Good, but a very slow build
1 June 2006 | by (Perth, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Chocolate, from series creator Mick Garris, is a good story. It plays out very well and doesn't fall prey to too many clichés or lapses of logic. The story is told in flashback by our hero Jamie (Henry Thomas) who is recounting how he came to be spattered in blood to an unseen man. The thing that will probably turn off most younger fans of the genre is that Chocolate is very old fashioned in a way. It's all about the slow build. Garris wants you to fully sympathize with Jamie and he's prepared to take his time to build this very one note story until it is perfect. When the bloody finale finally comes it is a bit of a letdown, but the build has been so well done that one is willing to forgive it for its lackluster denouement. All in all Chocolate is an average episode from a capable director who has done far better things. Still, its nice to see something other than a freakshow or gorefest can be included in the series and still be considered horror.
