Directed by Rob Letterman.
A teenager teams up with the daughter of young adult horror author R.L. Stine after the writer’s imaginary demons are set free on the town of Greendale, Maryland.
2015/2016 seems like such an odd time to adapt the best-selling book series that really had its heyday 20 years ago. Like The Tom Green Show or Jackass, R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps was a product of its time; horror stories written for children while shows like Tales From the Crypt entertained adults. As such, adapting Goosebumps for the big screen in the 21st Century was never going to be an easy task. The earliest attempt can be traced back to the late-1990s – when the book series was at its most popular – with Tim Burton possibly directing. Obviously, that movie never materialised either, »

The anthology horror pic Southbound has been making waves on the festival circuit since its Tiff debut in September, but it finally sees theatrical release Friday from The Orchard. That’s good news for horror fans but terrible news for the film’s protagonists, whose mistakes and bad actions come back to haunt them in a series of five interlocking morality plays set on a desolate stretch of desert highway. Part Tales From The Crypt and part Twilight Zone, the film features… »
A number of different voice actors have taken on the role of Deadpool over the years, each bringing his own specific sensibility to the Marvel anti-hero. Among that group is John Kassir, most famous for voicing the Crypt Keeper on HBO's iconic Tales from the Crypt series, who brought the wise-cracking assassin to life in a total of three video games: X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse and both entries in the Marvel: Ultimate Alliance series. With the live-action Deadpool starring Ryan Reynolds hitting theaters on Feb. 12, I took a moment to ask the voice actor (speaking to me about the rumored non-involvement of the Crypt Keeper in M. Night Shyamalan's Tales from the Crypt reboot) how he would rate Reynolds' Deadpool voice. Turns out he likes it, which perhaps isn't surprising considering Reynolds' take is actually quite similar to his. "At first when I saw the commercial for it I was like, »

Zombies. The damn things are everywhere now, the last 12 years filling the screens big and small , carried on the rotting backs of Shaun of the Dead and the Dawn of the Dead remake (both 2004). The Walking Dead is one of the biggest shows on TV, and films ranging in quality from great to Netflix saturate the market. But let’s go back to a time when the zombie film as we know it (the Age of Romero) was in its infancy. Jorge Grau’s The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue (1974) acts as a bridge between two seminal George Romero films, Night of the Living Dead (1968) and Dawn of the Dead (‘78), and rightly stands as one of the finer Euro horrors. If you haven’t seen it, it’s definitely worth the trip.
Released in 1975 in North America as Don’t Open the Window, this Spanish/Italian coproduction was frequently paired »

Along the lines of “The Twilight Zone” and “Tales from the Crypt,” the show’s pilot features a mysterious pocket watch that does far more than just tell the time. Creepy! This »
The opening 10 minutes of writer-director Nicolas Pesce’s “The Eyes of My Mother” plays like the art-film version of an old EC Comics horror story — like one of those "Vault of Horror" or "Tales from the Crypt" eight-pagers where a monster gets its comeuppance at the claws of an even bigger monster. In a remote American farmhouse in the mid-20th century, a Portuguese surgeon-turned-housewife makes the mistake of allowing a creepy drifter named Charlie ( Will Brill) into her home, where he commits an act of unspeakable violence. But then her taciturn farmer husband arrives on the scene, and Charlie discovers that there some people are capable of conceiving of even more depraved things to do to human beings than he can. Pesce shoots this little vignette in stark black and white, with static, clinical framing, and minimal sound beyond the moans and thrashing of the victims. It’s a brutal, »

Over the weekend, it was reported that TNT's Tales from the Crypt reboot would not include the iconic Crypt Keeper puppet voiced by John Kassir. While HBO apparently owns the rights, producer M. Night Shyamalan confirms that there will be a new Crypt Keeper who is described as being much different from the ghoul we all know and love. He has this to say on his official Twitter.
"I'd never make Tales without the Ck! Will be a new take on him as the puppet is property of HBO. Promise he'll be cool and dark!"
Bloody Disgusting was able to get some early intel on the series. They claim the new Crypt Keeper will be an old man in a hood, holding a cane. He will keep warm by a fireplace as he tells each story continued in the new episodes. This aspect of the series will be more true »

Just a couple days ago, TNT announced that they were creating a new block of horror programming that would be anchored by a reboot of the horror anthology series Tales from the Crypt. The adaptation of the comic book of the same name was originally on HBO, but now it’s being taken to more tame […]

