Tales from the Crypt
Tales from the Crypt was a television horror anthology series based on the EC horror comics of the same name. The series, which featured episodes helmed by such directors as Robert Zemeckis, Walter Hill, Richard Donner, and John Frankenheimer aired for seven seasons on HBO from 1989 to 1996. The series would also spawn several feature films including 1995's Demon Knight and 1996's Bordello of Blood.
The following weapons were used in the television series Tales from the Crypt:
Smith & Wesson Model 629 (Custom Mag-na-ported)
In "Cutting Cards" (S2E03), both Reno (Lance Henriksen) and Sam (Kevin Tighe) use what appears to be a custom Mag-na-ported Smith & Wesson Model 629 with a 2.5 inch barrel. Sam refers to it simply as a "forty-four". This appears to be the same revolver seen in the films Beverly Hills Cop and Extreme Prejudice.
