TV Horror Anthology - The Twilight Zone (1985)

The Twilight Zone
1985-7 CBS, 1988-9 Syndication
65 Episodes

Some scary stories have a timeless quality, some are a product of their times, and some depend more on the age of the viewer.  On reviewing, I'm sad to say the 1985 revival of the Twilight Zone likely falls in the last category.  Episodes like "Shadow Man", "A Little Peace and Quiet", and "Nightcrawlers" gave kids PTSD in the 80s, but don't have the same impact today.

The quality level doesn't dip too badly through the seasons, but the creepiness does subside rather quickly.
