- movie Description
Twilight Zone: The Movie is a science fiction and horror film from 1983 produced by John Landis and Steven Spielberg. The film is based on the television series of the same name that was created by Rod Sterling in the early 60s. An anthology movie, the film features four distinct stories, most based on an episode of the television show and each helmed by a different famous director. The first, "Time Out," features a prejudiced man who ends up facing racism of his own. Directed by John Landis himself, the segment stars Vic Morrow and is the only original story in the film. During the shooting of this segment, Vic Morrow and two child actors were killed in a helicopter crash. The second segment, "Kick the Can," is directed by Steven Spielberg and stars Scatman Crothers as an old man who may have discovered the secret to eternal youth. Joe Dante directs the third segment, "It's A Good Life," starring Kathleen Quinlan. It focuses around a family with a child who possess unnatural and horrifying powers. The last segment, "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet," stars John Lithgow and is directed by George Miller. It is perhaps the most famous of the four segments, and focuses on a gremlin-like creature on the wing of a flying airplane. Twilight Zone: The Movie is narrated by Burgess Meredith, though the actor never appears on screen.moreless
