Poorly scripted adaptation of a great author's work
ROUSE HIM NOT is a generally average episode of the MONSTERS TV show and hardly something to get excited about. It sees a woman moving into an ancestral home only to discover that something very nasty is living within its walls thanks to an old-time warlock who used to get up to all sorts of summoning shenanigans. A mysterious stranger must help her fight against the evil.
The problem with ROUSE HIM NOT is that the script is sloppily written, with lots of inexplicable character behaviour and generally poor decisions. It seems to have been written in a hurry with a minimum of effort. It's a real pity, because this was based on a story by the rarely-filmed Manly Wade Wellman, one of my favourite authors, and it's a real disservice to him. Cult actor Alex Cord makes an appearance and is the most interesting thing here.
