Tonight's Scary Show -- Twilight Zone: 'Nightmare At 20,000 Feet'
All this week, the Dorchester Times will air the scariest episodes of the classic TV show
"The Twilight Zone."
We've selected these episodes of "The Twilight Zone" because we find that these 30-minute programs are wildly creative, spine-tingling tense and yet family friendly. The imagination and quality of these old TV shows far surpass any of the "scary shows" produced today, in our humble opinion.
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.
