Tense Twilight Zone Scene Gets Modern Update With Fast-Paced Drum Solo

2018-04-07 19:34
More than 50 years after its release, a YouTuber has brought back a scene from a 1960 episode of the Twilight Zone television series. Irish musician David Dockery is known for his intricate drum pieces to accompany scenes from movies and TV shows. His latest video, shared on Friday, April 6, features a segment from the Twilight Zone episode "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street." In the episode, a group of residents on a quiet suburban street become paranoid after a strange event shuts down power, communications, and even cars. The scene which inspired Dockery’s piece shows the residents keeping a watch on the home of their neighbor, Les Goodman, at night, after they have accused him of acting mysteriously. Another neighbor, Steve Brand, approaches Goodman but after a short exchange becomes himself a target of suspicion when confronted by a third neighbor, Charlie Farnsworth. Dockery masterfully matches the actors' cadence with his own and finds beats fitting each actor's presentation highlighting not only his drumming skills, but also the rhythm of the dialog. Dockery’s work has previously combined drum solos with scenes from "It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia," "School of Rock," and "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" among others.
