Tales from the Darkside: Hush (1988)
Hush feels like Elm Street and it's pretty well done for a late nite TV show
for many yrs i couldn't member anything other than the plot and wasn't sure if i had seen a movie or not. i was in 6th grade when i saw this episode 1st air late nite on Sunday. when i asked friends about it none of them had any clue what i was talking about. then i recently found this episode and instantly realized this was it. what was awesome about this episode is how it felt very much like a slasher movie, somethin like Friday the 13th or elm street. they managed to successfully put together many aspects of a teen slasher movie into a 20+min TV show. you have death scenes, hot teen babysitter in the "final girl" role, a monster chasing the 2 thru the house and forcing them to rly be clever about how they can kill it while desperately trying to avoid being discovered.
there were some suspenseful and tense moments where the 2 realized they had to fight this beast alone. the biggest element that made Hush feel like a teen slash flick is the violence. initially the machine was killing other household appliances but then it kills the pet bird, its there u see that its capable of killing living things. ultimately it even kills the mother who comes home and while the death isn't bloody its still relatively gruesome and it doesn't happen off camera either, just like our fave slasher flix.
