Back in December Bloody Disgusting broke the news that TNT’s “Tales From the Crypt” had hit snag, causing a lengthy delay. Apparently, there are some rights issues that caused the cable channel to hit the pause button. With that said, they assured us that the Crypt Keeper’s return to the small screen was still in the cards, hopefully later this year.
“Tales From the Crypt” – part of TNT’s planned Horror Block, which was to also include “Time of Death” and “Creatures” – was greenlit last April as they were ramping up an initial 10-episode order of the anthology series that would have reinvented the Crypt Keeper, based on the original EC Comics. M. Night Shyamalan was to host/curate, which has got to have boosted in value since Split beat the crap out of the box office earlier this year.
A Bloody Disgusting reader Xander A. came across a promo for “Tales From the Crypt” that, for all intents and purposes, look very real.
It is basically a glossy featurette with Shyamalan discussing his plans for the “Horror Block”, which sound abstract and immensely interesting. Enjoy:
