TALES FROM THE CRYPT was shown uncut on BBC1 around Christmas 2006, the first time it had been screened uncut on television, with all the extra intestine footage intact. I had to pause my recording and check it against the old Fox double bill pre cert just to make sure I wasn't imagining things. Lovely to see it, totally unannounced and unexpected, and then of course the DVD followed several months later. ::)

Sadly the BBC1 showed it in fullscreen though and it was CH4 that showed it in widescreen.

DR TERROR'S HOUSE OF HORRORS was definitely a paperback as well as THE UNCANNY. THE MONSTER CLUB book was republished version of R Chetwynd Hayes original short stories.

Hi Amy

Yeah the old VHS was cut, but only marginally - nothing too drastic, I was watching that version for 30 years before I even knew it was cut  ;D

I've just written a little something on this for MovieMail:
The first half-hour of Amicus’s Tales from the Crypt (1972) — based on stories derived from Bill Gaines’ legendary 1950s EC Comics series — is surely up there with the best of that classic, 1957-to-1974 cycle of colour British horror cinema.
An efficient and suitably ominous prologue is swiftly followed by two lively stories that illustrate just how much fun the ostensibly straight-laced and undemanding British horror film could be in the hands of a skilled journeyman director (in this case Freddie Francis) and solid, unpretentious performers.

TALES FROM THE CRYPT / VAULT OF HORROR out in October.

I wonder if Vault will be uncut this time? Not holding my breathe.
