* {{Flanderization}}: The Crypt Keeper is far more subdued, more ominious in Season 1, whereas he is more tongue-in-cheek in the rest of the series. According to John Kassir, production always wanted the latter approach, but budget constraints required the Season 1 approach. Renewal and a budget increase allowed production to make the Crypt Keeper the way viewers remember him.

* CompanionCube: The skeletons the Crypt Keeper shares his crypt with. He spends his days playing with them, torturing them, and on occasion, having sex with them.


Added DiffLines:

* UnusuallyInterestingSight: On the odd occasion the Crypt Keeper leaves his crypt to mingle with the general public, no one seems to react predictably to the sight of him.

* AmoralAttorney: "Let the Punishment Fit the Crime".

to:

* AmbiguouslyHuman: It's not entirely clear just what the Crypt Keeper is supposed to be. [[spoiler:Genetically, he's human -- the son of a two-faced man and an Egyptian mummy -- and was considerably less decayed as a baby.]] But on top of being undead, he doesn't refer to himself as human, and may very well have ceased to count as one.

* YourCheatingHeart: Several stories feature adulterers, both male and female. By the end, they get their comeuppance. "Three's a Crowd" makes you think it is going to be this, only to brutally subvert it in the most heart-wrenching way possible.

** "Lower Berth." Enoch the two-faced man wanted a normal life and a family with Myrna, the mummy he fell in love with. Myrna was apparently killed at age 16 and never had a chance at life, let alone love. In a morbid way, they got their happy ending for just a little while. [[spoiler:And together, they made the Crypt Keeper.]]

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.
