Welcome to the premiere of our brand new show 'Talks from the Darkside!' Joined by Chris Bahr from Tape Hell, the Dumpster trio is going lead you right into the Darkside™ of man's domain! Spanning 4 years and 90 episodes, 'Tales from the Darkside' was a crucial part of horror television and storytelling. So, join us as we tackle the entire series, with plenty of laughs and shrieks to be had along the way! It all starts with the original pilot that launched a legacy.
00 Trick or Treat:
A rich and spiteful old man named Gideon Hackles, who holds an obsession for documenting and exploiting debts owed to him, annually offers trick-or-treaters the chance to search his house on Halloween night for their parents' IOUs, only to terrify them with animatronic "ghosts". Over the course of the night, Mr. Hackles finds himself terrified by real ghosts... or in this case, demons.
Guest-starring Barnard Hughes as Gideon Hackles, and Max Wright, written by George A. Romero.
Original air date: October 29, 1983
