TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE
Tales from the Darkside is an anthology horror TV series
produced by George A. Romero; it originally aired in syndication
from 1983 to 1988. Similar to Amazing Stories, The Twilight Zone,
Night Gallery, The Outer Limits, and Tales From The Crypt, each
episode was an individual short story that ended with a plot twist.
The series' episodes spanned the genres of horror, science fiction
and fantasy, and some episodes featured elements of black comedy or
more lighthearted themes.
The moderate success of George A. Romero's horror anthology
film Creepshow led to initial inquiries about the possibilities of
a Creepshow series. Because Warner Brothers owned certain aspects
of Creepshow, Laurel Entertainment (which produced the film) opted
to take their potential series into a similar, yet separate,
direction, including changing the name to Tales from the Darkside.
The new name reflected Creepshow's focus, that of a live-action
EC-based horror comic book of the 1950s like Tales from the Crypt
or The Vault of Horror, though the series would not carry the
trappings of a comic as Creepshow did.
Some episodes of the series were written by or adapted from the
works of famous authors. Stephen King's short stories "Word
Processor of the Gods" and "Sorry, Right Number" were amongst them.
Works by Frederik Pohl, Harlan Ellison, Clive Barker, Michael
Bishop, Robert Bloch, John Cheever, and Fredric Brown were also
featured.
Notable guest stars include...Barnard Hughes, Danny Aiello, Vic
Tayback, Jerry Orbach, Allison Sweeney, Renee Taylor, Abe Vigoda,
Marcia Cross, Phyllis Diller and Harry Anderson...
