Creamguide (Films) Commentaries: Tales from the Crypt

It’s the second commentary in our Halloween triple-bill, and this time our trio of horror fiends alight upon Amicus’ portmanteau masterpiece. It’s a metaphorical journey that takes them to the coldest place in the land (Craig’s front room) and we finally get to hear the big orange for a heid joke.

    I always preferred Amicus and modern-set Hammer.

    1. And Sky’s Tristram Fry played on the soundtrack of the Talons of Weng-Chiang.
    2. Marie Christine Barrault.
    3. Alexis Morell Carrington Colby Dexter Rowan (from memory).
    4. Praed didn’t get killed in Moldavia, he just got shot.
    5. The one UK anthology from that era that isn’t Amicus is Tales That Witness Madness, also with Joanie.
    6. She does, first credit in 1952.
    7. He produced a lot of 50s rock and roll movies featuring the likes of Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis and Fats Domino (RIP Fats).
    8. The girlfriend is Angie Grant, who was in a few Carry On’s.
    9. Robin Phillips, of the Stratford Festival. Supposed to be Ralph Bates.
    10. Roy Dotrice has since died.
    11. Richard Greene made the Robin Hood film Sword of Sherwood Forest for Hammer in Ireland, with Cushing as the Sheriff. My grandad met both, Cushing the nicest man he ever met, and gave a dog to my infant dad.
    12. Magee’s character is called George Carter, as in Dennis Waterman in the Sweeney.
    13. I was called Chicken George, Ben Vereen was in that recent Rocky Horror remake.
    14. Hurndall was in an Amicus, I, Monster, in a big role. Bayldon was turned down by JN-T for being too associated with Pertwee cos of Gummidge.
