...a flabby, mini-minded behemoth...
Vincent Canby - New York Times
The surprising thing is, the two superstar directors are thoroughly routed by two less-known directors whose previous credits have been horror and action pictures.
Roger Ebert - Chicago Sun-Times
Miller [leaves] no doubt that he was the finest stylist to emerge in the early 80s, with a sense of narrative rhythm linked to visual development that is wholly original and ravishing.
Dave Kehr - Chicago Reader
Plays much like a traditional vaudeville card, what with its tantalizing teaser opening followed by three sketches of increasing quality, all building up to a socko headline act.

TV show is much better; some mature themes, violence.
Charles Cassady - Common Sense Media
The last two segments are genuine bits of magnificence
Fernando F. Croce - CinePassion
A frightfully lopsided omnibus that begins with two wretched episodes by John Landis and Steven Spielberg and finishes with an engrossing pair by Joe Dante and George Miller.

...doesn't quite capture the magic of the old television series, but it makes a good stab at trying.

Like all anthology films, this one has its high and low points, and not where you'd expect.
Jeffrey M. Anderson - Combustible Celluloid
a roller-coaster homage to adolescence.

The others have a comic strip zeal which makes them intensely watchable, but ultimately it's left to Mad Max wizard Miller to steal the show.

Twilight Zone takes us back to Rod Serling's television dimension where things are not what they seem and fate is full of devious twists and turns.

Four big-name directors were each to helm a segment, but only Dante's cheerfully manic It's a Good Life and Miller's claustrophobic Nightmare at 20,000 Feet really pass muster.

Flawed and uneven, though George Miller's finale is a hoot.

Despite the deaths, it's a decent film

Mark Palermo - Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
Uneven adaptation of classic TV series. Some stories work, others don't, but Scatman Crothers steals his vignette.

Jeffrey Westhoff - Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
Even with big name additions and direction and huge budgets, this project was destined for mediocrity.
