Fresh News On The TALES FROM THE CRYPT Series Within!

Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.

TALES FROM THE CRYPT is a popular show based on EC Comics that originally aired on HBO from 1989-1996. Hosted by the Crypt Keeper himself, the long running series told many tales of Terror in a unique way that is still very effective to this day. There have also been different movie versions throughout the years in different forms.

A whie back TNT announced that they are partnering with M. Night Shyamalan to bring the much beloved Horror anthology series back to the small screen. TNT gave a 10-episode order for the TALES FROM THE CRYPT TV series which will be hosted by a new Crypt Keeper as part of a weekly multi-series Horror Block that Shyamalan will be overseeing, including TIME OF DEATH, a seasonal anthology series from IM Global Television as well as CREATURES, from Naegle Ink.

TNT and TBS President Kevin Reilly spoke with the Television Critics Association at a party Sunday night. When asked for an update on the new TALES FROM THE CRYPT series he said:

“I think it may even be longer than an hour. There’s going to be a half-hour anthology and then a one-hour original show with some shorts in between. So it’s part of a whole block. The original half-hour, sort of slightly comedic, kind of twisted [story] that Night himself is going to direct will be a part of it every week. Then we’re going to have rotating original one-hours. Then we’ve got shorts that’ll be part of it too."

Reilly spoke on the Crypt Keeper situation saying:

“That’s also a little bit of a legal thing too. The rights on this are just a disaster. It’s been a mess trying to sort out. There are so many people that seem to have an ownership position on this. So yeah, that’s both a creative and legal thing.”

As to when we can expect to see this new TALES FROM THE CRYPT series he said:

“Tales will be on towards the end of ’17, in the fourth quarter ’17.”

We will continue to bring you more on TALES FROM THE CRYPT and as it unfolds.
