Pre-order TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE: THE MOVIE (1990) on Collector's Edition Blu-ray


Scream Factory is releasing Tales from the Darkside: The Movie (1990) for the first time on a Collector's Edition Blu-ray on August 25, 2020. A limited edition poster, featuring the cover artwork (above) by Laz Marquez, was available exclusively from the Scream Factory website but has since SOLD OUT as of July 25, 2020. Check out the synopsis, special features, trailers/tv ads, soundtrack vinyl, plus The Halloween / Trick or Treat Scene you probably don't remember seeing from the film below.

Brace yourself for some KILLER stories. From the clever and creepy minds of Stephen King (Pet Sematary), Michael McDowell (Beetlejuice), George A. Romero (Dawn Of The Dead) and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (creator of Sherlock Holmes), comes an all-star anthology of horror.

SYNOPSIS: To keep from being eaten by a modern-day witch (Deborah Harry, Videodrome), a young paperboy weaves three twisted stories to distract her. In "Lot 249," a vengeful college student (Steve Buscemi, Fargo) resuscitates an evil mummy to teach unsuspecting student bodies (Julianne Moore, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Christian Slater, Mr. Robot) a lesson in terror. Then, "Cat From Hell" is a furry black feline who cannot be killed ... he may have nine lives, but those who cross his path are not so lucky. Finally, in "Lover's Vow," a stone gargoyle comes to life ... to commit murder. In this classic cult favorite, fear comes in threes.

I just bought this on VHS along with the first two Creepshow movies as a trilogy. I love the last 2 stories, especially Buster Poindexter's cat mouth scene, and the finale of the third story always makes me feel uneasy after watching. Check out the short scene of kids returning home from trick or treating in the animated GIF below:
