A simple story, well told
2 August 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A BOND OF SILK is a thoroughly simplistic episode of the MONSTERS TV show and one of the many TV episodes made throughout the decade to deal with the evil of giant spiders. You can't get more straightforward than the one-line plot here, which involves a couple entering their hotel room only to find out that it's already occupied by a giant arachnid.

Saying that, the execution here is pretty good, which is a surprise given the usual quality of the MONSTERS TV episodes. The writers wisely keep the spider off-screen until the last moments so there's plenty of suspense and build-up to foreshadow her arrival. When we do finally see her, there's some delightfully old-fashioned stop motion effects that made this viewer very happy.
