The Twilight Zone

The Twilight Zone
The Twilight Zone is a classic anthology of sci-fi, suspense and goosebump-inducing tales that explore "a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man." Filled with invention and irony, the stories are tightly-constructed, ingenious flights of imagination with often cautionary themes and a terrific twist at the end. Host and prolific writer Rod Serling penned most of the episodes himself.
