    TALES FROM THE CRYPT has always been the reigning variety program in terms of horror television, but at present MASTERS OF HORROR is all the rage. Do you like vintage or youngblood?

    Tales From The Crypt by a long shot. MOH hasn't lived up to any of it's potential in my opinion.

    TFTC by a mile. MOH isn't that good.

    Tales From the Crypt was good, even when it was bad. Masters of Horror has its moments, but for the most part :sleepy:

    Tales, is for me, my favorite anthology series after Twilight Zone. Masters has had its moments, but is mostly just a fun little diversion every week without much substance. At least it's bringing horror series back to pay TV though.

    Not really a fair fight. Tales From The Crypt isn't on the air anymore and most shows become more popular in hindsight as the nostalgia factor kicks in.

    MOH has fallen pretty flat with me so far.

    Yes it was. The fight at the end was excellent!! And Cynthia Gibb...hubba hubba!

    I vote for MOH. Of course I didn't get to see TFTC much when it was on but every time I watched one I usually turned it off before the end. The Cryptkeeper annoys me.

    Besides, I've enjoyed most of the MOH eps so far to some extent.

    Guess I'm the only one brave enough to admit out in the open that I voted for MOH. :(

    I'll join ya, man

    I like MOH, at least what I've seen so far. I recently saw Jenifer, and it's the least of the episodes I've seen. It's not a subject matter Argento has really done before (except maybe the mutant child from Phenomena), and he seemed pretty uncomfortable with what to do with it.

    Still, the overall tone seems much darker than the tongue-in-cheek Tales from the Crypt.

    I really like them both, but I will agree that TFTC pretty much owns MOH so far. So many of those stories were just great, and I don't grow tired of them.

    I actually think the hour-long format has killed quite a few MOH episodes that just can't sustain the running time. I swear that about half of them would be better served in thirty minutes and some that seem pretty mediocre, might have been brilliant with a serious trimming.

    prime examples: Dance of the Dead, The V Word.

    I voted MOH, mainly because the Crypt Keeper is really, really lame, and I'm slightly too old for the series to have much nostalgia for me (like Tales From the Darkside and Darkroom do). Good stories though, which is to be expected considering they're all adapted from old EC comics.

    I love both but TFTC is more entertaining but then again we dont have as many MOH episodes yet so who knows. However season 1 of Tales is very solid where as MOH which has so much talent not all the episodes are well good (chocolate and deer woman come to mind).
