Goofs

When the mother comes to give the kid medicine, it is 12:05. When the clock shows again, right after he takes the pills, it changes from 12:06 to 12:07. Then when the kid asks what midnight is, right after the pills, the clock shows the time change from 12:09 to 12:10 - a very quick time change. See more »

Fooled You/Fooled Them/Fooled Time
21 April 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

"Monsters" has to do with a vampire who is tired of being alive. He enlists the help of an impressionable boy and his unwitting family to finally be done. This reminds me of the 1960's, sentimental fantasy writers. The second episode is just plain stupid. It's the old bit where a group of overlords decide to come and punish Earth. Finally, a man and his wife get caught between minutes in a time thing. It's sort of like Schrodiger's Cat and quantum physics, two things existing in space in different places at the same time.
