Horror director M. Night Shyamalan is bringing Tales From the Crypt back from the dead.
Tales From the Crypt will lead TNT’s new two-hour horror block set to premiere next fall. The episodes will be a mixture of original stories from William Gaines’ 1950s EC Comics series and new tales produced and curated by Shyamalen and his partner Ashwin Rajan.
In a statement, Shyamalan said, “To be part of such a beloved brand like Tales From the Crypt, something I grew up watching, and to also have the chance to push the boundaries of genre television as a whole, is an inspiring opportunity that I can’t wait to dive into.”
Tales From the Crypt is perhaps best remembered for its seven-season run on HBO in the 1990s. In the subsequent years, there have been numerous spin-off television series and movies, most of which have been downright awful. As the man behind psychological-horror films like Signs and The Visit, perhaps Shyamalan is just the right person to helm such a revival
