The Secret Story Behind Kelly’s ‘The Box’

Our buddy over at The Hollywood North Report has some great news for you, he knows the plot behind Director Richard Kelly’s upcoming film based on a Twilight Zone story, The Box! It comes from episode 50, which first aired on March 7, 1986, “A mysterious man offers a couple a bizarre deal: if they will push a button on a box that will kill one person they don’t know, they will get a million dollars. After some contemplation, the couple goes ahead and pushes the button. The man tells them that they will indeed get the money. And somewhere, sometime, another couple will get the same box, and the same offer…” Sounds like one of the Simpsons Treehouse of Horror episodes too.
