    [Tales from the Crypt] Cryptkeeper Prop From Joel Silver. Long before HBO was known for The Sopranos, Sex and the City, and Game of Thrones, they had Tales from the Crypt, a horror anthology show, hosted by the Cryptkeeper (and voiced by John Kassir). Based on the EC Comics series, the show ran from 1989 until 1996, turning out 93 episodes and featuring numerous guest stars, including Tom Hanks, Slash, Brooke Shields, and many others. This half-body prop came from the office of mega-producer Joel Silver (who produced the original series, the Tales from the Cryptkeeper animated series, and the Demon Knight and Bordello of Blood films) and given as a gift to the consignor.

    Measures approx. 22" across and 43" tall (with detached hands in separate Ziploc bags). Flesh is made of latex. In Very Good Plus condition with fraying on the shirt and tuxedo jacket, small spots of soiling on the shirt, along with peeled texture in various spots. A fantastic addition for horror lovers. Comes housed in a large Anvil case. COA from Heritage Auctions.
