For the German release of the series, nine of the sixteen episodes were cut together and aired as two series specials. The host sequences with James Coburn were cut out and replaced by German host sequences with actor Carl-Heinz Schroth. The title of this TV special was 'Carl Heinz Schroth: Meine schwarze Stunde', and it was first released in November 1984. See more »
Fun little EC-ish horror anthology series that lasted only seven episodes on ABC in 1981/82. Each episode had 2 to 3 short stories in it with a total of 16 stories in all. The best of these being the 1-2 punch of "Needlepoint", a VERY short voodoo revenge story that scared the living hell out of me when I was 4 years old (no V-chip back then), and "Siege of 31 August" with Ronny Cox as a Vietnam vet who gets his just desserts for terrible war crimes. Too bad it only ran half of a season. Universal really needs to release this on DVD soon as stars like Billy Crystal, Helen Hunt, Brian Dennehey, Claude Akins, and more gave this short lived series some much needed future star power. Here's hoping they're reading this.
