Related loosely to the [[Film/ECComics 1972 film]] of the same name, as both had stories based on comics from the same company. There were also the full-length movies (which were direct adaptations of the show, complete with the Crypt Keeper) ''Film/DemonKnight'' and ''Film/BordelloOfBlood''. There was also a Saturday morning game-show called ''Secrets from the Cryptkeeper's Haunted House''. For the animated adaptation, see ''WesternAnimation/TalesFromTheCryptKeeper''.

* TheMovie: Technically six. Two films were produced in the 1970s by Creator/AmicusProductions -- [[Film/ECComics a self-titled movie]] and ''The Vault of Horror''. (Unsurprisingly, though, this series has a loose connection to those movies.) In 1989, a CompilationMovie was put together, consisting of "The Man Who Was Death", "And All Through the House", and "Dig That Cat, He's Real Gone". Three [[ThematicSeries stand-alone franchise films]] were made in the 1990s: ''Film/DemonKnight'', ''Film/BordelloOfBlood'' and ''Ritual'', the last of which was released straight to video. Note that ''Ritual'' was produced as a ''[=TFtC=]'' movie, but later edited to remove any connection to the franchise. This connection was later restored in an effort to increase awareness of it.

[[note]] [[MemeticMutation What a twist!]] [[/note]] However, due to arising copyright issues, the planned reboot was unceremoniously nixed by the network in mid-2017.
