TV movie remake trash
10 May 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I MARRIED A MONSTER is an ill-advised late '90s remake of the 1950s B-movie sci-fi classic I MARRIED A MONSTER FROM OUTER SPACE. In this version, the story has been modernised to the then-present day, with a situation and bunch of characters who look like they belong in some insipid daytime soap rather than a decent sci-fi film.

And, at the risk of being sexist, I'd say this was a film aimed at the housewife market. It's a safe, non-confrontational production, in which the scares are diluted and the sci-fi elements handled in that embarrassingly cheesy way so beloved of the decade. The TV movie budget means we're saddled with weak scripting and even worse special effects.

Future DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES star Richard Burgi plays a suburban husband whose trip into the woods at night sees him returning changed...somehow. There's a mildly successful air of mystery surrounding the production, and a few eerie scenes reminiscent of INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, but it's weak overall. It doesn't help that there are some AWFUL CGI effects used to animate the aliens which make the entire climax a laughing stock. As usual, stick with the original for the best version of the story.
