This caught me by surprise.

The '70's tv movie gods have answered my prayers! Quite possibly William Shatner's finest non Trek role. ;)

 

This sacred the crap out of me when I was little, but rediscovering it late at night on cable back in the 90's was a cheesy delight.

One of the scariest tv movies of its time. The 70s tv horrors were amazing, but this has been elusive for a while. Paramount seems to be digging into their tv library....which is excellent

Wow, that certainly flew under the radar.  The big question is if it is really a Paramount release or a CBS sub-license

I believe the tv movie was a Paramount Studios production rather that a CBS one.

There's a tribble on the wing of this....  (sorry, I know that's probably been done over and over)

 

Anyway, I'll take one even though I don't remember it at all.  Been a huge airplane disaster fan since Airport '77.   Well, disaster fan period since Earthquake.  :)

It was a CBS production.

I stand corrected. I do hope they start releasing the 70s CBS TV movies-there were quite a few I havent seen since original airing.Is there a difference in quality if they are leased thru CBS?

No difference in quality. Most of the CBS titles have been more than acceptable. MY FAIR LADY has been my only disappointment. But not sure how the elements are but it was filmed in 35mm.
