Tales from the Darkside

Growing up as a kid in the 80's takes me back. I remember watching a slew of freaky tv shows that came on late at night. The Tales from the Darkside show stands out to me the most. The opening credits combined eerie images, a freaky theme song and a chilling narration. As a child this freaked me out more than the content of the episodes themselves.

One of my best friends when I was a kid lived in the country. I spent much of my weekends at his home playing outside in the woods and in the fields. I remember this eerie woods right on the edge of a field. We came upon it near dusk one day and it looked like it was straight out of the opening credits of the Tales from the Darkside. When the sun started setting we ever got close to creeped us out. These photos remind me of that woods.

  1. Always loved that show. Just goes to show how creepy music can make even a babbling brook scary :)


  2. I watched quite a few episodes this year when they were aired during October, loved the intro, so random.
