"You're Travelling Through Another Dimension...Next Stop, the Twilight Zone."
Four short horrorific tales are anthologized in this film as a tribute to Rod Serling and his popular TV series.

"An exhilarating flight of fancy. Imaginative and witty.  Gary Arnold, The Washington Post
"The film draws us back into a uniquely haunting world"  Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Editor's Note
Based on the popular television series, this film is a collection of four frightening tales of the supernatural, each by a different director--Joe Dante, Steven Spielberg, John Landis, and George Miller. The film opens with Dan Aykroyd and Albert Brooks as two hapless road-trippers who tell scary stories to pass the time. The four segments that follow include some updated re-creations of classic Twilight Zone episodes.

Plot Summary
In this film adaptation of Rod Serling's classic sci-fi TV show, four eerie stories are presented, paying homage to the master. In the spine-chilling prologue, Dan Aykroyd and Albert Brooks are driving down a dark and winding road listening to "Midnight Special" at top volume when the tape suddenly cuts short and they are forced to find a new form of road-trip entertainment: scary stories. Suddenly the road trip isn't as fun anymore as the driver and the passenger try to outscare one another. In the first segment (directed by John Landis), a bitter and cynical racist receives a major dose of his own medicine. Steven Spielberg's segment is a retelling of the "Kick the Can" episode, in which a group of elderly people try to recapture their childhood. Joe Dante updates the classic episode that starred Billy Mumy as a monster who controls a small town. Finally, George Miller takes on the fabulous episode "Terror at 40,000 Feet," in which John Lithgow has a flight to remember. (The part was originally played to perfection by William Shatner on the television show.)

Professional Reviews

"...[A] tantalizing teaser opening followed by three sketches of increasing quality..." 06/15/1983

HorrorWatch 8 of 10
"Based on the television show by Rod Serling, Twilight Zone: The Movie is shot in the style used in Creepshow and Cat's Eye, four separate shorts collected for one movie. Each segment is also helmed by a different director and with names like Landis, Spielberg and Dante you can expect some chills and thrills at the least...Twilight Zone also has a great opening sequence with Dan Ackroyd that made me jump and the whole film is narrated by Burgess Meredith, and he adds so much class to the film...Sadly, Twilight Zone: The Movie is known for a real life tragedy. During the filming of the first short, a helicopter crashed on the set and killed actor Vic Morrow and two small children instantly. Although the families sued the filmmakers it was determined to be only an accident and no one was charged in the deaths...If you liked the TV show or movies like Creepshow this one is sure to please."
