Canceled Too Soon #117: 'Nightmare Classics' (1989)

After the success of Shelley Duvall's award-winning children's series "Faerie Tale Theatre," she produced a short-lived horror anthology called "Nightmare Classics," featuring all-star adaptations of classic gothic tales like "The Turn of the Screw," "Carmilla" and "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." It was an ambitious series that aired on Showtime, and then completely vanished from the popular consciousness.

"Nightmare Classics" starred big names like Amy Irving, Balthazar Getty, David Hemmings, Ione Sky, Meg Tilly, Roddy McDowall, Laura Dern, Rue MacClanahan, C. Thomas Howell, John Stockwell and Daphne Zuniga, and yet nobody ever talks about it. Is there a reason? Or could it be that "Nightmare Classics" was... Canceled Too Soon?

You'll find out in this all-new episode of the Canceled Too Soon podcast, hosted by film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold! And stick around, because we've got more terrifying failed TV shows all this month, in an event we call SCARYTOBER!
