A nice start to the series
4 October 2020 | by davidjhuntleySee all my reviews

I'd never heard of Monsterland before this and I wasn't sure of what to expect. This episode was SOOO good! The thought behind most, if not all, of the episodes is that the monster is the one that's in us. The monster is built into our circumstances and the choices we make from them. Although it gives me slight Blackmirror vibes, it's definitely its own vehicle. What you initially believe to be the threat is only on the surface. When you dig into the characters and their situations, that's when the ride begins. Excellent episode.
