Shelley Duvall ruled cable television in the 1980s, with her award-winning kids show FAERIE TALE THEATRE, which adapted classic faerie tales with all-star casts, and warmed the hearts of an entire generation of kids. But a lot of those kids never knew about her short-lived spin-off series NIGHTMARE CLASSICS, which adapted timeless tales of terror like THE TURN OF THE SCREW, CARMILLA and THE STRANGE CASE OF DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE into hour-long shows for teen audiences.
NIGHTMARE CLASSICS stars Amy Irving, David Hemmings, Roddy McDowell, Meg Tilly, Ione Sky, Laura Dern, Rue McClanahan, C. Thomas Howell, John Stockwell and Daphne Zuniga. But was it really CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold explore this forgotten horror series in the first installment of SCARYTOBER, a whole month dedicated to short-lived scary shows!
