    okay

    This watchable, if unspectacular, adapation of the great TV show (an anthology of 4 episodes: the first an original story, the other 3 remakes of episodes) is, unfortunately, best remembered for the tragic on-set death of actor Vic Morrow & two children, than it is as simply a film. John Landis directed the wonderfully freaky prologue (involving Dan Aykroyd & Albert Brooks) as well as the unfinished 1st segment in which Morrow plays a racist who gets a taste of what he's dished out when he finds himself somehow transported back to WWII-era Germany, the 1960's Deep South, & 1960's Vietnam where he finds himself on the receiving end of the illogical persecution. Next is Steven Spielberg's "Kick the Can," which is nice & upbeat, but, surprisingly, rather dull, despite the always watchable Scatman Crothers as a magician who, shall we say, gives new life to the residents of a nursing home. Third is Joe Dante's "It's a Good Life," about a boy with super powers, which is more lively and humorous. Finally, we get to the great stuff with George Miller's remake of the classic "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" episode with the wonderful John Lithgow playing William Shatner's role as the super nervous airline passenger who's the only one who can see a gremlin sabataging the plane in midflight. Put simply, this would probably be viewed as a classic if it was just the prologue & the final segment.

    Great Movie Adaptation of the TV Series

    It seems to me that 'Twilight Zone: the Movie' has unfortunately been overlooked as being a good movie over the years, having instead been deemed a 'focal point' of filmmaking tragedy (in regards to the deaths of actor Vic Morrow and 2 child actors, who were killed on set during a helicopter stunt sequence gone terribly wrong). That aside, 'Twilight Zone: the Movie' has some really great material, some of which was taken directly from the original TV show and retold here with better special effects. Widescreen, but disappointingly with no bonus features. Still highly recommended though.

    Twilight Zone the movie is finally here. I've been looking forward to this for some time now. Digitally restored bringing this eighties classic sci-fi back to life. Based upon the television series by rod serling who brought you into another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. I don't think that I have to tell you to go and get this. Your probably on your way right now.

    Very cool movie which contains four updated Twilight Zone episodes. It's a shame actor Vic Morrow lost his life during filming of this movie.
