This movie consists of several episodes that were never made but written by the shows creator. Unfortunately this is not up to the quality of the Twilight Zone movie which is excellent, but this is still a decent Twilight Zone addition and recommended viewing.
"This show, hosted by the Serling scripted "the Man" star James Earl Jones, consists of two lost episodes of the Twilight Zone--scripts that were either started by Rod Serling (and finished by Richard Matheson, a TZ collaborator of his from the original series) or written by the master himself.
The first episode is pretty much forgettable.
It is the second story, concerning a Civil War surgeon who seeks a way of prolonging the lives of his patients, that should provide some amusement for Serling fans. It was indeed eerie(or should I say "twilight zone" like?) to recognize the famous writer's voice in the dialogue(especially Palance's). The tale is a decent variation on Frankenstein and like the best of Serling's work, has some biting commentary on human nature. Though I wouldn't go so far as to say this is a "classic," and the ending was predictable, it has more depth than alot of similar efforts in genre tv airing today.
I just wish they would have filmed it in harsh black and white--now that would have been a blast from the past!"
