Choosing A Modern ‘Tales From The Crypt’ Cast: Television Terror

Welcome back, everyone! Spooky Season 2022 may be over, but it doesn’t mean I’m finished! Today, I started a somewhat new remake series. Since (as far as I know) the Tales From The Crypt reboot is dead in the water, I decided to pick modern casts for the original series. I asked the wonderful members of Our Horror Family to help me choose which episode to do first, and they chose Television Terror! Television Terror follows a TV shock journalist as he does a live special inside an eerie haunted house. I made my casting choices based on age, looks, and how I picture their overall performance. I hope you enjoy and stay tuned for future installments in this series!! (REMINDER: This is just hypothetical fun! I respect everyone mentioned and this series isn’t meant to tear anyone down or be disrespectful!!)
