Four directors collaborated to remake four episodes of the popular television series 'The Twilight Zone' for this movie. The episodes are updated slightly and in color (the television show was in black-and-white), but very true to the originals, where eerie and disturbing situations gradually spin out of control.

John Landis' segment "Time Out" was originally entitled "The Bigot", a story he claimed would retain political and social commentary of the best Twilight Zone episodes from the original series. See more »
In Segment #4, Mr. Valentine sits in seat 4A, but later on he is sitting directly over the wing. Seat 4A would not be over the wing on any modern commercial aircraft. See more »

When I first watched this film at the age of seven, I must have been freaked out for weeks. Never had a movie had that kind of effect on my psyche, especially "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet." While some will label this as a bad film due to the fact it didn't faithfully reproduce the original stories very well. I say 'Who Cares!' Sometimes, fear and entertainment is all that one needs in regard to a cool movie such as this one. While it is certainly not a film that will rank highly in the greatest films of all time category, at least it proved this concept in story telling is pertinent today, even in today's cynical culture.
