Box, The (2009) 
Bloated.
1/4 stars

Converting classic twilight episodes is a shaky idea. Remember the 80's movie, which tried its best to retell four separate stories and ended with Dan Aykroyd turning into a were-thingee, which failed and killed an actor in the process? The Box isn't any better, though nobody dies (thank god!).

The premise behind the box is interesting enough: push a button and kill someone to get money. Too bad that all of a sudden there are aliens, salesmen with holes in their faces, and a huge conspiracy to test Earth's morality. This is the classic epidemic that's diseased Hollywood lately. Namely, too much of a big budget with big actors, and too little of story and quality to deliver on the investment. The original twenty-two minute episode is scarier and far more thrilling. This new bloated take is neither scary nor thrilling.
