One-note idea
17 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

POOL SHARKS is a very predictable episode of the MONSTERS TV show. It feels like the writer came up with a single line idea - how about a guy playing pool with a vampire? - had it greenlit, and then struggled to write a 30-minute screenplay around it.

Very little happens in this story, other than the usual old vampire clichés are paraded out again to very little effect. The acting of the male lead is particularly dull, as he's completely uncharismatic, although Rebecca Downs is fairly effective as a sexy female vampire. This kind of story can only end one way, really, and the climax holds no surprises.
