That's a Really Weird Idea...
31 August 2011 | by (Iowa, United States) – See all my reviews

Comedic actor Harry Anderson plays Korman, a put-upon comic book artist whose art is about to become a little too interactive. Forced to take experimental potency pills by his cruel wife, Korman's horror illustrations have begun to come to life...and terrorize people in the city. This one is played for laughs, don't look for complex characters or any real horror in this one. The humor works well and the monsters on display here are old-school and very aesthetically pleasing. Collen Camp is delightfully over the top as Korman's demanding wife. This episode is also significant for being sublimely self-referential. It's not for everyone, surely, but it's just camp enough to be a hit.
