mutants: The Outer Limits

The Outer Limits ‘Music of the Spheres’

The episode ‘Music of the Spheres’ a student Devon Taylor records what he believes to be a radio signal from outer space. When he takes the recording home, his younger sister Joyce (Kirsten Dunst) listens to it for hours on end in a state of euphoria. The recording seems to have the same effect on all of her friends.

When a group of them are found listening to what they say is music, it’s apparent that they have also begun to mutate. While the government is concerned that this might be an alien attack and doctors try to cure them the students finally come to understand just what the ‘music’ is meant to accomplish.
