  • Monsters are not bad, they are good and have a heart in the Zone.

    8.0
    I enjoyed this very episode very much, just like most of the other Twilight Zone episodes. Things that I liked were: horror movies, monster masks, cemetery and supernatural powers.



    This kind of story has already been done in other movies I have seen. A monster moves next door or to the neighborhood and the kids either destroy it or become friends with it. The ending here as usual has a twist which was not that very clear or exciting at all, actually I hated it.



    Overall a good experience although if it weren't for the monster' subject this would have been a very bad episode for me.moreless

    • Bendictson: Toby, there are things in the night worse than me. Things so terrible that I've spent a hundred and forty seven years running from them. Things that wait and hide, and if one of my kind stays too long in a place, they come out. Real monsters, Toby. Real beasts.

    • Toby: You're going to kill me, and suck my blood, and recruit me into the army of the night!

    • Bendictson: Midnight. Not twelve on the clock, but mid-night. When twilight and dawn are evenly balanced, one no stronger than the other. Each pulling against the other in the opposite direction, so that the very fabric of the night is torn apart. Midnight ... when the monsters come out.

    • Mr. Michaels: Toby, keep watching the skies.
      A line made famous in the movie The Thing from Another World (1951) in which a crew of scientists fight an evil plant-alien at a remote arctic outpost.
