It's May 11... which means it's National Twilight Zone Day!
To best celebrate the occasion, we recommend a binge of the original series... starting with "The Thirty-Fathom Grave."
I know. This is perhaps an obscure choice to begin; although an intriguing episode, it suffers from all the problems the hour-long forth season brought.
But it's its little-known Michigan connection that makes this a must-watch for all Michiganders.
Docked in Bay City, Michigan, the USS Edson is a retired naval destroyer that we've actually been to before. Although we weren't there for a paranormal investigation, the ship has long been rumored to be haunted... so perhaps a revisit is in store when it is safe to do so.
But before any real-life hauntings were reported, the ship had a cameo in the greatest horror series of them all: The Twilight Zone.
In the episode "The Thirty-Fathom Grave," all the interior shots were filmed aboard the USS Edson, now docked in Bay City, and open (during non-pandemic times) for tours.
It intrigues us that this relatively obscure Twilight Zone episode concerning a haunted ship was filmed aboard a real-life haunted ship here in the great state of Michigan.
