5 Great Episodes From ‘Tales From The Darkside’ To Prep You For The Upcoming Reboot

If you were a fan of horror in the 80s or you’re a current fan of marathoning horror shows on Chiller, you’re well aware of the greatness that is “Tales From The Darkside.” The series sprang from the success of George A. Romero’s “Creepshow” and lives as an anthology series in the vein of “The Twilight Zone” and “The Outer Limits,” but with more of a focus on horror.

And now it’s coming back at The CW with horror scribe Joe Hill at the helm.

The  original series was campy, creepy and sometimes down-right comical (intentionally and unintentionally) with many of the big names in horror stopping by to provide material, including Tom Savini, Stephen King, Clive Barker, and Romero himself.

Hill’s presence adds a bit of prestige to the project, being Stephen King’s son and a fantastic writer himself.  Alex Kurtzman and Robert Orci are also along for the ride, bringing their experience with shows like “Fringe” and “Sleepy Hollow” to the revival. If all goes well, the show will be paired with the revived “Whose Line Is It Anyway” in Summer 2014.

It’s easy to get excited and even easier to get disappointed at the prospect of updated versions to your favorite shows. They’ve done it three times with “The Twilight Zone” with varying results and this will be the second revival of “Tales From The Darkside” following the spiritual successor “Monsters.”

Either way, I thought it would be a proper time to look back at five of the best episodes of “Tales From The Darkside” to get prepared. You are free to disagree of course and I hope you would share your favorites in the comments.
