The Darkroom

"You're in a house. Maybe your own...maybe one you've never seen before. You feel it. Something evil. You run, but there's no escape...nowhere to turn. You feel something beckoning you...drawing you into the terror that awaits you in the Darkroom!"
One of the best horror anthology TV shows, is also one of the least seen.  The series aired on ABC for one short season,  The series had quite a few creepy and disturbing episodes.  Four episodes were deemed to disturbing for TV and were used in the movie "Nightmares".

James Coburn was the host who introduced each story while in the titular Darkroom.  The series had episodes directed by Paul Lynch (Prom Night), Rick Rosenthal (Halloween II) and Jeffery Bloom (Flowers in the Attic).  

It also boasted episodes written by Robert Bloch (Psycho) William F,Nolan (Burnt Offerings) and Robert McCammon.

I'm hoping that this will be released on DVD/Blu-Ray eventually.
