TNT reports that Shyamalan will be serving as executive producer for the upcoming 2 hour horror block. The segment featuring the Tales From the Crypt remake will have both new and original stories, in addition to an "American Horror Story"-esque one hour anthology and other content.
While this sounds alright in theory, Bloody Disgusting has reported a potentially major detractor to fans of the original.
No Crypt Keeper. Everyone's favorite deadtime story teller,voiced by John Kassir, was created for the HBO show and the network still owns the rights to the character. Kassir himself took to Twitter to share his opinion on the matter, saying:
|This doesn't bode well...|
While this is all new information, a lot could change between now and the release of the show. However, the feelings are overwhelming waves of 'meh.'
