In hopes of following in the footsteps of other great shows such as The Twilight Zone and Tales from the Crypt, Tales from the Dark Side focuses on the paranormal and darker side of life. Unfortunately, it is nowhere as successful as its forefathers.
TDS is more cheesy that scary, which is a huge no-no if you want to be taken seriously in the world of horror and sci-fi.
As a huge horror junky, I attempted to revisit this show when the Sci-Fi channel began airing it on Mondays. Sadly, it was just to cheesy for me to get into. I think that this says a lot as I am easily pleased by anything from this film genre.
All in all, I wouldn't really recommend this show to anyone. I would, however, probably sit through a few episodes if nothing else was on.
