Trailer Thursdays: Tales From The Crypt

Because at least half of everything that comes out now is a remake or a reboot of an existing property, we now have a new version of Tales From The Crypt!

Airing on HBO from 1989-1996, Tales From The Crypt was one of a handful of shows I watched in secret as a kid. The anthology series was hosted by the decrepit Crypt Keeper, who would introduce each tale with his laugh.

The show was classic campy horror television, and because it was on a premium channel like HBO, it could get away with a lot more than something on syndication. So, of course, the new reboot series is supposed to air on basic cable network TNT. Well, thanks showrunner M. Night Shyamalan for that swerve.

While there’s no official debut date for the new anthology series, we do have a trailer, so it’s possibly more than just a nebulous concept at this point.
