TV Horror Anthology - Darkroom

Your host: James Coburn
7 episodes and 1 movie
ABC 1981-2

Short lived series with some nice moments, slightly hampered by the 70s Made-For-TV vibe.  "Closed Circuit" has a Videodrome thing going.  Robert Bloch's "The Bogeyman Will Get You" from his 1946 Weird Tales story is familiar from every 50s horror comic that copied it.  The series probably suffered in popularity due to it's depressing and downbeat nature, like Tales From the Crypt without the humor.
