard Donner.
Also, the DVDs cases all feature the classic EC Comics comic book cover style (something you might notice is similar to the header on this very website!).
