The "Tales" That Time Forgot: "Perversions of Science"

Good Lord! *choke*

It's been at least a week since we've talked about "Tales from the Crypt!" 

But don't you fret, dear reader: we're about to redeem ourselves with tales unknown to most; tales from beyond the stars! After its demise, "Tales..." sought to continue its campaign for world domination with a brand-new series that would venture into the wild world of science fiction: "Perversions of Science!" In an attempt to recapture that ol' black magic, Robert Zemeckis, Walter Hill, Gilbert Adler, A.L. Katz,  and Joel Silver returned to produce; Danny Elfman even conjured up an original theme like he did with "Tales." With so much power in its corner, it was simply too big to fail.

But it did.

Lasting only 10 episodes, the series didn't eXXXactly set the world on fire. But the potential for greatness was certainly there. "Tales..." found unmitigated success by mining the pages of  EC's "The Haunt of Fear," "The Vault of Horror," "Crime SuspenStories," and "Shock SuspenStories"; " Perversions..." adapted from EC's "Weird Science," "Weird Fantasy," and "Incredible Science Fiction," all magazines of eXXXcellent quality. And though those funnybooks lacked a ho-st, "Perversions..." assembled Chrome, a curvaceous robot who spoke eXXXclusively in seXXXual innuendo. (She's my role model, by the by!) They had a ho-st, they had the tales, they the producers... but something just didn't click. 

"Perversions" wasn't the first attempt to create a companion series to "Tales" nor was it the first adaptation of EC's sci-fi stories. The first attempt at a spinoff was "Two-Fisted Tales,"  an anthology of war/action stories. A pilot film aired in 1992, but that's an article for another day. As for the EC sci-fi adaptation, you may have heard of it: a little comedy picture en-tit-led "Weird Science." Producer Joel Silver held the film rights to EC's comics, so he adapted the book before his work on "Tales from the Crypt." While not particularly faithful, the film was based on "Made from the Future" from the fifth issue. Of course, "Weird Science" became a popular franchise... and it is probably the reason why "Perversions of Science" had an original title. 

The series was far from perfect, but it still had a lot of that brilliant "Tales" fire. Had the creators been afforded the opportunity, the show could've blossomed into something wholly remarkable. Alas, Fate (and the network) saw it fit to eXXXtinguish its flame before it could ever rage. However, what does remain ranges from good to great, the worst still being worthy of your time. And, in ho-nor of Fright Season, we have for you the Halloween episode of the series!

In "Panic,"  a group of people deal with the imagined ho-rrors of an Orson Welles-like radio personality on Halloween... but are the monsters really just the product of a fictional program? Directed by Tobe "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" Hooper, written by Andrew Kevin Walker of "Se7en", and starring Chris "Fright Night" Sarandon, this one's heavy on creep cred! Also starring Harvey Korman, Jason Lee, and Jamie Kennedy, prepare your nerves for the aptly-named... "Panic!"

Enjoy!

Beyond the Pumpkin Patch:

Four Fiendishly Festive Animated Specials for Halloween!

Fright Season is ALLLIVVVEEE, Kinky Kreeps!


Now, we know you love "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown"; It's a Halloween institution, and we dig it like a grave. Ho-wever, in 2019, it seems to be the ONLY fright season special that gets consistent airtime. It's been aired, spoofed, referenced, and merchandised to death; heck, it's more ubiquitous than candy corn and caramel apples combined! And spoiler: the Great Pumpkin never shows up! You get zero monsters; just rocks and mild depression! Well, we're here to deaden up your Halloween viewing schedule with some Peanut-free Halloween treats; specials we love to death... and beyond! The best thing about these specials? None of them have an interminable "Red Baron" sequence! All treat, no trick!

The Devil and Daniel Mouse:


Undeniably a product of the Satanic Seventies, "The Devil and Daniel Mouse" is funky-freak fable in which one half of a mouse folk duo sells her soul to the Devil for fame and fortune. It's basically an animated version of "Phantom of the Paradise," and that's just as groovy as can be! The Devil here is legitimately creepy, and the songs are far-out and outta sight! This one's Faust and Fur-ious, fright fiends!

Festival of Family Classics - Jack O'Lantern:


What would a ho-liday be without an outrageous offering from Rankin/Bass? This scarytale reveals the "true" origin of the Jack O'Lantern in that inimitably weird (but cozy) Rankin/Bass style. The tit-ular character is an Irish pumpkinhead who fights an army of ghosts controlled by a witch; this is just prime Halloween goodness, folks! In a just world, Jack O'Lantern would be a ho-rrorday icon! 

Billy & Mandy's Jacked-Up Halloween:


From one pumpkinhead to another, we have "Billy & Mandy's Jacked-Up Halloween," the twisted tale of a pumpkin-topped prankster with a vendetta against the Grim Reaper! Spawned from the popular "The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy," this sinister special carries much of the show's trademark ghoulishness and absurd humor. If an army of demonic pumpkins doesn't put you in a festive mood, there's nothing we can do for you! 

Garfield's Halloween Adventure:


This is it: the Halloween special supreme! Nothing tops this one in my little black book! It's scary, it's funny, and it has the MOST TERRIFYING GHOSTS IN ANIMATION! Ho-ly Hell, they're freakier than the fiends from "The Fog!" And they're just one of a million reasons why this is the king of all Halloween specials! If you watch only one of these, make it this one! 

Halloween Playlist

We're deep into fright season, Ho-rror Ho-mies! Halloween's creeping up on us, and it's given us the heebie-jeebies in a big, bad way! Ghosts 'n' ghouls are in the air, and every hour is the witching hour until November. To keep your spirits restless, we've Frankenstein-ed a positively putrid playlist of Monster-ous Musical Melodies that'll have you whistlin' past the graveyard! It's a creepy compilation of toe-tappin' terror tunes from every era known to man and monster.
