Tonight's Scary Show -- Twilight Zone: 'To Serve Man'

It's Halloween. 

All this week, the Dorchester Times has aired the scariest episodes of the classic TV show, "The Twilight Zone."  Tonight we share the scariest.

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 "To Serve Man."  

The Kanamits, 9 foot tall aliens, arrive on Earth with one lofty goal: To serve mankind.

The story is based on the 1950 short story written by Damon Knight. The title is a play on the verb serve.  (Watch the show and you'll get it.)  The episode, along with the line, "It's a cookbook!," have become elements in pop culture.

Enjoy tonight's episode.  But be sure to leave an extra light on -- after all, it's Halloween.
