Tales from the Darkside

This is the introduction for the George Romero created horror anthology series that ran from 1984 through 1988.

“Man lives in the sunlit world of what he believes to be reality.
But… there is, unseen by most, an underworld, a place that is just as real,
but not as brightly lit… a DARKSIDE.”

As a child I remember lying in bed at night terrified and intrigued as I listening to my parents watch Tales from the Darkside in the living room down the hallway.  As soon as those opening notes of the introduction played I covered my head with the blankets and tried not to listen as I knew I was in for something really scary.  However, the burgeoning horror fan inside me kept one ear turned toward the television as I imagined what was happening on the screen as I listened.
