Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database

Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983) Four horror/science-fiction segments directed by four of Hollywood's famous directors based on TV's most popular anthology series, bookened by a funny and scary prologue and epilogue. In the first story (a vague remake of the Twilight Zone episode "A Quality of Mercy"), a loud-mouthed bigoted businessman with an intense hatred for Jews, blacks, and Asians, gets the tables turned on him when he walks out a bar and is inexplicably transported back in time to being pursued by Nazis in 1940's France, then as an African-American at a KKK rally in the 1950s Deep South, and as a Vietnamese in 1960s Vietnam. In the second story (a remake of 'Kick the Can'), an old man arrives at a retirement home and makes the wishes of the residents come true when he magically transforms them into youthful incarnations of their days gone by. In the third story (a remake of 'It's a Good Life'), a young woman on the road gives a ride to a mysterious 10-year-old boy to his house and ends up trapped with other people in an alternate reality created by the boy's imagination. The fourth story (a remake of 'Nightmare at 20,000 Feet) features a passenger on an airline whom sees, but cannot convince anyone, a mysterious creature on the outside wing of the airplane trying to sabotage the aircraft.

Movie Tagline:
You're travelling through another dimension. A dimension, not only of sight and sound, but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. Next stop, the Twilight Zone!

Movie Quote(s):
  • Anthony: Th-th-th-that's all, Ethel!
  • Car Passenger: Hey... you wanna see something really scary?
  • Ambulance Driver: So, you had a pretty big scare up there, huh? John Valentine: Oh yeah! Ambulance Driver: You wanna see something really scary?
  • Bill Connor: Arab? What's that? Just a nigger wrapped up in a sheet.
  • Mrs. Dempsey: Mrs. Cox would never allow us. It's against the rules. Mr. Bloom: Rules? Did rules ever stop a child from playing?
Movie Trivia:
  • On July 23, 1982, around 2:30 am, actor Vic Morrow, and two child actors, Renee Chen of 6 years, and My-ca Dinh Le of 7 years, were killed in an accident on the set. While filming a Vietnam battle sequence (a hovering helicopter chasing and shooting at Morrow, who was carrying two Vietnamese children out of a deserted village and across a small lake), an SFX explosion sent the helicopter crashing down on top of them, killing all three instantly. It is illegal for children to work at that hour; Renee Chen and My-ca Dinh Le were not officially part of the cast, and their parents were paid in cash. Director John Landis, associate producer George Folsey Jr., production manager Dan Allingham, special effects coordinator Paul Stewart and pilot Dorcey Wingo were charged of involuntary manslaughter. The trial began on September 03, 1986 and the verdict was given on May 29, 1987. Landis and the four crew members were found not guilty.
  • Mention is made of Lieutenant Neidermeyer getting "fragged" by his own troops. This was the fate given to Neidermeyer in the ending of Animal House (1978), also directed by John Landis.
  • Cameo: [Carol Serling] as the woman who asks "Is there something wrong" when the flight attendants knock on the airplane restroom door, holding a copy of the Twilight Zone magazine in her arms. She was the wife of "The Twilight Zone" (1959) creator Rod Serling.
  • The name of Kathleen Quinlan's character is Helen Foley. This was not the name of a character in the original "It's a Good Life" episode, but the name of a character from "The Twilight Zone" (1959) {Nightmare as a Child (#1.29)}. Helen Foley was the name of one of Rod Serling's favorite teachers as a child.
  • In the diner, when Kathleen Quinlan is asked where she is from and where she is going, she answers with two town names that were used in old "Twilight Zone" episodes: "Homewood," from "The Twilight Zone: Walking Distance (#1.5)" (1959), and "Willoughby," from "The Twilight Zone: A Stop at Willoughby (#1.30)" (1960). The cook refers to "Cliffordville," from "The Twilight Zone: Of Late I Think of Cliffordville (#4.14)" (1963).
