Promising story sunk by quite awful performances
28 March 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've recently been checking out these cult 1980s-era TV shows and MONSTERS is the latest addition to the fold. It has a thoroughly memorable introduction but the stories turn out to be low budget, silly, and often very cheesy. The third episode of the first series, NEW YORK HONEY, is a case in point.

The story begins with a harassed couple going to deal with their upstairs neighbour, an eccentric old man who plays his music too loud. It turns out he's keeping bees inside his apartment, and before long the husband becomes way too involved with the old man's young lover. Inevitably there's a (quite literal) sting in the tale.

The story is okay and probably would have worked well in written form, but it's the execution that sinks this one; in particular, the actors. It's as if they were encouraged to go all-out in the overacting; as a result this is nothing more than a shrill, histrionic pantomime. Despite an arresting turn from Andrea Thompson the acting is just too over the top for this to be enjoyable.
