For tonight’s trip into the world of televised horror, we have an episode from a 1986 attempt to revive The Twilight Zone.
This episode is a remake of one of my favorite episodes of the original series, Shadow Play. That’s the one where the guy is on death row but he says he’s not worried about being executed because he knows he’s just having a reoccuring nightmare. Of course, this kind of freaks out some of the people around him because, if he’s just having a dream, what happens to them when the dream ends?
While the remake is nowhere near as good as the original, it’s still fairly well done. Plus, it’s on YouTube and the original isn’t.
This episode was directed by Paul Lynch, the Canadian director who also directed the original Prom Night.
