The Outer Limits Theme

The Outer Limits is an American television series. Similar in style to the earlier The Twilight Zone, with more science fiction than fantasy stories, The Outer Limits is an anthology of discrete story episodes, sometimes with a plot twist at the end. The original series was filmed in artistic black & white and ran for two seasons from 1963 to 1965. In 1995, the series was revived on the Showtime network and ran for seven seasons until 2002.

    Great but not as classic as Twilight zone (60s) … Outer limits (60s) was a close second to TZ.

    The series from 1995-2002 is actually Canadian, it was filmed in British Columbia. The older series from the 1960s are american.

    Does anyone know what the music is called that Flight of Fear at Kings Island plays? It used to be called Outer Limits, but it still plays the same music…

    You guys all know the “Dead March” written by Bach, right? (The Undertaker’s Theme song from WWE)

    Well “The Outer Limits” theme song is written with the exact same notes!

    Thats what makes it sound so scary…Just sayin’

    I use to be really scared of this when I was young just hearing the intro brings back so many memories

  15. thewewguy8t88 says:

    could u imagine if they made a movie about this show like the twilight zone.

    Statement: I wish someone would upload just the music.

  17. rebuiltHK47 says:

    Agreement: No. But it was almost as good. It didn’t focus on bringing out points or lessons about meatbag human nature/interaction like Twilight Zone did; but more on just being spooky. At least that’s what I recall about the Outer Limits.

  18. rebuiltHK47 says:

    Observation: The later Outer Limits shows were far more creepier than those of the original.

    Contemplative: If only there was one long version of the intro that could be made combining the list of everything “they” control without it sounding broken up. That would be awesome.
