Geekery: The Nightmare at 20,000 Feet
Sci-fi author Richard Matheson died yesterday. I wasn’t really aware that I was a fan, until I read his obit here and realized I’ve read (and watched) many of his stuff like: I Am Legend, What Dreams May Come and most memorably, this episode of Twilight Zone. Up to now, every time I look out the window in a plane (and if I get a window seat, I always choose one near the wing), part of me expects to see a creature out there. Shiverrr!
There are other Twilight Zone eps that are better than this one, but this one sticks to my brain.
(And yes, I fully realize how cheesy this is — the creature is wearing a bear (gorilla?) suit, for godsakes! And yet…)
