Saturday Frights – Tales From The Crypt: Korman’s Kalamity

Welcome back fiendish friends for another installment of Saturday Frights! For this offering we have a particularly excellent episode from the second season of the HBO Tales From the Crypt series, “Korman’s Kalamity”. It features Harry Anderson (Night Court, It) as an illustrator named Jim Korman that works for a horror comic that is interestingly enough called Tales From the Crypt, he’s a daydreamer but thanks to the experimental fertility medicine his overbearing wife Mildred (Colleen Camp) is forcing him to take…whatever he happens to draw and concentrates upon turns up somewhere in the city and since he is illustrating monsters it’s starting to cause a problem. Which is how Police Officer Lorelei Phelps (Cynthia Gibb) finds her life about to be changed…

A big thanks as always to Sean Hartter for that impressive piece of art you see up top, and another thanks to Drahken’s Intros to Halloween/Monster themed shows over on the Retroist forums, for the idea of this particular Saturday Frights.
