More monster in the closet madness
5 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

Yet another 'monster in the closet' story from the 1980s, this time appearing as a short in the form of a TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE episode. The tale features a young boy who's menaced by the various denizens of his bedroom which have a habit of popping up and putting the frighteners on him at night. Inevitably the kid's parents don't believe him so he has to figure out a way to handle them himself.

The episode is notable for featuring future actor Seth Green as the child involved in the supernatural goings-on, and some pretty good effects in the form of various rubbery creatures. It's not exactly frightening, but it is what I'd expect from a TV series entitled TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE so I find it difficult to criticise it too much.
