DAY 5: THE TALES FROM THE CRYPT CHRISTMAS ALBUM
If any TV series demands a modern-day reboot, it’s TALES FROM THE CRYPT, which debuted on HBO in 1989 and ran for seven years.
Also big in the 1990s were CD players. These are somewhat less demanding of a reboot. Note that Apple’s newest iMac doesn’t include a disc drive of any kind. But if any fright fans on your list still cling to their shiny discs like Golem clings to his precious rings, nothing will make them happier than the TALES FROM THE CRYPT CHRISTMAS ALBUM.
Some highlights of the track list are as follows:
Deck the Halls with Parts of Charlie
We Wish You’d Bury the Missus
‘Twas the Fright Before Christmas
Twelve Days of Cryptmas
Should Old Cadavers Be Forgot
Now a collector’s item, used copies can be dug up on Amazon. Also available: THE TALES FROM THE CRYPT: COMPLETE SEASONS 1 – 7 BOX SET for a not-unreasonable US $112.00.
