A new dimension in terror!
The Twilight Zone was a popular science-fiction TV series that originally aired in the 1950s and 1960s and would mark a generation. Twilight Zone: The Movie takes four of the original tales and gives them a significant upgrade. The themes explored are racism, aging, family and mental illness. As a rule of thumb, the more we advance in the film, the better the stories get.
The first segment is very taboo. The protagonist is a racist man who suddenly becomes the martyr of every ethnicity he hates. The second story turns a handful of elders young again and makes us reflect on aging and death. It is beautiful, soothing and sad. Story 3; the most creative, has the best special effects and craziest storyline. Story 4 is terrifying and will make you fear airplanes.
Twilight Zone: The Movie is in the upper tier of anthology films. It starts with science fiction and fantasy then slowly escalates into terror. It was written and directed by the best filmmakers around and is way ahead of its time. On a technical level, this production is nearly flawless.
