Tales from the Darkside: Is “The Casavin Curse” still scary?

For a lot of us, especially those who were younger, horror in the 80s was wrapped up in Tales from the Darkside as much as it was the video store shelf. The problem was, most of the time the only thing really, truly creepy in the episodes were the opening and closing themes (and those… Read More ›
