Only one thing about Twilight Zone: The Movie still haunts us today, and it wasn't intentional.

Where does it land? A fifth dimension beyond that known to most films. The middle ground between wowing & worthless, between so great & so what, and it lies between the pits of recklessly fatal hubris and the very summit of spirited genre filmmaking.

A bland and lazy rehash of the best episodes of the series...

If the first half completely lost us, the second effortlessly added a few more sleepless nights to our tally.

TV show is much better; some mature themes, violence.

Plays much like a traditional vaudeville card, what with its tantalizing teaser opening followed by three sketches of increasing quality, all building up to a socko headline act.

A frightfully lopsided omnibus that begins with two wretched episodes by John Landis and Steven Spielberg and finishes with an engrossing pair by Joe Dante and George Miller.

...doesn't quite capture the magic of the old television series, but it makes a good stab at trying.

Like all anthology films, this one has its high and low points, and not where you'd expect.

The others have a comic strip zeal which makes them intensely watchable, but ultimately it's left to Mad Max wizard Miller to steal the show.

The surprising thing is, the two superstar directors are thoroughly routed by two less-known directors whose previous credits have been horror and action pictures.

Twilight Zone takes us back to Rod Serling's television dimension where things are not what they seem and fate is full of devious twists and turns.

Four big-name directors were each to helm a segment, but only Dante's cheerfully manic It's a Good Life and Miller's claustrophobic Nightmare at 20,000 Feet really pass muster.

Flawed and uneven, though George Miller's finale is a hoot.

Uneven adaptation of classic TV series. Some stories work, others don't, but Scatman Crothers steals his vignette.

Even with big name additions and direction and huge budgets, this project was destined for mediocrity.