(Update: M. Night Shyamalan has confirmed that a new Crypt Keeper will appear on the show. His Tweet is below.) Will Tales from the Crypt be the same without the iconic Crypt Keeper? Most fans would argue no. But, sadly, TNT, who is moving forward with a reboot of the series, may not have a choice in the matter. What is keeping everyone's favorite storytelling ghoul from returning to the small screen?
Apparently, HBO still owns the rights to the character, which TNT has not obtained. Sources close to Bloody Disgusting say that's probably not going to change, either. John Kassir is the voice behind the Crypt Keeper, and he made his own plea to HBO this week on his Twitter account. Here's what he had to say.
"I'll go on record, Crypt Keeper as we know him is more popular than ever & it'd be a sham/shame not to have him host the show! »
TNT has confirmed that director M. Night Shyamalan will supervise a live-action reboot of "Tales from the Crypt", based on the 1950's EC horror comics series, featuring short and long form episodes, debuting Fall 2016:
"To be part of such a beloved brand like 'Tales From the Crypt', something I grew up watching, and to also have the chance to push the boundaries of genre television as a whole, is an inspiring opportunity that I can’t wait to dive into," said Shyamalan.
The first "Tales from the Crypt" TV series aired on HBO from 1989 to 1996, starring an animatronic version of the host, known as the 'Crypt Keeper'.

Tales from the Crypt without the Cryptkeeper? Believe it or not, that may be what we're in for. According to an exclusive report over at Bloody-Disgusting, not only will TNT's recently-announced Tales from the Crypt revival series not be a weekly anthology like the original show, it will also lack the most beloved element from HBO's famed '80s and '90s incarnation: the pun-loving corpse voiced by John Kassir and designed by special effects makeup artist Kevin Yagher, who charmed audiences with his rotting flesh, penchant for tacky one-liners ("That Grunwald, one little problem and he goes right to pieces!") and maniacal high-pitched cackle. In response to fan outrage, Kassir himself has called the alleged snub a "shame/sham" via his official Twitter account, and he expanded on those comments when I spoke to him via phone earlier this afternoon. "It's funny, I have more trending going on with »

We’re only a few days into 2016, but the trend of rebooting old television shows continues. This time it’s HBO’s beloved horror anthology series, Tales from the Crypt, that’s returning from the dead. Per Variety, TNT is bringing the show back this fall as part of a two-hour block of genre programming, and it’s being overseen by M. Night Shyamalan. There are four other unidentified shows currently at various stages of inclusion, but the new Crypt will be based on the original EC Comics’ while also featuring some newly-written stories. “It will not be based on the long-running HBO series,” says Variety’s piece, but that seems fairly obvious right? It does raise questions though as to what the new show will look like. The new episodes will run an hour each, but it’s not entirely clear if they’ll follow the expected anthology format with each episode being a standalone. That »

When the name "Tales from the Crypt" comes up, people immediately think of the iconic puppet character the Crypt Keeper. Serving as the gross and cheeky host of the 1990s HBO anthology series, he was the common face and mascot for the anthology series throughout its original run.
Earlier this week came word that M. Night Shyamalan will produce a new version of the show for TNT sometime this year as part of a weekly two-hour block of horror programming. At the time it wasn't indicated whether the Crypt Keeper would return.
Now, Bloody Disgusting reports that he definitely won't be back as HBO still owns the rights to the character which, though named after a character from the 1950s series of comics from which the franchise is based, is essentially a creation of the original HBO show.
Instead, they say the new show "will be highlighted by an old man with a cane, »

Mr Shyamalan is curating a weekly ‘two-hour block of terror’ for TNT, said to feature ‘both short and long-form storytelling, led by Tales From The Crypt,’ a revival of the EC Comics-inspired horror anthology series that ran from 1989 to 1996 on TNT’s sister network HBO.
This spine-tingling scheduling spectacle is expected to begin in the autumn of this year, and we’ve been told to expect more information on the other shows within the ‘block’ in the coming weeks and months.

Tom Hanks, Daniel Craig, Timothy Dalton, Blythe Danner, Benecio Del Toro, Meat Loaf, Whoopi Goldberg, Margot Kidder, Ewan McGregor, Demi Moore, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Christopher Reeve, Pierce Brosnan, Adam West, William Friedkin, Robert Zemeckis, John Lithgow, William Sadler, Bob Hoskins, and even Sugar Ray Leonard. That's just a tiny, tiny smattering of the fantastic cast and crew list that popped up in the greatest horror anthology show ever made, Tales From the Crypt. Soon we can add one more to the list: M. Night Shyamalan. The director of Signs, The Sixth Sense and The Visit is teaming with TNT to create a two-hour horror block on the network, which will not only be the home of a rebooted Tales From the Crypt, but will also be a venue for other short form horror...

Night Shyamalan, the director of The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, has signed on with cable network TNT to executive produce a two hour horror block on the station that will be centered around a reboot of the HBO's Tales From the Crypt horror anthology series. The original Tales television show ran for seven seasons in the '90s and became one of the most popular horror related shows of all time.
