Many of you I am sure will have fond memories of spending their youth back in the early and late ’80s planted in front of the television set like I did every Saturday night and Sunday so you could catch the latest episode of Tales From The Darkside…

If you count yourself among the legions of fans of those two shows then you might want to sit down because I have some great news. Paramount Home Media Distribution and CBS Home Entertainment are releasing the complete series for both of those classics TV shows to DVD starting on September 6th!
Trick or Treat - Tales From The Darkside
We don’t have a whole lot of information just yet but we will be sure to let you know as soon as we hear anything more. The brief announcement for both DVD sets are below:
Friday the 13th the Series Logo
“Micki Foster inherits an antique store from her Uncle Lewis, but this is no ordinary antique shop. Lewis made a deal with the devil — in exchange for material wealth, he will sell cursed antiques. Micki, along with cousin Ryan and her partner, retired magician Jack, have the duty of recovering the antiques to be sealed in their basement, where the items can’t cause more harm.”
Tales from the Darkside Logo
“This horror/fantasy anthology series follows in the vein of The Twilight Zone. Each week presents another standalone story of horror fantasy, and/or science fiction. Some episodes are gruesome, a few are of a lighter comedic style. Like many such shows, Tales… adapted the work of famous genre authors of the period such as Harlan Ellison, Stephen King, and Clive Barker. Many episodes also featured veteran actors of the 40’s and 50’s that saw very little work in their later years.”
