  • This is a 1994 Canadian slipcase release co-distributed by Malofilm Video, New World Pictures & Republic Pictures Home Video.
  • This is a collection of three "tales" from various seasons of the HBO series, "Tales From The Crypt"
  • The three "tales" in this collection are "The Trap" (Directed and with a brief cameo by Michael J. Fox), "Split Second" & "On a Deadman's Chest".
  • "Split Second" is my all time favorite episode of "Tales From The Crypt".
  • Michelle Johnson didn't go on to be much of a star but she did have two amazing "assets" going for her. Yes, you see them in the "Split Second" segment and they are spectacular.
  • The Malofilm Video & New World International logo sequences are shown before the feature.
  • There are no previews before the feature.
  • The Republic Pictures Home Video logo only appears on the front ink label and not in the actual feature or the slipcase.
  • The episodes are edited together without their opening and end credits, giving it more of a theatrical horror anthology feel. Each segments credits are edited together following the last story, in the order of "On A Deadman's Chest", "Split second" & "The Trap". This is a reverse order of how the episodes are sequenced on the tape.
  • The intro for this collection retains the usual "Home Box Office Presents", however, the "Tales From The Crypt" title logo does not appear after the intro ends, it is placed somewhere in the middle with the "Night Of Horror" graphic below it.
