When you say “Tales from the Crypt” most people immediately think of the Crypt Keeper. He didn’t have the most screen time but the gross, frightening, cheeky host of the 90s HBO anthology series was undoubtedly the star. And he probably won’t be back for the remake.
The story starts Thursday when it was revealed M. Night Shyamalan will produce a new version of the show for TNT sometime in the future as part of a weekly two-hour block of horror programming. Which was weird news unto itself.
