Amazing Stories DVD

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Steven Spielberg's foray into television, Amazing Stories, was based loosely on a pulpy sci-fi magazine from the '40s and '50s. Yet despite the retro concept, Amazing Stories brought high gloss and state-of-the-art production values to their yarns of horror, sci-fi, and fantasy. Spielberg directed many episodes and wrote most. Part of the fun of this collection is seeing if you can recognize the stars under all that 80's hair and big glasses!  Many "names" worked either in front of or behind the camera, including Martin Scorsese, Sam Waterston, Tim Robbins, Clint Eastwood, Harvey Keitel, Brad Bird, Burt Reynolds, Kyra Sedgwick, David Carradine, Patrick Swayze, Jon Cryer and John Lithgow. The storytelling is crackerjack, and the trip down TV memory lane priceless.  Check our Catalog.
