Twilight Zone: The Movie

By Marshall Fine

How's this for a Twilight Zone kind of irony? The movie version of Rod Serling's landmark sci-fi TV series turns out to be less memorable than the episodes upon which it was based. Despite the presence of four of-that-moment directors, the film--based on three TV episodes and one original idea--is remembered more for its prologue (starring Dan Aykroyd and Albert Brooks) and for its offscreen tragedy (the death of star Vic Morrow and two children when a helicopter crashed while filming a key scene). Otherwise, the film's high-gloss production values only serve to mire the old, solid stories. The best segment of the film centers on John Lithgow as a deliriously overexcited airline passenger, whose very active fear of flying is embodied in the gremlin he (and only he) sees on the plane's wing, wreaking havoc with the film's engine.
