Tonight's Scary Show -- Twilight Zone: 'It's A Good Life'
It's Halloween week.
All this week, the Dorchester Times is airing the scariest episodes of the classic TV show, "The Twilight Zone."
We've selected these episodes of "The Twilight Zone" because we've found these 30-minute programs to be wildly creative and powerful. Imagination and solid story lines carry these shows, whose quality far surpass any of the "scary shows" produced today.
Tonight's episode is called "It's a Good Life."
It is based on the 1953 short story "It's a Good Life" by Jerome Bixby and is considered by many, such as Time Magazine and TV Guide, to be one of the best episodes of the series. It originally aired on November 3, 1961.
On an isolated family farm, a young boy with vast mental powers, but lacking emotional development, holds his terrified family in thrall to his every juvenile wish. No one ever thought the world would end this way.
Enjoy tonight's scary show -- but be sure to leave the lights on for this one.
