"Who do you think you are?"
30 August 2010 | by (the Mad Hatter's tea party.) – See all my reviews

I got a friend who's fan of this TV show and he gave me a couple to watch ("The Cocoon" and "Fool's Gold"). I've only seen two episodes before; one I actually liked; "The Mother Instinct", but the other I was less than impressed with; "Pool Sharks". For such a low-budget, confined series --- it stormed up creative ideas and resourcefully churned out competent looking monster make-up effects.

"The Cocoon" is the 20th episode from Season one of the TV series "Monsters" which sees a wealthy, beautiful lady in hospital with amnesia who hires a detective to uncover her past. The detective's girlfriend happens to be a psychic, who he asks for her help and what she finds out about this beauty is something rather baffling, but also downright horrifying.

The out-there concept is foreseeable in its developments, but still its sharply paced as it builds a real air of mystery around the central character (superbly performed by a ravishing Kim Ulrich) and where she crafts out an ominous presence with her devious intentions. No real monster/s on show. The low-key atmosphere is dark and gloomy within its few sets. There's a special guest appearance by Billy Drago, who's particularly sober with his performance as detective Richard and Silvana Gallardo is good as she digs through flashbacks of mysterious lady.
