Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Twilight Zone: The Movie has a horrible stigma hanging over it due to the unfortunate helicopter accident in the Vic Morrow segment, which is undoubtedly a tragedy, but it’s also a shame that the movie has that taint because it’s pretty damn solid. I would have loved to have seen a series of Steven Spielberg produced Twilight Zone movies, but that was never meant to be.
Today we’re looking at Joe Dante’s segment, which is kind of Dante at his most Tarantino. He let’s all his fetishes fly in his segment and it comes off as more of a living cartoon in its 20-ish minutes than the whole Looney Tunes movie did.
Maybe when these Hobbit reports are finally finished and I get caught up I’ll venture back to my Light and Shadow column, where I go episode by episode of the Twilight Zone eps, but I’ve noticed there are other sites that are now doing that and stuck with it longer than I did, so maybe not. We’ll see how I feel.
In the meantime where’s Dante, a crazy puppet and one Mr. Rob Bottin acting as puppeteer! Thanks once again to the Practical Effects Group for the images. Enjoy the pics and click to (slightly) enlargen!
If you have a behind the scenes shot you’d like to submit to this column, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tomorrow’s pic is really bad!
