Cheesy rubber monster tale
1 July 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

THE CUTTY BLACK SOW is an episode of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE which at least has a monster in it so the entertainment value is higher than in some other episodes featuring generic weird stuff or characters playing the Devil. The story is a familiar one in which a little kid is scared out of his wits by his dying grandma's horror story involving the titular monster. As the course of the episode plays out, it turns out the story isn't a fairy tale after all...

The unlikely-named Huckleberry Fox is the likable lead in this quirky and fairly effective story. It's all completely over the top and a ridiculous-looking rubber monster doesn't help, but at least it's never boring. If they'd done away with the annoying bagpipe music that keeps playing throughout it would have been even better...
