** After the Crypt Keeper show us [[spoiler: how he was conceived]], you expect him to crack a joke at the end. He does...while sobbing his eyes out. He's legitimately upset he never got to see his [[spoiler: parents]] and he admits the tale makes him utterly depressed. The final shot is him letting out a cackle that dissolves into a tragic laugh.

* ConspicuousCG: Even though the CGI to bring HumphreyBogart (and Creator/AlfredHitchcock in a cameo) back to life in the episode "You Murderer" was still pretty well done, there are moments when the CGI can be off at times.

* AllStarCast: It was amazing how many A-list actors they got to both write and direct for this show; WhoopiGoldberg even appeared [[AsHimself As Herself]] in the outro to one episode being interviewed by the Crypt Keeper.

* HarsherInHindsight: "Yellow" features Kirk Douglas and his son Eric as a general and his cowardly son, the latter [[spoiler:being executed for abandoning his fellow men in the field.]] Sadly, as Eric [[spoiler:died in 2004 of an accidental drug overdose, Kirk ended up outliving his son in real life as well.]]

** The ending to "Yellow," particularly for Kirk Douglas' character. And that's ''without'' the real-life HarsherInHindsight aspect.



** For others, the Crypt Keeper himself.

Added DiffLines:

** At the end of "Carrion Death", when the vulture kills Diggs by ripping his eye out, while the initial effect still looks pretty good it's clearly a dummy head switched out for Kyle [=MacLachlan=]'s in the final shot.

* AdaptationDisplacement: Most modern audiences are ''more'' familiar with the TV series than the original 1950's comics. It doesn't help that reprinted collections of the original comics are ungodly expensive.

* ShoutOut: On the YMMV page because it's only a ''possible'' one. In "Split Second," TheWoobie's name is Ted, and the actor who plays him, Billy Wirth, bears more than a passing resemblance to Creator/KeanuReeves.

* TheWoobie: Quite a few. Bobby in "Fitting Punishment" may be one of the more notable examples, as well as Enoch in "Lower Berth."

Added DiffLines:

** Patricia Arquette's character in "Four-Sided Triangle." The way she tells old man Yates in a near-cry that she'd rather ''die'' than stay on his farm says the most about the way he and his wife abuse her.
