The first trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s “Tales from the Crypt” reboot promises to be a smashing good time. Though the trailer contains little to no new information about the upcoming series, it does provide a spine-tingling tease of what fans can expect to see when it arrives on the small screen.
Fans awaiting the release of the reboot might remember that the project was in limbo as TNT sought to get full control of the show. While there’s been no update on that, the trailer should give fans hope that the program is still moving forward.
TNT also released a brief “Tales from the Crypt” featurette starring M. Night Shyamalan. In it, he discusses the draw of “Tales from the Crypt” and teases the idea of the show, which will be a two hour block of programming that includes various forms of storytelling, all curated by Shyamalan — and hosted by the Cryptkeeper himself, of course.
While there’s no word yet on any official release date for the show, it is heartening to see that promos are being released for it, as this reboot was originally planned to be a cornerstone in TNT’s new horror programming block. With 2017 already underway, expect some news regarding this program sooner rather than later.
“Tales form the Crypt” began as a horror comic published by Entertaining Comics, better know as EC Comics. The company published the scandalous — for the time — book from 1950-1955. Most issues featured two or three short tales, with a host-of-sorts, The Crypt Keeper, serving as a connector between the spooky stories that often ended with a deadly twist.
The title was brought back into the mainstream media with early ’90s adaption on HBO. Airing almost 100 episodes, with many of the original stories adapted, the show was very successful for several years. Throughout the seven seasons a who’s who of actors and directors took part in the show, delighting and disgusting viewers.
