It’s been fifteen years since HBO’s horror series Tales from the Crypt ended its seven-season run, so I suppose it’s not terribly surprising that someone has decreed it time for a… reboot? Remake? I’m not sure what, exactly. Point is, there’s going to be another one. And it actually sounds pretty different from the old one. Read more details after the jump.

I’m not sure I’m totally comfortable with a comic book about fantastical monsters from the midst of WW2 being called Night and Fog, the same name as Alain Resnais’ shocking, often very hard to swallow documentary about the real atrocities of that war. All the same, that’s the name the comic book had and now it’s coming to our cinemas, I’m sure it will be the name of the new movie too.
A press release from Studio 407, the comics publishers, has today announced that the producers Gil Adler and Shane McCarthy will be shepherding the Night and Fog adaptation from page to screen. After the break, some quotage from Adler, and a few pages from the first issue of the strip.
