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 »

Short-Lived Series
1 December 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

James Coburn hosted this short-lived anthology series where he presented each tale literally from a darkroom, where he would develop pictures that would relate in some way to the story. This only ran for 7 episodes, and the reason may have been because it so relentlessly cynical and downbeat, with rarely a happy ending for anyone. This might work once or twice, but for most of the 16 segments it must wear the viewer down, and make them turn it off. Did feature future stars like Helen Hunt and Billy Crystal. "Night Gallery" did this sort of thing better. Not yet on DVD, but was on YouTube for awhile. Universal studios owns it, so perhaps Shout/Scream Factory will release it?
