Storyline

This tv movie features two stories by Rod Serling, who also wrote the stories of the original The 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 ...

Quotes

[closing narration for "Where the Dead Are"]
Host: Quotation from the Bible, the Book of Ecclesiastes: "To everything, there is a season and a time for every purpose under Heaven. A time to be born, and a time to die." To which Dr. Ramsey might add, "And death will come, despite the misguided efforts of man to delay or prevent it, even in the Twilight Zone."

The first episode was a classic
16 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

The first episode was a Twilight Zone classic.

It features a young woman with commitment issues who keeps putting off her boyfriend/fiancé's marriage proposals. She thinks she has all the time in the world, but doesn't know what lies waiting for her at the local movie theater where "His Girl Friday" is playing. During the movie she suddenly sees an on-screen video of her earlier conversation with her boyfriend, which no one else seems to see. Thinking it's a prank, she confronts him and he acts dumbfounded, not knowing what she's talking about. As the movie unfolds, she makes repeated trips to the theater, each time seeing more video of her past, and future. Her boyfriend thinks she is having a breakdown and recommends therapy and to "not go back there again", but by this time she's obsessed and can't get away from it. In the end she sees herself get hit by a bus and fulfills her own death prophesy.

In the last scene her boyfriend finally watches the movie and sees the sequence of videos himself. The moral of the story is to live life to the fullest and don't take time for granted, because we don't know the future.... or, in rare cases, we may see it in our minds if it's projected from "The Twilight Zone".

James Earl Jones of "One Book" commercial fame does a great job as "Rod Serling" doing the narrative at the end. To me it's a classic Twilight Zone episode that could have come right out of the 1960 series.
