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.

Special Features

None.

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-

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. :)

First off, my original review was deleted. Why? I don't know. All I can say is DO NOT SUPPORT or BUY season 2 until Paramount releases this series with its ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACKS/SCORES!!! Season one was butchered with new music added to each & every episode so if you are a "TRUE FAN" of the series,... YOU WILL NOTICE THE DIFFERENCE! I refused to watch any further episodes on season one after the 3rd episode. I recall the original scores of EVERY episode & scores are what make some scenes memorable, i was thoroughly disgusted & angered! Ok Paramount, why don't you re-release the classic 70's musical flick "GREASE" & re-dub all the music & scores, you would have TONS of fans screaming at you to stick to the original soundtrack & yet you seem to think that horror fans will not notice the UNSUBTLE music scores you have replaced in 12 episodes of season 2. I will not buy this series until it is released in its ORIGINAL RELEASE!! I urge you "TRUE FANS" to not purchase this garbage until Paramount decides to release this series with its ORIGINAL music scores. Do not encourage Paramount to release any further seasons of Tales From The Darkside by purchasing this junk! Write Paramount & DEMAND the original shows & not this garbage. If you are a TRUE FAN of this series you will not support the poor judgement Paramount has made on these 12 episodes (regarding score/tracks). This trash gets 2 bloody thumbs down, poor judgement on Paramount's behalf & who ever was involved with this release, disgraceful. REMEMBER, with the new score tracks it is not an original release!!!! Schroeder (Publisher/Owner) of Cult Movies Magazine/WACK "O" Publishing/DJ WACK "O"/Orbital Traxx Records

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.

Well, well. Paramount never seems to learn their lessons. The first season of this classic and wonderful show gave us a crappy commentary, a murky looking print, and only 3 episodes that kept their original score. All the rest were butchered. Now, after months of waiting, Season two arrives. Does it meet my expectations for a good product.
Hahahahahahahahahahaha.
Of course not.
Does it meet my expectations of what I have come to expect from Paramount?
Of course it does.
I know perfectly well that they hate horror fans and release shoddy material all the time... so I guess I was expecting this all along.

Season two now has arrived. 12 episodes have been re-scored (butchered) and 12 have kept their music, so half the release has been changed. The video still looks like a crappy VHS tape of course, and this time around, Paramount only gives us a crumby 5 minute interview with George Romero.

The episodes with changed music include:
The Impressionist
Lifebomb
The Devil's Advocate ( no more classic tune at the conclusion)
The Trouble with Mary Jane
Effect and Cause
Dream Girl
A New Lease on Life
Printer's Devil
The Shrine
The Last Car ( A great score that is now completely ruined!)
The Uhappy Medium
The Casavin Curse (one of my favorite episodes, now butchered)

Episodes with their score intact are: Ring around the redhead
Parlour Floor Front
Halloween Candy
The Satanic Piano
Distant Signals
Ursa Minor
Monsters In My Room
Comet Watch
The Old Soft Shoe
A Choice of Dreams
Strange Love
Fear of Floating

Utterly ridiculous! I am praying that Shout factory or Anchor Bay/Blue Underground get the rights to this show because they care about films and they care about consumers. Paramount cares about neither. Just the almighty dollar. Save your cash and download the REAL episodes online!
