The ghoulish Cryptkeeper (a puppet voiced by John Kassir) makes wisecracks and introduces macabre tales of horror in this series of standalone episodes. Stories typically feature unsavory characters who meet their comeuppance in grisly and delightfully deranged ways. Guest directors and appearances by a wide variety of stars (some of whom you would never expect to appear in a horror series) deliver one surprising twist after another.
