Quotes

Narrator: [opening narration for "The After Hours"] How fortunate for Marsha Cole to squeeze into the mall even though it's closing. Someone should remind her though: Doors that keep others out, can also seal you in... the Twilight Zone.

Creepy mannequins/Lost and Found should have stayed lost/a non starter

Series 2, episode 4 of THE NEW TWILIGHT zone features the short segment THE AFTER HOURS, which is a relatively enjoyable tale with an appropriately spooky atmosphere for the series. In it, a young girl - for some inexplicable reason - decides to visit a shopping mall on her own late at night. While there she's menaced by sinister figures, and soon finds herself undergoing an even more sinister transformation.

The filming style is perfunctory at best but there's a genuinely spooky atmosphere which makes this tale work, and even if the twist is obvious it's still an entertaining one.

The second segment LOST AND FOUND is a silly, jokey, and very brief story featuring a college student who's going out of her mind. Stuff in her apartment keeps going missing, but she's in for a surprise when she discovers that a couple of time travellers hiding in her closet are the ones responsible.

Yes, you have time travel as a basis for your story, and you decide to base it on a silly story like this. Hardly the basis for the stuff of greatness then, and the entirely poorly acting on display from the cast

  • alongside the poor production values - helps to sink this one


entirely.

The third and final segment, THE WORLD NEXT DOOR, is the least of three, a simple sci-fi story that has a neat idea but no real resolution or indeed plotting to propel the storyline. It involves a typically kooky character (played by George Wendt) who's an eccentric inventor, browbeaten by his wife and generally put upon by society. Then he discovers a hidden doorway to another world, bringing his dreams true. Jeffrey Tambor plays in support. This segment has the best cast of three but probably the weakest story.
