Christmas and homicide go together like coffee and pumpkin pie. There’s something so enthralling about a woman being strangled with tinsel and a man being impaled by an icicle with melodic carols softly playing in the background. This little beaut is the novelization for the 1972 movie, which features the murderous holiday segment ‘And All Through The House.’ Zemeckis brought it back in the 90s for the first season of the HBO series and it’s now a fan favorite Each are mandatory for holiday viewing and if you happen upon this paperback, grab it and read up. I absolutely love Tales from the Crypt and this was an early present I just couldn’t wait to find under the tree. (6/25).
