Two eras of Rod Serling's creepiest creation are coming together for the first time.
Out Nov. 11, The Twilight Zone: The 5th Dimension limited-edition 41-DVD box set ($349.98) collects the complete original 1959-64 Twilight Zone series as well as the 1985-89 show, plus has special extras only available previously on Blu-ray and a new documentary with never-before-seen interview material.
For those who've been hiding in their closest ever since being terrified by the first episode "Where Is Everybody?" the original anthology show became a timeless classic over the years for its melding of sci-fi, horror and thriller elements, Serling's cool narrative appearances and a host of peculiar characters, from the discomforting Talky Tina doll to William Shatner's paranoid, gremlin-watching plane passenger.
The 1980s version, while not as popular as the old show, offered episodes directed by a number of notable filmmakers including Wes Craven, William Friedkin, Joe Dante, Atom Egoyan and Robert Downey Sr., the father of the Iron Man actor.
The set is a numbered edition of 7,500, comes with an 80-page episode guide and is packed with special features including the American Masters episode Rod Serling: Submitted for Your Approval, various Serling interviews and appearances, cast interviews, sponsor billboards and audio commentaries.
