A good solid horror themed Monsters episode.

Monsters: Museum Hearts starts in the vault of a natural history museum where ladies man Danny (Patrick Breen) is having his way with Cheryl (Louise Roberts), the only problem is that Danny's fiancé Edwina (Sarah Trigger) finds them. While arguing they are accidentally locked in the vault, while trying to reach a skylight by standing on a crate Danny jumps & falls through it. Inside the crate is a Irish Druid Priestess named Cerridwen (Pamela Dean Kelly), Danny injures is leg & his blood drips onto the corpse which starts to revive it. As the Druid comes back to life she needs a new heart & enlists some help to get it...

Episode twelve from season two of Monsters this originally aired in the US during January 1990, written & directed by Theodore Gershuny this pretty good straight horror story gets season two of Monsters back on track nicely after two awful episodes in The Mandrake Root (1989) & Half as Old as Time (1989). There's no comedy here, no moral messages or bizarre fantasy & I would say Museum Hearts is just a short twenty odd minute horror film, it's maybe not got the best twist as it's a little predictable but as a whole it works. There's three quickly & well fleshed out character's, there's your typical horror film isolated location where they are cut off from the help, a zombified Irish Druid Priestess & some more than decent gore & make-up effects. What's not to like? Well, when all said & done there's not too much to it, I would have liked a little bit more thought in the twist ending & at only twenty odd minutes there's not that much time to develop the story & it felt like it finished just as it was starting.

The entire episode is set in a single location, Museum Hearts is well made with good production values & some nicely shot scenes that are well lit & give off that 80's horror film vibe. The special make-up effects are also very good, the zombie Druid looks good & there's some gore with a ripped-out heart on show. The acting is pretty good with Pamela Dean Kelly making her second appearance on the series after her role on Holly's House (1988) from season one.

Museum Hearts is a very good Monsters episode that isn't a classic since the story doesn't really go anywhere but for what it is it passes twenty odd minutes pleasantly enough.
