Weird dream fantasy episode
13 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

PERCHANCE TO DREAM is an odd episode of the MONSTERS TV show that seems to have been inspired by the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET films. There's no Freddy Krueger-style villain here, instead the main character is suffering from disturbing dreams which even more disturbingly seem to have the power to come to life.

What this all boils down to is a weird adventure in which a couple of characters are attempting to escape from a fantastic dream-scape world. Given the nature of the story, the episode is chock-full of cheesy special effects which it's fair to say have dated somewhat. In fact the whole thing kind of reminded me of an episode of the 1980s British interactive TV show KNIGHTMARE, in which kids wandered around a computer-generated world on a fantasy quest.
