A modern revival of the classic science fiction horror anthology show The Outer Limits (1963). Episodes often have twist-endings and involve aliens. Sometimes, a story from one episode continues in a later episode.
This tv movie features two stories by qv##nm0785245##, who also wrote the stories of the original qv##tt0052520## series. "The Theater": A young girl goes to the cinema to see qv##tt0032599## with qv##nm0000026##. Suddenly she sees scenes from her own life instead of the comedy. The scenes actually took place earlier that day. She is very confused because the other people didn't see those scenes. As she goes to see the movie again, scenes from her future appear on the screen. And that future is very frightening... "Where the Dead Are": Dr. Benjamin Ramsey is professor at the university in Boston in 1868. In front of his students he performes an appendix operation. As the patient O'Neil dies after the operation, Dr. Ramsey discovers that O'Neil suffered from a serious scull fracture twelve years ago.

There are films in the mind of every human being: films that replay the past and, on rare occasions, films that reveal the future, warning us in no uncertain terms that every minute is precious and we must always live our lives to the fullest. Of course, these films would only be seen if they are developed and projected from... the Twilight Zone.

Both of the once lost stories have been found - this film will give us an idea of what it would have been like from Rod Sterling.
The first one is a 30 minute short. It's not bad but I wish they would have given us a glimpse into the future of the doctor as they did his girlfriend before it ended - we were left with the events that just pass but nothing about his future.
The second is about an hour long and is a little different take of the story of The Island of Dr. Moreau. I liked this one quite a bit. The atmosphere alone is watching for me.
Overall I liked this - I don't think I would watch it again but it was worth watching.
