    I remember this little anthology was made for cable TV some years ago (Showtime I think) featuring Carpenter as a crypt keeper type host. I think he directed 2 of the 3 stories as well. However I don't think it's aired much any more.
    Does anybody have an idea as to which studio owns this title? I'd sure love to see it on DVD.
    EDIT: It seems Artisan owns this title and it WAS on DVD but is now out of print. C'mon Artisan, re-release this with Carpenter commentary. Please?

    Never heard of this before, however, when Artisan re releases this one, will absolutely buy it.
    Thanks Michael

    This was a great anthology! I taped it off cable when it first came out years ago, but of course eventually the tape wore out and broke. Being a huge horror fan I would love to put this one in my collection!

    If everyone had been this excited for the disc when it was available for a couple of years, it never would've gone out of print. [​IMG]

    the real stinger is I almost picked up that 3 disc horror set. Well, I hope its back out with Carpenter commentary. Hell, get Tobe Hooper in on it too, he directed one of the three segments.

    I've seen it lately at my local Borders store. Maybe I should snatch it up!
