MONSTERS: THE COMPLETE SERIES Comes to DVD this March! Remember this one? In 1988 I was 18 years old and even at that jaded age I remember it as being truly creepy. I was always more of a Twilight Zone than Tales from the Darkside guy, more plot over effects. Though in spite of this show being much closer to Tales in style I enjoyed it, and still enjoyed it (despite the dated effects) when I’ve caught it in reruns.
Here’s the press release from Entertainment One:

MONSTERS Series Intro
Leave the lights on! The fan-favorite syndicated horror anthology series from executive producer Richard P.
