This is my 4th re-up for this theme. It's a popular one. I now have an updated version with the voice over that has much better sound quality than the previous download.

This was a request from fellow reader R.J. Sayer. Sorry it took so long. As an added bonus for having to wait for these two tracks I have an additional song thrown in. Donald Rubinstein's theme he composed for the "Monsters" TV show that was a similar show to "Tales From the Darkside", but from what I recall had some added humor at times.
"Tales From the Darkside" was a fun horror themed TV show in the vein of Twilight Zone and Outer Limits. There were some great episodes. One I watched on youTube was called "Halloween Candy". It was a pretty good episode that captured the feel of the show.
I've read that George Romero originally wanted to do the show as "Creepshow", but Warner Bros. had the rights to that name or something like that so they ended up doing it as "Darkside"
I have both the instrumental and version with the voice over. It's a great creepy theme that gave me an uneasy feeling when I was little.
Man lives in the sunlit world
of what he believes to be reality.
But, there is, unseen by most, an underworld,
a place that is just as real,
but not as brightly lit.....
