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.

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. :)

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.

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.

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
