Horror 101 – Episode 71: Tales From the REAL 3rd Creepshow – December 30th, 2017

From the depths of four twisted minds.

Welcome horror fans, to the final Threequel podcast of the year! Many have speculated about what the last film we’re covering may be. Its time for a curve ball! We’re not giving you a Part 3. We’re giving you what SHOULD have been a Part 3. What many horror veterans would consider the REAL Creepshow 3. We’re talking about John Harrison’s Tales From the Darkside: The Movie (1990). Directed by the man who scored the first Creepshow, Darkside is the cinematic crescendo of the successful Tales From the Darkside 80s TV show. This anthology film gives us three tales of terror from King, Doyle, Romero and McDowell. A splendidly fun horror movie featuring KNB Effects and budding roles from established stars. Come, end the year (and our Threequel theme) with us and learn why ‘Tales’ is the Creepshow 3 you never got but always wanted!
