The Horror at 37,000 Feet is an American horror television movie made for CBS Television by David Lowell Rich. The film first aired in 1973. In the movie, demonic forces terrorize the passengers on a Boeing 747 en route from London to New York.[1]

William Shatner, who 10 years earlier had starred in the Twilight Zone episode "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet," plays the lead role. Shatner described his character's demise in the movie as one of his "unique ways" of dying: "I get sucked out of an airplane while carrying a lit torch into the plane's baggage compartment to try to confront a druid ghost." According to Shatner, many of his fans consider the movie the worst Shatner movie ever.[2]
