Planet of the Apes
"re-imagined" as an episode of The Twilight Zone.
Rod Serling, creator of The Twilight Zone, also co-wrote the screenplay for Planet of the Apes. Which is why the movie plays like a two-hour episode of the show, complete with social commentary and shock ending.
Thanks to digital video editing, I was able to re-edit the movie as an episode of the show. Opening narration comes from the episode "Elegy." Closing narration comes from "The Shelter."
"What great fun! Serling's voice and outlook come through
splendidly and the story genuinely plays like a TWILIGHT ZONE episode. The
style of acting, shot composition, music, everything fits the style of the
ZONE, and it's even got a timely message. There were always only 156
episodes of THE TWILIGHT ZONE... now you can say there are 157."
