The Crypt Keeper
CryptKeeper
Edit

The Crypt Keeper is the first and main of the anthology hosts collectively known as the Ghoulunatics. He is the host for Tales From The Crypt.

Ghoulish LookEdit

The Crypt Keeper is quite an ugly and deformed looking old creature. He has white hair just like The Old Witch and The Vault-Keeper. He also wears a robe like his fiendish friends, yet he keeps the hood down and his is blue. He wears a skull ring on the ring finger of his right hand.

OriginEdit

The Crypt Keeper, the Vault Keeper and the Old Witch were the hosts for EC Comics' horror stories while the Crypt Keeper lived on as HBO's Tales From The Crypt TV show. Unlike the Vault Keeper, and the Old Witch, the Crypt Keeper has a documented origin. The Crypt Keeper's origin story is told  in the issue "Lower Berth". The story tells the tale of a carnival whose star attractions are a mummy named Myrna and a two headed mutant corpse named Enoch. One day the two disappear and are nowhere to be found. A year later, the carnival comes back to the town and finds their lost stars in a cave, taking them back to the carnival. However, they are too far away to hear the cries of the ugly oddities hellish offspring; the Crypt Keeper. At the end of the story, the Crypt Keeper says they are still on display at the carnival today, which he says is eighty years later, meaning the Crypt Keeper is most likely eighty years old.

Halloween Horror Nights Appearances Edit

During Halloween Horror Nights V he was the icon and got his own house called The Cryptkeepers Dungeon of Terror. In 1996 he had his own house called The Cryptkeepers Studio Tour of Terror and his own parade called The Festival of the Dead Parade. He did not return until 2010 in the HHN: 20 Years of Fear scare-zone.

Trivia Edit

  • This icon was the first icon ever used in Halloween Horror Nights Orlando and is the only main icon that is not original.
