Fresh: Miller leaves] no doubt that he was the finest stylist to emerge in the early 80s, with a sense of narrative rhythm linked to visual development that is wholly original and ravishing.

It was pretty nice, there were some parts that felt way too corny to me but there were some good moments too..

Four great solid stories that make me want to see more old episodes.

An anthology of big-screen Twilight Zone tales. Dan Aykroyd and Albert Brooks get us in the mood with a late night car drive, reminiscing about the old TV show. Vic Morrow plays a racist who is thrust into the shoes of persecuted blacks, jews and vietnamese, for a eye-opening tale. Too bad about the real life tragedy which befell this shoot. Scatman Crothers plays a game of kick the can with some old folks home residents for some juvenile fun. This segment dragged things down a bit, but there's a great conclusion. Kathleen Quinlan plays a visiting teacher to a town cowering in fear over a small boy with god-like powers. The scenes at the boy's home are genuinely creepy. It has a very touching resolution. Finally, John Lithgow plays a passenger on a stormy airplane ride, who sights a creature attempting to sabotage the plane's engine out the window. It's great freaky paranoid tension which brings the movie to a screaming finale. Overall, the whole series of tales is a fun ride.
