The Monkeys Yawn
27 September 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Monkeys Paw one the most well known horror stories ever so how could anyone go wrong making it in to a scary experience for TV viewing, er easily I'm afraid. Season 3 has it's fair share of clunkers but this equals Thou Ravished Bride for worst of the season. The original tale is short, creepy and nasty and would have worked perfectly as a AHP in a 25 minute slot. This drawn out version takes all the things that made the original so good and makes for tedious viewing-some of the acting is so awful I was wishing I had a monkeys paw to make it all go away. This episode and many others of Season 3 make you realise why there was no season 4 for Hitch, a Shame as all 7 seasons of AHP and the first two of AHH are essential viewing.
