The Crypt Reopens
Hello, kiddies. It looks like M. Night Shyamalan is opening the crypt back up in a revamped version of Tales from the Crypt. That’s right, and it’s going to be a part of the new two-hour horror-themed block that will be aired on TNT. The plots for the episodes will be based on the original comics by William Gaines as well as new plots not seen in the comics before.
TNT president is hopeful that this will be the start of something amazing and will pave the way for many different shows to help take up that two-hour block. Here is what he had to say at the Television Critics Association on Thursday, “We’re going to put a variety of different genre shows, some of which may have a weird sense of humor, some of which may be actually downright frightening, some of which may be a unique blend of genres, but all united under the ‘Tales From the Crypt’ brand. Night is definitely going to direct, most likely the first one, and we’ll see how that evolves.”
Night seems to be optimistic about the project, stating that this is an “inspiring opportunity” that he can’t wait to dive into. I just hope he doesn’t throw too many twists at us and keeps that same dark/comedic feel we all know at love. How do you guys feel about this reboot? Let us know in the comments below!
