A horror-themed cable channel, VOD service and website has acquired the anthology series "Tales From the Crypt," reports Deadline.com. The program was acquired by FearNet — its first off-network series acquisition.

Shows will begin airing on the linear channel Oct. 5. FearNet will show the 93 episodes in order, starting with season one, and will air them in a two-hour block on Friday nights 10 p.m. to midnight ET.

In a statement, FearNet President and General Manager Peter Block said: “’Tales From the Crypt’ was the first time that horror writers, directors and actors came together in one place to produce a TV series to celebrate the genre. ‘Tales’ had everything — comedy, gore, splatter, slash, thrill and suspense — and it quickly became appointment television.”

The report notes that “Crypt” was executive produced by Joel Silver, Richard Donner, Robert Zemeckis, Walter Hill and David Giler.
