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.
Half-hour stories with many themes, including; horror, twists, black-magic, and science fiction Introduced by a puppet called "The Crypt Keeper". A cross between The Twilight Zone (1959) and modern horror movies. Not suitable for the very young or squeamish.Written by
While Animatronics Expert and Puppet Master Kevin Yagher was in the final stages of designing the Crypt Keeper, he tried on a few noses, to see which would look best for the character, who had already shed lips, hair and most of his teeth, but none looked quite right. Director and Producer Robert Zemeckis simply remarked, "You know, you don't necessarily have to have a nose." See more »

When aired on the Sci-Fi channel, the episodes are missing most of the gore. The impact of violent acts are normally cut, sex and nudity is cut, and language is toned down. See more »
I have always been a fan of the series. This is the kind of stuff I grew up on. I loved this show when I was a kid, so much that I even read some of the old comics. There is always a moral to each story. (most of which seem to involve betraying lovers for some odd reason) Although some episodes are so far out there they come off as being lame at times I can't help but love them. Every episode is like it's own little horror movie. I highly recommend the series,especially now that it is coming out on DVD. You get a lot of entertainment for your money. Thats all I have to say about this series and as the crypt keeper would say "Good night boils and ghouls."
