Produced by George A. Romero after the success of CREEPSHOW, this 1980s anthology series boasted a shocking tale every week. Unnerving synth lines and bare-bones production values were hallmarks of the syndicated program, which tended toward supernatural plotlines but reluctantly admitted sci-fi and comedy into its uncanny netherworld. Frequently, its material came adapted from horror's most popular authors, including Stephen King and Clive Barker. And, in TWILIGHT ZONE fashion, it relished throwing a cruel twist at its characters by every episode's end. This collection presents the show's complete first season.
Description by Paramount Home Entertainment:
This 30-minute horror/fantasy anthology series follows in the vein of The Twilight Zone. Each week presents another standalone story of horror fantasy, and/or science fiction. Some episodes are gruesome, a few are of a lighter comedic style. Like many such shows, Tales... adapted the work of famous genre authors of the period such as Harlan Ellison, Stephen King, and Clive Barker. Many episodes also featured veteran actors of the 40's and 50's that saw very little work in their later years.
