Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983) Review:

Twilight Zone: The Movie is directly inspired from the TV series of the same name, except that each of the short, instead of being made by Rod Serling, was here made by famous horror/sci-fi directors of the time.

The first short, by John Landis (An American Werewolf in London), bring on the interesting concept of a racist taken up to a dimension where he is the victim of racism. An interesting one.

The second short is by Steven Spielberg himself (Jaw, Jurassic Park), is not horror at all, but a beautiful tale of hope and joy in the typical Spielberg style (A.IE-T, etc…).

The third short is by Joe Dante (Gremlins, Piranha) is by far the most fucked up, the story of a boy who can materialize all of his wishes. Like in Alice in Wonderland, this colorful tale of the bizarre brings some very creepy characters to life.

The last one by George Miller (Mad Max 1 and 2), is by far the best. It relates the stressful story of a man afraid of flying who gets to see a strange monster lurking around the plane. A truly creepy one!

Overall, the stories are gradually getting better and better for a film that keeps surprising and delivers a really creepy last chapter.
