‘Tales from the Darkside’ reboot from Joe Hill in development at The CW

…and if the ‘reboot’ doesn’t happen, then we’ve got the original to fall back on. Some of those episodes scared the bejesus out of us. Remember the “Halloween Candy” episode that Tom Savini did with the grouchy old man who hated giving out candy and was shitty to the kids trick-or-treating? And he re-used the monster from “The Crate” segment in Creepshow? God, we love horror anthology films and TV shows, and this one has some promising names attached to it… we won’t count on it happening, but it’s sure good news on a dark November night. And we LOVED the 1990 movie – remember Debbie Harry playing a witch in the wrap-around story?  I saw it in the theater, bought the movie on VHS tape, and on DVD over the years. If you don’t remember it… well, does a young Steve Buscemi (still years away from hitting the A-List back then) as a nerd who resurrects a blood-thirsty mummy, Dave Johansen playing a hitman fighting a “cat from Hell”, or beautiful Debbie Harry keeping a little boy locked up in a cage in her kitchen as she prepares to cook him for dinner that night ring a bell? No? See Tales From The Darkside: The Movie ASAP.  And the series, available on Netflix, isn’t too shabby either!
