Default Super Comp - All 4 volumes of The Twilight Zone DVD/Blu-Ray - 05/12/2011 - FINISHED

"There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone. And you can win it this Christmas! "

Welcome to the Cult Labs Twilight Zone Super Comp, where we're giving away each of the new boxsets of this incredible cult show. Yes, Volume 1, 2, 3 and 4 (5 is due out next year).

That's right, all of these could be yours...









Here's some info on the releases...

“THE BEST THAT HAS EVER BEEN ACCOMPLISHED IN HALF-HOUR FILMED TELEVISION.” – VARIETY.


Get ready to enter a fifth dimension of high-definition video entertainment, one that lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge… a dimension of imagination that is undoubtedly going to be the most highly anticipated home entertainment release of the year!

One of the most iconic and celebrated TV shows of all time, The Twilight Zone is coming to DVD and, for the first time ever in the UK, to Blu-ray. Over the course of 2011, Shock Entertainment and FremantleMedia Enterprises will be releasing all five complete seasons of the series (originally broadcast between 1959 and 1964) plus the complete 1980s revival series.

Over the years, The Twilight Zone has been acknowledged as an influence by countless writers and filmmakers, including Steven Spielberg (“I was a complete obsessive-compulsive Twilight Zone follower.”), J.J. Abrams (“The Twilight Zone at its best is better than anything else I've ever seen on television.”), Joe Dante, John Landis, Wes Craven, George Miller, Clive Barker, Steven King and Michael J. Straczynski.

The year of The Twilight Zone begins on 2nd May with the release of u, featuring all 36 original episodes and a spectacular line up of additional features.

For all releases, every effort has been made to maintain the highest standards of quality in bringing this classic series to DVD and Blu-ray.

The DVD has been digitally remastered and comes packed with extras including audio commentaries, vintage recollections from cast members, Rod Serling’s Network Pitch and original unaired pilots.

Presented for the first time in the UK, the Blu-ray edition is in pristine high-definition, digitally remastered from new 1080p film transfers using the original camera negatives and magnetic soundtracks. As well as all the features on the DVDeditions, the Blu-ray editions will also include a host of extras, available for the first time in the UK. Season 1 alone includes an unofficial pilot written by Rod Serling, 19 new audio commentaries, 18 radio dramas, 34 isolated music scores, and much more.

The Twilight Zone: Season Two will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on 23rd May, Season Three on 27th June, Season Four on 8th August and Season Five early 2012.


Created by the legendary Rod Serling, the multi-Emmy award-winning The Twilight Zone is a true landmark show in television history. It made an indelible mark on popular culture and remains, to this day, one of the most innovative and influential series of all time. The original series ran for 156 episodes between 1959 and 1964, spawning a revival series (1985-1989), a Steven Spielberg-produced feature film (1983), a TV movie (1994) and a final TV series (2002-2003). Sophisticated and entertaining, much of the show’s success was due to the timeless nature and universal appeal of its stories. Its writers included leading sci-fi and fantasy genre writers Richard Matheson, Ray Bradbury, Charles Beaumont and Serling, himself.

The series also helped launch the careers of many soon-to-be famous stars, including Charles Bronson, James Coburn, Robert Duvall, Peter Falk, Dennis Hopper, Ron Howard, Lee Marvin, Vera Miles, Elizabeth Montgomery, Agnes Moorehead, Leonard Nimoy, Donald Pleasence, Robert Redford, William Shatner and Natalie Trundy, as well as providing a platform for established acting greats such as Buster Keaton, Burgess Meredith and Mickey Rooney.

An essential viewing experience for fans of sci-fi, fantasy and groundbreaking TV drama, these newly remastered editions of The Twilight Zone present Rod Serling’s television masterpiece as never seen before.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But how do you win this totally awesome prize?

Well....

In keeping with the Christmas theme all you have to do is come up with an object that would make a great Twilight Zone episode - something given to someone on Christmas. HOWEVER, this is no normal object, there's something more to it (perhaps even sinister?).

Simply come up with an ordinary object that has a special aility which would make a brilliant Twilight Zone episode. For instance, what about a cursed Christmas tree who's supernatural evil kills a family in mysterious circumstances. With each death, appears a new tree ornament? Or something like that - they dont have to be Xmas specific.

Pictures are always more than welcome!

Enter as many times as you like!

The three greatest entries will be picked in two weeks time (the 19th) and each winner will get themselves alll 4 boxsets (either on DVD or Blu-Ray)

Anyone and everyone can enter! Just post your entry below.

GOOD LUCK!

Kyle

Meet Peter David Smith of Dayton Falls, Nevada.

Every December 1st his parents give him an Advent Calendar. Usually behind each shuttered cardboard window there is nothing more than a small piece of crafted Christmas candy. This year will be different.

For this year Peter David Smith is about to discover not all windows should be opened, and not all Advent Calendar windows lead to smiles and candy.

