A horror anthology about a family of monsters watching a different horror story every week on their TV. Each tale is separate, often cautionary with occasional dark humor and irony and features various deadly creatures.

An exclusive all-new interstitial content for the first time in 15 years. See the Cryptkeeper take a blast through the past, decomposing the best of the '70s, '80s, '90s and '00s, on his way to welcoming in 2013.

A modern revival of the classic science fiction horror anthology show The Outer Limits (1963). Episodes often have twist-endings and involve aliens. Sometimes, a story from one episode continues in a later episode.
Each episode of this TV series depicts a short, strange tale...with a twist! With eerie stories vaguely reminiscent of 'The Twilight Zone,' viewers learn to appreciate that things are often not as they seem. The usual plot formula is comprised of an initial normal, mundane situation that gradually begins to get off-kilter, with suspense building up to the final, chilling, surprise conclusion. Written by

The series originally aired as a pilot in October 1983 as "Trick Or Treat" starring Barnard Hughes. Apparently, this was before it became "Tales From The Darkside". The original broadcast wasn't intended as a episode of it until the "Tales From The Darkside" intro was tacked on future repeats of it. See more »
The Darkside is always there waiting for us to enter; waiting to enter us. Until next time, try to enjoy the daylight.

great series..worth watching at least once a week!
Although I was in my early teens when I watched tales from the darkside, if left an impression on me. As a matter of fact, I still remember the first TFDS episode. The Halloween episode in which a rich old, whom everone in the town owns money to, has fun with his debtor's children by making them search for the outstanding notes in his creepy mansion. If a child found the outstanding-notes, that families debts would be wiped off. Of course, none of the children every found them...running out of the house scared out of their minds....until a real witch shows up! Needless to say, the old miser is paid a visit by the devil himself! I still rmemeber it to this day. Anyway, TFDS has dozens of episodes with eerie endings. If you like the late 80's tv series MONSTERS, you would also enjoy "tales from the darkside". It is just too bad that they don't show it any more....
