 Actually, the original Nightmare at 20,000 Feet, which was directed by Richard Donner, was far superior to the Twilight Zone: The Movie version because the back-story of the man's previous mental background was omitted and the overly-cutsey epilogue in the ambulance with Dan Aykroyd undermined the preceeding segment.

 I actually liked the Dan Ackroyd bit at the end. I thought it was a playful wink at the audience that stayed within the boundaries of everything "The Twilight Zone" represents.

Just my opinion.

 The George Miller clip captured the paranoia better in my mind. It really is this sweat-lined nightmare... and Lithgow's fellow passengers are almost as scary as the monster on the wing. I don['t think one is better than the other. Just two distinct takes on the same stoy... which, in my mind, says a lot about the power of the story.

 Actually there are four movie versions of I Am Legend. The last one being I Am Omega starring Mark Dacascos. 

Btw, I loved the wink to Nightmare at 20000 feet when Shatner and Lithgow were both on Third Rock From the Sun. Probably one of the best jokes two actors who've played the same role get to share with the audience.
