Get ready ghouls and girls, the Crypt Keeper is making his return to the world of horror.
TNT is reviving the classic horror anthology series Tales From the Crypt and they’ll be getting a little help from acclaimed horror writer-director M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs, and The Village).
The resurrected property will be contained in a new 2 hour horror block at TNT that will be woven in between short and long form content hand picked by Shyamalan. Riding off the successes of The Visit and Fox’s Wayward Pines, M. Night is now looking to dip into a little bit of childhood nostalgia and had this to say about his new project, “To be part of such a beloved brand like Tales From the Crypt, something I grew up watching, and to also have the chance to push the boundaries of genre television as a whole, is an inspiring opportunity that I can’t wait to dive into.”
Those with HBO in the 90s should be very familiar with Tales from the Crypt. Imagine Creepshow and Twilight Zone getting married and having an ugly ass baby called The Crypt Keeper (featured above) who curates horror stories. The original series dates back to the 50s when Williams Gaines created it for EC Comics.
M. Night will team up with his partner Ashwin Rajan who will also help produce the series. The new Tales from the Crypt will debut this fall on TNT.
