A horror anthology about a family of monsters watching a different horror story every week on their TV. Each tale is separate, often cautionary with occasional dark humor and irony and features various deadly creatures.

A modern revival of the classic science fiction horror anthology show The Outer Limits (1963). Episodes often have twist-endings and involve aliens. Sometimes, a story from one episode continues in a later episode.
Each episode of this TV series depicts a short, strange tale...with a twist! With eerie stories vaguely reminiscent of 'The Twilight Zone,' viewers learn to appreciate that things are often not as they seem. The usual plot formula is comprised of an initial normal, mundane situation that gradually begins to get off-kilter, with suspense building up to the final, chilling, surprise conclusion. Written by

I have recently begun watching this series. I noticed a few things. one
, the other writer is right about the new talent. Examples of that
included Christian Slater and Seth Green. Two, Most of the stories
tried to teach a lesson. Examples included the Pilot "Trick or Treat"
in which an elderly old miser runs a haunted house where he invites the
kids to come and look for their parents IOU's. In the end however he
gets whats coming to him. It was kind of a take-off of a "A Christmas
Carol" Other like "The Satanic Piano" and "Printer's Devil" reinforced
the saying that's there's no such thing as a free Lunch. In Order to
get something, you usually have to give something else up. I really
liked the episode "I'll Give You a Million". I mean the idea that
someone would sell their soul for a Million Dollars is just amazing.
Also, a lot of the very best actors ever guest starred on the episodes.
People like Danny Aiello, Christian Slater, Seth Green, Justine
Bateman, and many others. This series is one of the best Horror/Sci-Fi
series to ever come out. Everyone should have a chance to see this. I
know the first 2 seasons are out on DVD Boxed sets but I don't know if
they'll ever release the last 2 seasons.
