Don’t Be Distracted by the Fact That M. Night Shyamalan Is Curating TNT’s New Tales From the Crypt; Be Happy There’s a New Tales From the Crypt

Look, The Sixth Sense was great, and The Visit was a lot of fun. Please repeat this mantra to yourself so you can enjoy the news that TNT has resurrected the deliciously putrefied corpse of Tales From the Crypt to lead the network’s new two-hour horror block, with M. Night Shyamalan and Ashwin Rajan executive-producing the block’s content. (No word on what other programming will help flesh out the evening of genre scares, which launches next fall.) Just think of all the great directors and writers they can tap for short horror pieces! And you know what? Unbreakable was scary. It was. Unbreakable was scary; The Village wasn’t terrible; and if you saw The Happening after seeing Mark Wahlberg in the trailer, I think that one’s on you. That one’s on all of us.
