Saturday Frights: Twilight Zone – “A Small Talent For War” (1986)

Saturday Frights - Sean Hartter
Welcome back to all of you fans of fiendish film and TV! Those howls you hear from the creatures of the night need be no cause for alarm, you are safe down here with us in the Retroist vault! Us? Yeah, that’s the one and only Doug McCoy behind the concession stand and you can see the esteemed Daniel XIII manning the projector. We also have good friend to the Retroist site Claymation Werewolf as head usher and Phishbo3s in the ticket booth!

We are sticking with the “New Twilight Zone” this week, the second segment we discussed on the latest 80s Anthologies: Episode By Episode podcast entitled “A Small Talent For War”. This segment features John Glover (Gremlins 2, Smallville) as an Alien Ambassador who appears before the UN to warn them that due to our small wars and petty border skirmishes the entire Human race will be wiped away. There is still hope though as the representatives of the UN gain a reprieve for one day while they desperately try to settle their long standing differences. Can it be done in time?
