Working in the lab at his university, student Devon Taylor records what he believes is a radio signal from outer space. His professor dismisses it, but when he takes the recording home, his younger sister Joyce listens to it for hours on end in a state of euphoria. The recording seems to have the same effect on all of her friends. When a group of them are found listening to what they say is music, it's apparent that they have also begun to mutate. As far as the government and the military are concerned, this constitutes an alien attack on the Earth. Doctors, including Devon and Joyce's father, work tirelessly to find a cure. It's Devon, however. who finally understands just what this "music" is meant to accomplish. Written by garykmcd

One of my favorite show's!
23 December 2007 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

The Outer Limits is an awesome show for those who like science fiction, and mysteries! I love this show because, each story is not only different, but, so is the cast on each episode! I have seen Margot Kidder (Superman: The Movie, etc.) on the show and she was awesome! But, she is not in this wonderful episode. My favorite actress in the whole world, #1 above all the rest, Kirsten Dunst!! A younger Kirsten Dunst! (Before she started spinning her gorgeous webbing in Spider-Man in the flawless, perfect, Spider-Man franchise along with the ever so phenomenal man behind the mask, Tobey Maguire.) She was phenomenal in this episode! It is a little freaky at times, but, she kept me smiling throughout. The show overall is great! Along with House M.D. starring Golden Globe Nominee, Hugh Laurie, and Smallville, starring Christopher Reeve's TRUE successor (not Brandon Routh) but, the amazing, Tom Welling! The Outer Limits is great! A must for all!
