Tales From The Crypt Resurrected
By Drax Largo on January 9th, 2016
Well, I suppose most of you have heard by now Tales from the Crypt is being resurrected at TNT by none other than M. Night Shyamalan. Naturally, at this early stage, it’s still too early to tell what format the revival will take; however, the one key detail everyone’s been talking about is whether or not the Crypt Keeper will return.
According to one of M. Night Shyamalan’s tweets, the iconic host will indeed be returning:
.@slashfilm I’d never make Tales without the CK! Will be a new take on him as the puppet is property of HBO. Promise he’ll be cool and dark!

Okay, not a total surprise they’ll be taking a fresh direction with the horrific host. In fact, I’m glad they’ll be doing so. The old Kevin Yagher-created animatronic voiced by John Cassir would’ve been beating a dead horse, methinks, even though I still love watching the old episodes.
As for the episodes themselves, again, development just started, so it’ll be a bit before those details are unearthed. No doubt, though, we’ll be seeing some remakes from the old HBO days.
Having said that, I don’t care what episodes Shyamalan and his team choose to do, just do them well, damnit!
Stay tuned, as more is bound to come in on this one in the coming months.
