The 1980s and '90s TV scene played host to multiple memorable horror anthology series, but perhaps none shone brighter than HBO's Tales from the Crypt. Based on the legendary EC Comics that drew so much ire from moral guardians back in the '50s, Crypt was one of HBO's first attempts at original programming, and quickly became a huge hit. Free of the censorship standards present on broadcast or basic cable, Crypt presented tales full of graphic gore, bad language, and sometimes nudity.
Crypt proved so popular that the series ended up lasting 7 seasons on HBO, and also became a staple in syndicated re-runs for quite a long time as well, albeit edited for content. Crypt also produced two theatrical movies in the '90s, Demon Knight and Bordello of Blood. With all that in mind, it's no surprise that someone would eventually decide to resurrect the Crypt brand name, and that's exactly what TNT tried to do last year.
In early 2016, it was announced that TNT - along with producer M. Night Shyamalan - was planning to reboot the Crypt franchise for modern audiences, and using it to anchor a new "horror block" of programming on the cable network. Unfortunately, those looking forward to some new Crypt stories had their hopes dashed a couple months back, as the project was stalled indefinitely due to legal issues. However, that hasn't stopped a couple promo videos for the reboot from making their way online. The first is above, while the other is below.
