Long time ZONE readers know that one of my biggest pleasures as a kid was staying up late and watching scary movies and tv shows.
I still get a kick out ’em.
You can imagine how much I enjoy it when the Scifi channel runs it’s Twilight Zone marathon.
Starting at 11PM tomorrow night and running until 4AM on the 5th, you can tune in and watch the classic Twilight Zone episodes from the 60’s. While I doubt that many of us will last for all 29 hours, there are many episodes worth checking out, including two of my favorites.
The first, “Terror at 20,000 Feet” involves a man [played by William Shatner] who has just been released from a mental institution.
On a plane ride home he sees a creature on the wing of the plane trying to destroy the engine… but no one else sees it. He knows it’s out there, but everyone believes that he’s having another breakdown…
The second is called “To Serve Man.”
Aliens arrive on Earth and all indications are they came in peace… but do they really?
Even if you can’t watch them all [and who can?], maybe you can plan to tune in to see an old favorite or one you’ve never seen before.
I know that I will…
And for just a little while I’ll be a kid again, up on the couch hoping that someone else besides me and Bill Shatner sees the creature on the wing!
