Here are the last two (only recently discovered) of the treasured "Twilight Zone" tales from that articulate and spellbinding storyteller - Rod Serling.
"The Theatre," the first episode in this final anthology, features an average unmarried woman (Amy Irving - "The Competition," "Crossing Delancey"). One night she goes to the cinema alone to relax. When the lights go down and the movie begins she sees a terrifying vision. There up on the screen she views herself, larger than life, in a nightmarish yet exact re-enactment of her day.
Confiding in her boyfriend (Gary Cole - "Fatal Vision," "Son of the Morning Star"), the woman is still compulsively driven to return to the cinema again and again until she witnesses the climax of the movie. Eventually her boyfriend is drawn into a dimension of the "Twilight Zone."
"Where The Dead Are," the second episode of the lost classics, is a period piece set in the United States in the aftermath of the Civil War and centres around a brilliant young surgeon (Patrick Bergin - "Sleeping With The Enemy," "Robin Hood") who is determined to do battle with death.
When he performs an appendectomy on an aged drunk who dies shortly after the surgery, Dr. Ramsey notices an anomaly upon examination of the corpse. The man has a scar on his head that indicates an untreated skull fracture that should have meant certain death. The physician's curiosity is hopelessly piqued...he must find out why this man lived beyond his time.
Dr. Ramsey's inquiries eventually lead him to a village on the coast from Boston on Shadow Island. In this forsaken place he meets with Jeremy Wheaton (Jack Palance - "City Slickers," "Young Guns"), a man who was once a pharmacist experimenting in the regeneration of cells. It is here that the special, mysterious and imaginative region known as the "Twilight Zone" truly unfolds.
