First aired: 1990
When I looked at the uninspired Tales of the Third Dimension I accused it of being a low rent Tales from the Crypt. I have to thank Scott Harper who suggested that my description of the plot made the vampire section sound like this episode from Season 2 of the TV series of Tales from the Crypt.
Now, I had looked at several vampire episodes from the TV series but never realised this was one. It was floating out there, on YouTube actually, and it is not going to be a surprise therefore to discover that it is about a pair of vampires adopting a child who happens to be a werewolf (as that is the third dimension plot). Indeed it is so similar it is eerie!

This isn’t, however, the best Tales from the Crypt episode. But it does deserve 5.5 out of 10. One wonders, however, if the team behind the earlier film ever realised that their creation had been borrowed and improved upon.
