CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution are teaming to bring you a magical gift from your childhood on September 6th. The distribution outlets will be releasing the complete series of both Friday the 13th: The Series and Tales from the Darkside, two horror TV gems dredged up from the treasure trove of the 80's.
It hasn't yet been revealed whether the format will be DVD, Blu-Ray, or both, but we'll keep an ear to the ground for you!
In Friday the 13th:
Micki Foster inherits an antique store from her Uncle Lewis, but this is no ordinary antique shop. Lewis made a deal with the devil -- in exchange for material wealth, he will sell cursed antiques. Micki, along with cousin Ryan and her partner, retired magician Jack, have the duty of recovering the antiques to be sealed in their basement, where the items can't cause more harm.
In Tales from the Darkside:
This 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.
