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.

If you were a child of the 1980's and loved horror films, or shows, then it's more than likely you watched Tales From The Darkisde at one time or another. I loved it.
I never forgot Paul Sparrer's chilling introduction. While some episodes are better than others, and many episodes are forgettable, anyone who watched this in the 80's probably never forgot the intro.

Years ago I had hoped they would, eventually, release the seasons on DVD. When they did, needless to say, I was excited.
So many great memories, and great episodes that I remember, like the pilot "Trick Or Treat", "Inside The Closet", "Halloween Candy", "Payment Overdue", "Seasons of Belief" and my personal favorite, "The Cutty Black Sow"
This DVD set contains all 90 episodes. Everyone of them with Sparrer's intro and outro.

The only thing I would have liked to have seen were more extras. Maybe interviews with guys like George Romero, or Tom Savini who directed episodes in the series.

Still, this is an amazing compilation, and anyone who grew up with this show should add it to their collection.
I watch these epsiodes and I'm 10 years old again. I LOVE it and I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoyed this show in the 1980's.

Just want you to be aware that the packaging of this series is not ideal. I was expecting a typical box set but it was the 4 separate seasons wrapped together. That would have been fine but the insert holding the third disc in each case was broken and the prongs holding them were shattered. Needless to say some discs were scratched pretty bad and some had swirls or weird markings on them. I'm guessing these were made on demand or something. This set looks cheap. Not sure you will have better luck buying the individual seasons. Anyway...I have had to purchase new DVD cases to put the discs in. Now I am just hoping they will still play...I hope you have better luck if you decide to purchase the complete series set...

Mother would yell "Go to bed", but in defiance I wanted the nightmare. It was Saturday night and as a child I could feel it in my bones. The time for cradling the macabre was at hand and behind the couch there was no safer place. To me peeking over the top of those plush cushions let me know how good it was to be alive and "Tales from the Darkside" along with various other stories bizarre in character were portals into that human condition where dread is something fantastic rather than real. Regardless the horror still haunts! Truly this is a must see for any blood thirsty fanatic, but to compare "Tales from the Darkside" to "Tales from the Crypt" is like comparing peas and carrots. Oh Lord! Not "Peas and Carrots"! The Horror! LOL! You see they were both from two completely different decades, both pushing the envelope, both with different network and societal liberties. In fact the majority of "Tales from the Crypt" came from a completely different genre altogether. Where a large sum of the Cryptkeeper's tales of irony originally spawned from comics such as "Shock Supenstories" and "Crime Patrol" with a hint of "Tales from the Crypt" "The Haunt of Fear" and "The Vault of Horror" by a single diverse mind (William M. Gains), the Darkside gives us a more supernatural aspect conjured up by some of the darkest minds of today. Contributing minds such as Tobey Hooper, Stephen King, Clive Barker and George A. Romero set "Tales from the Darkside" apart from any other TV series during a time when "The Wall" was still up and "Russia" had it's nukes pointed in my backyard. Don't get me wrong though! I still enjoy that cackle bellowing out from that shrivelled up corpes with those big bulging blue eyes. The Cryptkeeper's just as fun, but in my opinion different in many ways. I hope this was helpful in someway.Read more ›

I love this series. I love the DVDS. BUT--

There is no box! This is just the four DVD sets bound together with a plastic strip. There are no extras. There aren't even any subtitles. You get all 90 complete episodes, and hurrah for that, but I think this is the most bare bones set of disks I've ever seen. Not even a box? Come on!

I recommend this set to any and all fans of this show without reservation, which is why I'm giving it four stars, but be aware that you will be getting absolutely nothing else but the episodes, not even a box.

This show is great, a lot darker than Tales From the Crypt. And id just like to clarify that I love that show too. But Darkside always seemed to be a little more daring, almost as if they felt like they had more to prove, and Crypt just had to be the unreachable commercial bar. They are both fantastic examples of the genre, but secretly, I will chose Darkside, every time. From the almost "purposely" crappy intro, to the credits, Tales From the Darkside will kick your ass. Check out one of my many favorite episodes, "Halloween Candy"

I have not watched all of them but they appear to be of good quality. Don't get fooled by "complete series pack" which usually indicates a DVD box set. This IS NOT a DVD box set in that what you get is the individual series DVDs that you can purchase seperately. The picture and title are misleading, making you think you are getting something special. A good price considering they are 30 dollars individually though. I was very disappointed in the packaging and product description. One of the greatest shows of its kind next to the Twilight Zone, so if you were a fan of the show, it is a good buy to have an official copy of them all.
