Editorial Reviews

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Series From A Great Decade. September 24, 2011
Verified Purchase
Tales From The Darkside, is one of the best series from the 1980's, especially the second season. I thought out of all the seasons, the second is the best, I notice when the SyFy channel carries it they usually air the ones from the second season, I don't know if it's just ransomly done, or if it's planned but before I purchased the DVD's I would try to catch the SyFy airing; because I love the series so much. I thought the DVD's were done well considering it's an old series, the DVD's were clear, cut well, and the layout is great.

Thank You,
-Kris L. CocKayne-

4.0 out of 5 stars Next time, enjoy the daylight.. September 18, 2009
I love Tales From The Darkside. It's a little before my time but I grew up watching reruns and now the SyFy channel has brought it back. Thank God for that! But what's even better is that they're releasing it on DVD! If you love The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, Night Gallery...etc. You LOVE Tales From The Darkside. And season 2 is just as eerie, creepy and awesome. Since I was a kid and even now, hearing the theme song gives me chills. It's worth every penny. Believe me. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars I am positively not a fan of horror shows June 22, 2013
So why would I be giving this item 5 stars?

Because of two of the episodes! "Ring Around The Redhead" is a delightful fantasy. And "Distant Signals" is a perfect gem. I enjoyed the 23 minutes of this show more than I did most full SF movies - it would rank in MY top 10, despite being so brief.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Show on TV... EVER!!! April 6, 2010
That's what I think of Tales from the Darkside anyways. I'm sure I wasn't the only kid who wanted cartoons to hurry up and get over so they could watch this show, followed immediately by "Monsters" another great show by the same people.(Hopefully this will see a DVD release as well?) When the SciFi channel had marathons, I would record them, trying to get every episode. It seemed like they kept NOT playing 8 particular episodes. YEARS later, when I heard this was gonna be a DVD, I was getting a Christmas time feeling in August. So far the one thing that is upsetting people about the DVD set is the "music being changed". I watched the DVD and the music being different really didn't bother me. Seeing as this is my favorite show, you think I would freak out worse than anyone about the soundtrack being different from the one I grew to love. But it really isn't that bad. The original music is way better, don't get me wrong. Legal issues I guess are the reason things got changed, and I would rather have the episodes NOW than wait for those people to sort out the music issue. Besides, they still re-run all episodes on SyFy in marathons. TiVo them and dump them to disc if you want to hear the old soundtrack. Have fun skipping commercials, and seeing the SyFy "Coming Soons" getting plugged in the lower part of the screen. I think the DVD's are great.

5.0 out of 5 stars HALLOWEEN CANDY - Makes me the meanest on the block. October 28, 2009
Finally! I wish they would have released this a month ago. With just a few days away from Halloween, you don't have many opportunities to watch this classic Halloween episode. Since October of 1985, this episode has been a Halloween tradition in my family. Like watching John Carpenter's Halloween 1, 2 and 4, this show is part of that yearly tradition. Best line... "if I'm lucky one of those kids will drop dead of sugar overdose right there on the door step. It's no wonder you're so popular in this neighborhood". One more, Mrs. Clausen's dead, makes me the meanest on the block.
