Trivia

Several episodes were filmed and then deemed too intense for viewing on the show. These episodes were culled into an anthology film and capped with an opening scene and thus the film Nightmares (1983) was born. See more »

Too inconsistent for words
31 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Only lasting six episodes, Darkroom proved why anthology series can work, and why they can't.

Way too many of the short segments were clichéd (oh no, yet another 'man has a chance to change the past' story), obvious and dull. And then they'll throw in a story like "The Boogieman Will Get You", or the one with Billy Crystal to tease you into watching again, hoping for one good moment to make sitting through the bad moments worthwhile. Every so often they delivered, but not enough to work on a whole.

James Coburn tried to give the show a presence, but a show like this lives and dies by it's writing, and all too often it died.
