THE OUTER LIMITS: THE ZANTI MISFITS
(USA, 1963) 51 minutes
Throughout history, compassionate minds have pondered the dark and disturbing question:
what is society to do with those members who are a threat to society, those malcontents and
misfits whose behavior undermines and destroys the foundations of civilization? Different
ages have found different answers. Misfits have been burned, branded and banished. Today,
on this planet Earth, the criminal is incarcerated in humane institutions.....or he is executed.
Other planets use other methods. This is the story of how the perfectionist rulers of the planet
Zanti attempted to solve the problem of the Zanti misfits.
THE OUTER LIMITS: DEMON WITH A GLASS HAND
(USA, 1964) 51 minutes
Through all the legends of ancient peoples - Assyrian, Babylonian, Sumerian, Semitic - runs

through the centuries...

unsought, uninvited, possessor of fearsome power, purveyor of dark deed, a relentless traveler
on the road to its mysterious goal...
