The anthology "Kaleidoscope of Horrors", the first part of which was released in 1982, has long become a cult in its genre. The teenagers of the 80s instantly fell in love with comics, creepy plots and man-made monsters that came to life on the screens, created before the time of the ubiquitous CGI. At that time, two masters of horror were engaged in film almanac: the legendary George A. Romero shot stories based on the works of Stephen King. And according to Collider, the horror streaming service Shudder has decided to replicate the anthology's success by giving the green light to the reboot of Kaleidoscope of Horror as a TV show.
