Fairly good Bloch adaptation
11 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

REAPER, an episode of the lacklustre MONSTERS TV show, is one of the better stories, adapted as it is from a short story by horror writer supreme Robert Bloch. The narrative, which is set entirely in an old people's home, sees an old man making a deal with the Grim Reaper: he'll offer him plenty more victims if the Reaper spares his own life.

It's a snappy, straightforward outing, laced with black comedy and a storyline that makes perfect sense. The special effects, although limited, are perfectly acceptable for the scope of the narrative and the acting is pretty decent. This mean-spirited outing is what I'd hoped for from the MONSTERS TV show and something they undertook all too infrequently, which is a shame.
