For genre fans "The Twilight Zone" was always one of the best offerings television had to offer in terms of groundbreaking storytelling and genuine thrills and chills. The classic series has seen several revivals throughout the years, a feature film and another possible upcoming big-screen treatment along with another possible small screen incarnation. While most herald the original Rod Serling-hosted version, I've always been partial to the one that I grew up with, the classic 1980's series (sacrilege, I know!). That's why it is exciting news that the series that redefined the fantasy/anthology genre for a new generation, "The New Twilight Zone: The Complete Collection", will be hitting UK shelves on 13-disc DVD boxset April 29th 2013 through Shock Entertainment.
Featuring a spectacular hoard of talent previously unheard of in a single television series, including the likes of Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, Stephen King, George R.R. Martin, Joe Dante, Wes Craven and William Friedkin to name a few, 'The New Twilight Zone" wowed audiences at a time when television was an arid wasteland of cheesy, identikit soap operas and repetitious, uninspired action series, quickly establishing itself as an unmissable series! Even by today’s standards, the list of creative talent involved is simply astonishing.
Broadcast from 1985 to 1989, this series not only captured the spirit and continued the legacy of the original, but it also took television drama to a whole new level, particularly with unforgettable episodes such as the shocking William Friedkin-directed “Nightcrawlers”, Wes Craven’s tear-jerker “Her Pilgrim Soul” and Joe Dante’s terrifying “The Shadow Man”.
