It looks like the Tales from the Crypt horror block being developed by TNT and M. Night Shyamalan is a go.
The network has ordered a ten-episode season of Tales from the Crypt; a pilot for a series called Time of Death, and the development of another entitled Creatures.
Tales from the Crypt, which will feature a reinvented Cryptkeeper, will be the core around which the horror block will be built. It’s an anthology series based on the (in)famous EC Comics series.
Time of Death is a seasonal anthology series (one tale per season) detailing one person’s single ‘long night of hell.’
Creatures is ‘a sophisticated psychological thriller that tells the disturbing tale of two former best friends who, at 12 years old, tried to cut out their classmate’s heart as a sacrifice to an internet bogeyman they invented’ that comes back to haunt them as adults.
