They arrive in the middle of the Oktoberfest pretending to be FBI agents and they interrogate the only witness, the drunkard without credibility Ed Brewer, and Dean flirts with the blonde bartender Jamie. After interviewing Ed, who insists to tell that Dracula has attacked the victim, they decide to leave town. However, the youngster Rick Deacon is slaughtered by a werewolf in accordance with the statement of his girlfriend and sooner the mummy kills the security guard in the Canonsburg Museum and the brother decides to investigate further. When Dean and Jamie are attacked by Dracula and Dean yanks his ear, they conclude that it is skin of a shapeshifter that is impersonating the Universal Studio classic monsters.

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.
