"Man lives in the sunlit world of what he believes to be reality," began every episode of Tales from the Darkside. "But there is, unseen by most, an underworld. A place that is just as real, but not as brightly lit. A darkside...." Obviously that ominous prologue stuck with me since childhood, when I would rush home from school in order to catch reruns of the series on the then-new Sci-Fi Channel. This horror anthology series aired in the 1980s and while it is not as well known as similar anthology shows like Twilight Zone, Night Gallery, and The Outer Limits, it is certainly as fun.
