As we close out Season 3 of TV TERROR PODCAST, we speak with Jason V. Brock, author, artist, and director of the definitive documentary about Charles Beaumont. Beaumont is a towering but tragic figure, who aided Rod Serling in pioneering a new and ascendant medium called television.
DARK NIGHT OF THE SCARECROW ranks as a high watermark for the horror genre, not just in television, but in any medium. Directed by Frank DeFelitta (Audrey Rose, The Entity) from the script by J.D. Feigelson and starring Larry Drake and Charles Durning, it’s a terrifying exercise in otherworldly justice.
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.
