Tonight's Scary Show -- Twilight Zone: 'Nightmare At 20,000 Feet'
From now until Halloween, the Dorchester Times is airing the three scariest episodes of the classic TV show, "The Twilight Zone."
We've selected these three episodes of "The Twilight Zone" because some of us Times staff members actually remember when CBS aired this imaginative series.
These 30-minute programs are wildly creative, spine-tingling tense and yet family friendly.
Imagination and solid story lines carry these shows, whose quality far surpass any of the "scary shows" produced today.
Tonight's episode is called "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" -- perhaps the most recognized in the series.
William Shatner plays Bob Wilson, a man recently discharged from a sanitarium after having a nervous breakdown on a passenger plane. Convinced he's cured, he boards a flight home with his wife. But then he sees it, a maniacal creature tampering with the wing of the jet, to bring it down. Is it for real? Is he relapsing into insanity? It's that tension that makes this such a wonderful watch.
Enjoy tonight's episode. But be sure to leave on an extra light. And Happy Halloween.
