Twilight Zone:The Movie

It`s hard to imagine 25 years have passed since the release of this film and I`m happy to report time has been kind to it. I remember finding the opening episode a littel too preachy and the second far too sappy but they stand up as solid pieces. Of course only the first segment is original with the other three being recreations. While using Bill Mumy in a cameo and having Burgess Meredith narrate were nice touches I thought they could have used more Zone veterans especially in the KICK THE CAN segment. Known mostly for the horrid accident that killed Vic Morrow and two others it is also notable as being the first film role for Nancy Cartwright better known to most as the voice of Bart Simpson and look for Rod Serling`s wife Carol as a stewardess in NIGHTMARE AT 20,000 FEET which is a Richard Mattheson classic.
