There’s been a lot of hype surrounding Clown, no doubt because purveyor of gore and grue, Eli Roth (Hostel), has his name attached to the film. So forgive me if I came away from the movie feeling a little under-whelmed. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed what I saw but I couldn’t help but feel it needed something more… After all, when you break the story down, it’s not much more than a Tales From the Crypt/Tales From the Darkside-style morality play; and those two TV shows told their stories in less than thirty minutes.
Clown tells the story of doting father Kent who dons a clown outfit he finds in an abandoned property he is renovating, »

It looks like the cult 80s horror anthology series Tales from the Darkside could be heading back to the small screen, with The CW ordering a pilot for a new hourlong series.
The project is being produced by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, with writer Joe Hill (Horns) penning the screenplay for the pilot. The trio have previously worked on a pilot for Locke & Key, which was based upon Hill’s own graphic novel.
Created by horror master George A. Romero, Tales from the Darkside launched in 1984 and ran for four seasons and 90 episodes in total, including the original pilot. It also spawned a movie, the appropriately-titled Tales from the Darkside: The Movie, which saw Hill’s dad Stephen King contributing a short story.

In development since November 2013, The CW Network has officially ordered a pilot for their Tales from the Darkside reboot. Joe Hill, the author of Horns, Locke & Key and the son of celebrated novelist Stephen King, is writing the pilot script and executive producing alongside Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.
The original horror anthology series, which was created by George A. Romero, ran for four seasons on CBS between 1984 and 1988. It was later adapted for the big screen in 1990's Tales from the Darkside: The Movie. Each episode of the show told an individual short story with a twist, in the same vein as other programs such as Amazing Stories, The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits and Tales from the Crypt. The show typically stayed within the horror, science fiction, and fantasy genres, but certain episodes featured more dark comedy or lighthearted themes.
