11 Classic Twilight Zone Episodes That Could Be Improved By Colorization
11. The Midnight Sun
In the near future, the world has begun moving closer to the
sun, and everyone is suffering the effects of extreme heat. (On the bright side, it's surely all the
fault of whatever politician the viewer hates the most). After several encounters with various
looters, mad dogs and Englishmen, our heroine's painting of the New York skyline, complete
with enlarged sun, begins to run, as the oil paints melt. She wakes up to find that the whole thing was
just a vicarious dream. In the real
world, the earth is moving farther away from the sun, and everyone is freezing
to death. (but it’s still your least
favorite pol’s fault).
HOW COLORIZATION COULD HELP:
Not much. The film noir style
suits this episode extremely well.
However, various shots of the sun in the sky, as well as the one shot of
the melting painting, really cry out to be colorized, along with as much orange
as can be fit into the shot.
