Storyline

This tv movie features two stories by Rod Serling, who also wrote the stories of the original Twilight Zone (1959) series. "The Theater": A young girl goes to the cinema to see His Girl Friday (1940) with Cary Grant. Suddenly she sees scenes from her own life instead of the comedy. The scenes actually took place earlier that day. She is very confused because the other people didn't see those scenes. As she goes to see the movie again, scenes from her future appear on the screen. And that future is very frightening... "Where the Dead Are": Dr. Benjamin Ramsey is professor at the university in Boston in 1868. In front of his students he performes an appendix operation. As the patient O'Neil dies after the operation, Dr. Ramsey discovers that O'Neil suffered from a serious scull fracture twelve years ago. Since no one could have survived such an injury, he travels to the mysterious island where O'Neil came from. There he visits Dr. Jeremy Wheaton who earlier had experimented with tissue ...

This show sent parcel post from the Twilight Zone
16 January 2001 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

This show, hosted by the Serling scripted "the Man" star James Earl Jones, consists of two lost episodes of the Twilight Zone--scripts that were either started by Rod Serling (and finished by Richard Matheson, a TZ collaborator of his from the original series) or written by the master himself.

The first episode is pretty much forgettable.

It is the second story, concerning a Civil War surgeon who seeks a way of prolonging the lives of his patients, that should provide some amusement for Serling fans. It was indeed eerie(or should I say "twilight zone" like?) to recognize the famous writer's voice in the dialogue(especially Palance's). The tale is a decent variation on Frankenstein and like the best of Serling's work, has some biting commentary on human nature. Though I wouldn't go so far as to say this is a "classic," and the ending was predictable, it has more depth than alot of similar efforts in genre tv airing today.

I just wish they would have filmed it in harsh black and white--now that would have been a blast from the past!
