First of all the good news. The legendary series Tales From The Crypt is coming back for more scary tales, with the show moving from HBO to TNT. The Sixth Sense director M. Night Shyamalan who recently returned to the horror genre with the quite good The Visit is helping out with the new show and the news has delighted the die hard fans, keen on some brand new tales of terror.
Bad news though the host-The Crypt Keeper who all fans remember as the skeleton who introduced each episode and was voiced by John Kassir is not returning though as the rights to the character is still owned by HBO.
Shyamalan has promised though that the new Crypt Keeper will be cool and lets hope he keeps to his word.
There were reports yesterday that the show may move away from a different tale with each episode and move towards American Horror Story territory and just do one story that will run for 13 episodes. This sounds like an awful idea, but Shyamalan’s recent twitter update stating he is “looking to adapt” some classic Tales From The Crypt tales, conflicts with those reports, so at the moment we all have to wait and see just where the planned direction of this new reboot is heading.
