Though its famous today for the death of Vic Morrow and two child actors in an on-set accident (which can be seen in I think the second FACES OF DEATH OF DEATH), this anthology flick has stories that range from bad to brilliant. Produced by Steven Spielberg and John Landis, this film remakes three stories from the original series and has one original tale. The best of the bunch is the George Miller remake of the classic gremlin episode that featured William Shatner going nuts on a flight. This one has John Lithgow doing the freak-out at 30,000 feet, easily besting Shatner. If it involved a gremlin with three tits and the fate of the universe I would give it to Shatner, but Lithgow knows crazy.
SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
