Join the Darkside
If you are a child of the 80's or love b-movies and spooky television anthologies, you'll love this in-depth look at the best of the worst.
This show is awesome
I especially like it when the hosts hate the episode and can barely bring themselves to discuss it.
Take a trip through the dark door
Tales From the Darkside was a horrifying syndcated show in the mid 80s. Decades later, the low budget strings of the boogeyman can be seen to hilarious effect. Matt and Jen are great at disecting the pieces of gnarly mangled plot lines.
