Brilliant homage to classic horror films!
10 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Monster Movie is one of the funniest episodes of the entire series, as well as one that holds much ambition.

The episode is sure to split opinions, simply because in the middle of this season fans will want to see the storyline of the season continue and not stop for such a light-hearted episode. However, I think this is one of the best stand-alone episodes there can be. It is entertaining, hilarious, and above all, it makes you remember about the type of classic black-and- white horror films there are out there. I thought the plot was simple, but very effective, and some of the scenes are sure to become iconic among the show. Overall, very strong episode, one of the finest of the fourth season.
