The sister title to EC’s legendary comic book series (and HBO television series) Tales from the Crypt, the first season of THE VAULT OF HORROR will feature adaptations of the first six issues of the original series for a total of 24 spine tingling stories. Adapted by Pocket Plot Co-Founder Lance Roger Axt and former MAD Magazine writer Butch D’Ambrosio, and directed by Pocket Plot Co-Founder William Dufris, each piece brings to life the over-the-top fun and fright of the original comics, updated with modern sensibilities that reflect today’s diversity.
In addition to Mr. Grevioux, an ensemble of over 60 actors is featured in the first season, including Phil Proctor (co-founder of the famed comedy team The Firesign Theatre), and the voice of MTV’s Æon Flux, Denise Poirier. And, as always, Pocket Plot signature soundscapes are employed through two of the finest sound design firms on the team – David Chen Sound & O’Shea Creative Media – offering listeners an immersive experience that draws them deeper into the action like never before.
“We’re so excited to crack open the Vault with Pocket Plot” remarked Corey Mifsud, grandson of EC Comics publisher William Gaines. “These audio adaptations breathe a whole new life into the classic EC horror tales. And frankly, it’s about time the Vault Keeper got his own show!”