Sometimes they can lead into... The Twilight Zone!

As soon as Peter opens the window for December 1st there is a whoosh of wind, and he is pulled into the calendar, finding himself drawn into a Christmas scene from mid-50s America. There is a murdered body on the floor, police are snapping pics. A serial killer is at large. "The Christmas Killer". He leaves the victim with a bow wrapped round their neck..

Suddenly Peter is back in the present.

Over the course of the next 3 weeks Peter is transported to other Christmas scenes from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. Each time there is a victim, each time it is the work of "The Christmas Killer".

Peter begins to realise that there is a reason for this "gift" - he has to find the killer before he strikes again, now, here in the "present", on December 24th.

His stays in the past last longer, and he begins to piece the clues together, until eventually he discovers who the killer is...

On December 24th, when Peter opens the final window on his Advent Calendar, he knows he will face "The Christmas Killer", the man who gave him the calendar in the first place, his own father.

Peter David Smith, of Dayton Falls, Nevada. Given the gift to save lives. But at a sacrifice. A sacrifice he chose to make, for no one can resist the allure of an Advent Calendar window. Not even when it leads into... The Twilight Zone.

Twilight Zone Christmas Special:

The Kiss of Death

Christmas in 2011 is just like any other Christmas for most people but not for Ant, not this year.

Ant always finds an excuse to kiss the girls all year round but he gets most of them at Christmas time, with the inevitable unvealing of his Mystery Mistletoe. Once he starts waving his magical berries around, the ladies (and men) just cannot resist.

After a having a bad year with nothing much going right for him, from Car trouble to Flat trouble and everything in between, Ant had some very dark thoughts on his mind. He gradually got more and more bitter toward the world around him. This negative mindset had somehow triggered an evil force in his leaf and two berries and whoever kissed him this Christmas would die a slow, painful death.

After losing the one he loved the most, his gorgeous partner Kelly, Ant was sent plunging even deeper into his resentful thoughts.
At first he was traumatised by what had happened but he decided to utilise it to his personal advantage. He conjured up a list of people he'd like to act some veangance on for any of their wrongdoing they had once bestowed upon the hapless man throughout his life. From car manufacturers to insurance brokers, Ant tracked them all down for their inevitable Christmas kiss under the mistletoe that would also become the final kiss of their lives.

Whomever unlucky enough to open their doors to them are mesmerized by the melancholic melody originated from a cursed pipe not realizing that at the same time their souls are drained and lost forever.

The Mittens

On a cold Christmas morning, little Suzy rushed out of her warm bed and into the living room where the Christmas tree was standing. Out of breath and filled with excitement she looked over to her mom and dad sitting by the fireplace. "Well, what are you waiting for?" They said to her. On that cue she began to ravage the presents that sat underneath the tree. Each gift revealed everything that you could expect a young girl to get, dolls...make up...baking set.

As she becomes preoccupied with the things she has gotten, her father has to tell her that she still has overlooked one more gift under the Christmas tree that "Mommy must have put under the tree while Daddy wasn't looking." Suzy's mother looks at him and shakes her head "I thought you put that under the tree?" Suzy can no longer contain her excitement and rips the package apart in a frenzy. She takes the wrapping paper away to find a pair of light blue mittens. She lets out a sigh of disappointment as her mother and father look on.

Later that day Suzy is getting ready to go out and play in the snow. Her mother slips the fuzzy mittens over her hands. "Don't go get into too much trouble and be back in an hour. Suzy bolts out the door before her mother can even finish.

Shortly thereafter, Suzy begins throwing a ball with the other kids in the neighborhood. When one of them throws it too far and it goes into the woods Suzy yells, "I'll get it!" She disappears into the wooded area to find the ball. When Suzy does not return, one of the kids screams, "Suzy!" There is no reply. "She must be lost, I'll go try to find her." Johnny says. Johnny treks up the snow covered hill and dissolves into the same wooded area as Suzy. Seconds later we hear Johnny bellow out a wailing screech. The rest of the kids get scared and disperse into their homes.

One by one, each of the neighborhood kids begin to perish. Could this be the work of an innocent child and her pair of mysterious mittens? Or is something more ominous at work here? Find out if little Suzy can lead you into, THE TWILIGHT ZONE!

A young man gets a wishbone from his father for Christmas which turns out to be a bone from his dead mother.

The Dreidel of Doom!

Barry Cohen is a quiet man. He keeps himself to himself. When his family come round to celebrate Hanukkah they spin their Dreidel. Where it stops no one knows and if it doesn't stop spinning, Charlie Sheen stops winning! (Yes, Charlie Sheen guest stars in my episode of Twilight Zone!) Chuck of course is Barrys brother yet doesn't have the same surname as he changed it to Sheen, cause he felt like!

If the dreidel doesn't stop, Chuck will eat his family and you thought your goose was cooked!

Who will survive and what indeed will be left of them.
