DHM & Tom Whalen Reveal Their Next Twilight Zone Print: “The Invaders”

“This is one of the out-of-the-way places, the unvisited places, bleak, wasted, dying. This is a farmhouse, handmade, crude, a house without electricity or gas, a house untouched by progress. This is the woman who lives in the house, a woman who’s been alone for many years, a strong, simple woman whose only problem up until this moment has been that of acquiring enough food to eat, a woman about to face terror, which is even now coming at her from – The Twilight Zone.”

As part of their on-going, officially licensed The Twilight Zone series of prints with artist Tom Whalen, Dark Hall Mansion has just given us a look at the next print and it’s for the classic episode, “The Invaders.”

The Invaders” originally aired January 27, 1961 and gave us a twist in the realm of science fiction stories.  Most sci-fi threats come from huge spaceships and gigantic monsters.  For this episode, they went in the exact opposite direction and gave us a minuscule menace that tormented actress Agnes Moorehead through the entire episode.  As if THAT wasn’t a big enough surprise….Agnes was the alien and the minature “tormentors” were actualy humans.  (Such a brilliant episode.)

Here is the official announcement from Dark Hall Mansion as well as a look at Tom’s incredible images.

Dark Hall Mansion, under license by CBS Consumer Products, brings you Tom Whalen’s take on the 1961 ‘Twilight Zone’ episode, “The Invaders,” written by Richard Matheson which finds Agnes Moorehead of Orson Welles’ Mercury Players and “Bewitched” fame alone and pitted against somme rather determined alien robots in an unnerving standoff that, in classic “Twilight Zone” fashion, will leave you thinking.

“These are the invaders, the tiny beings from the tiny place called Earth, who would take the giant step across the sky to the question marks that sparkle and beckon from the vastness of the universe only to be imagined. The invaders…who found out that a one-way ticket to the stars beyond has the ultimate price tag…and we have just seen it entered in a ledger that covers all the transactions in the universe…a bill stamped “Paid in Full” and to be found on file in the Twilight Zone.”
