80’s Flix -Twilight Zone The Movie

Halloween is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate it than with an 80’s Horror movie that really screwed my head up as a kid.Flashback to around 1985.I was 8 then and sitting in front of my T.V. with a giant bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch totally into this movie they were giving on HBO called Twilight Zone.Now I knew Twilight Zone…the black and white Twilight Zone…the one with all the warped  and  twisted logic defying short stories that would come on  the local channels late at night when everyone had gone to bed…but this version was  different .This Twilight Zone was in color and almost 2 hours long according to the TV guide and I wasn’t about to miss it for the world.I remember sitting in the dark on my living room floor carefully shoveling spoonfuls of cereal into my mouth, never once looking down at the bowl as I was too busy watching the movie while simultaneously keeping an eye on my mom who was a couple rooms away in the kitchen,just to reassure myself that I wasn’t alone.While movies like this totally screwed with my head growing up, they also helped expand my imagination and even influenced me to want to write my very own Horror movie script.Below are a few of the scenes from the film that stuck with me.That Lithgow scene was classic and the story with the kid who made his big sisters mouth disappear was awesomely disturbing!

    • Everytime my family and I took a flight somewhere I would always find myself looking outside my window to see If that little creature would appear on the wings of the plane LOL 🙂

  1. That gremlin on the airplane wing still creeps me out to this day! After the first time I watched this, I would always think that friggin’ gremlin was outside of my bedroom window. It’s been a while since I last saw it, so I’ll see if it’s streaming on Netflix as well.
