Dennis Weaver crosses lanes with a truck-wielding maniac in Steven Spielberg’s first feature, the ABC Movie-of-the-Week, DUEL (1971).
Lloyd Bridges is hounded by a recurring dream that makes his life a nightmare in The Deadly Dream (1971).
Saturdays are a lost art. If you ever padded down in your footie pajamas to the family television to settle in for a full morning of kid’s programming, then this episode is for you. We talk about Groovie Goolies, the classic Filmation animated show, featuring friendly versions of Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolfman, and a coterie of other creepers. So, pass the pop-tarts, it’s time for the Goolies get together….
We visit with Mark Dawidziak to discuss his best-selling book, EVERYTHING I NEED TO KNOW I LEARNED IN THE TWILIGHT ZONE. It’s an absorbing look at life principles from the Fifth Dimension, stirring reminders found in Rod Serling’s timeless fantasy series.
Before The Shawshank Redemption and The Mist, Frank Darabont directed a little film called Buried Alive (1990), starring Tim Matheson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, William Atherton, and Hoyt Axton, the story of a man who thought he had everything….until he woke up in a coffin.
Listen to the podcast:
The President’s Plane Is Missing (1973), starring Buddy Ebsen and Rip Torn is a standout in a decade littered with the wreckage of lesser airplane dramas. Based on a novel by Robert J. Serling (brother of Rod Serling).
It’s a film Rod Serling regretted writing: the criminally unknown TV Movie from 1966, The Doomsday Flight, starring Jack Lord and Edmond O’Brien.
The chase is afoot with 1973’s SHE CRIED MURDER, starring Lynda Day George, fresh off of Mission Impossible, and Telly Savalas, right before KOJAK hit. Who loves ya, baby? TV TERROR loves ya.
We pause to remember Mary Tyler Moore, who passed away this week, and celebrate her work in the superb crime/horror series, Boris Karloff’s THRILLER.
