Planet of the Apes (co-written by The Twilight Zone’s Rod Serling) is a futuristic environment that reverses the evolutionary track; apes are now running things and humans are the meaningless animals. As astronaut George Taylor, Charlton Heston ultimately proves to his simian keepers that not only is he a creature of worth but, also, very much in the wrong place. The horrible discovery that is actually is in the right place but truly at the wrong time is one of the most terrifying reveals in science-fiction films. Damn you all to hell!
