Tales from the Crypt (1972)

Directed by Freddie Francis.

With Peter Cushing, Joan Collins, Richard Greene, Patrick Magee, Ralph Richardson, Barbara Murray, Roy Dotrice, Nigel Patrick, Robin Phillips, Ian Hendry

Tales from the Crypt is a 1972 British horror film, directed by Freddie Francis. It is an anthology film consisting of five separate segments, based on stories from EC Comics. Only two of the stories, however, are actually from EC's Tales from the Crypt. The reason for this, according to Creepy founding editor Russ Jones, is that producer Milton Subotsky did not own a run of the original EC comic book but instead adapted the movie from the two paperback reprints given to him by Jones.
The story "Wish You Were Here" was reprinted in the paperback collection The Vault of Horror. The other four stories in the movie were among the eight stories reprinted in Tales from the Crypt. It was produced by Amicus Productions and filmed at Shepperton Studios.
In the film, five strangers encounter the mysterious Crypt Keeper in a crypt, and he tells each in turn the manner of their death. Richardson's hooded Crypt Keeper, more somber than the EC original, has a monk-like appearance and resembles EC's GhouLunatics. In the EC horror comics, the other horror hosts wore hoods, while the Crypt Keeper did not.
