Tales From The Cryptkeeper S1 Ep.14: Ghost Ship (1993)


Tales From The Crypt
Season 1, Episode 14
Ghost Ship

We interrupt the Cryptkeeper's bath time--don't worry, he's fully dressed--and he tells us today's story while he scrubs his moldy feet.


A pair of totally tubular surfer dudes hijack a motorboat, which promptly breaks down in the middle of the ocean. When a ship approaches them, they board, believing that they're saved. Little do they know that it's a ghost ship--literally!--haunted by the skeletal spirits of a pirate crew.

After a lengthy battle, they're convinced to assist the ship's captain in recovering a buried treasure


It's Bill and Ted meets Pirates of the Caribbean, which isn't nearly as charming as it sounds. The surfer dude dialogue gets tedious real fast, but there is the occasional set piece that is pretty nice to look at. It's a mock-epic episode, and turns out to be a pretty weak way to end the first season.
