Welcome back to all of you fans of fiendish film and TV! Those howls you hear from the creatures of the night need be no cause for alarm, you are safe down here with us in the Retroist vault! Us? Yeah, that’s the one and only Doug McCoy behind the concession stand and you can see the esteemed Daniel XIII manning the projector. We also have good friend to the Retroist site Claymation Werewolf as head usher and Phishbo3s in the ticket booth!
Tonight for your viewing pleasure we have the Tales From the Darkside episode entitled ‘Monsters in My Room’ which originally aired on December 22nd, 1985. The twelfth episode of season two, this episode stars a very young Seth Green (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Family Guy) as Timmy, a child that has a big problem with his stepfather Biff (Greg Mullavey). Even though Timmy’s mom, Helen (Beth McDonald) continues to ask him to be patient with his new stepfather it’s clear that Biff is running out of patience with how he perceives Timmy is being mollycoddled. This doesn’t help Timmy’s life any as there are Monsters in his room…though the real question of this episode is which is truly the bigger threat?
