Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A team of archaeologists in Alaska uncovers what appears to be an ancient burial mound. It is indeed that -- except that the remains contained therein are those of aliens from outer space. The trouble begins when one of the archaeologists decides to profit from this remarkable discovery -- and without giving the story away, it is well to remember the words on Shakespeare's grave: "Curst be he who moves my bones." Dedicated to Outer Limits special effects wizard Michael Blacklock, who died shortly after filming was completed, "Sarcophagus" originally aired on August 7, 1998.
