Narrator: [opening narration for "The Shadow Man"] When you're thirteen years old, you're supposed to be beyond those childhood fears of things that go bump in the night. Supposed to be. But for Danny Hayes, those fears are about to rear up before him, from the shadows... of the Twilight Zone.

A Couple Decent Ones and a Clunker
20 April 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sometimes overconfidence can get us into big trouble. A nerdy thirteen year old is visited by a "Shadow Man" who lives under his bed. It becomes his protector and his previously mundane life takes on new proportions. Unfortunately, he plays his cards too aggressively. Then we have "The Uncle Devil Show" where a guy on a videotape induces a child to do outlandish things. He is a bad influence and the clueless parents just ignore what is going on. "Opening Day" is the opening day of duck season and it's about the eternal triangle. A man, played by Jeffrey Jones, is going hunting with the man who is having an affair with his wife. The idea is to kill the husband during the trip. The deed is done, but that's only the start. During the act, the perpetrator loses his shotgun but the police bring it back to him. When he goes to meet the woman, time has changed. He is now a married man with a couple kids. Of course, in The Twilight Zone, no one gets away with murder.
