TV Horror Comes Home When FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE COMPLETE TV SERIES and TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE: THE COMPLETE SERIES Arrives This September!

unnamedSeptember 6th looks to be quite the day for classic TV horror. Thanks to the crew over at CBS DVD and Paramount, both FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE COMPLETE SERIES and TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE: THE COMPLETE SERIES are hitting DVD in interesting new packing. Personally, I’m a fan of both, and with last year’s AWESOME Curious Goods: Behind the Scenes of FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE SERIES book by Alyse Wax being such an in depth refresher, it’ll be cool to revisit the episodes that stood out in that great read.

FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE COMPLETE SERIES
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.

TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE: THE COMPLETE SERIES

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.

While we were sent the release date for each title, nothing was said mentioning any supplemental material so it’d be safe to say to that this double release will mostly be carried over special features from the individual seasons’ releases. Will you fright fanatics be picking these babies up?
