A boy befriends a monster from a magical world under
his bed. I've loved this since I was a kid and so glad
to have it on dvd that has good picture and sound,
but only the trailer. I recommend this great 80's
In this mind thrilling adventure through the underworld; a boy named Brian gets challenged to sleep in his brother’s room where there is a so called monster. Brian gets so worked up trying to catch the monster he makes a trap. When Brian catches him, he convinces him to go to the underworld with him. In the underworld he meets some funky and radical monsters. After some cool adventures Brian’s brother gets kidnapped by the evil ruler of the underworld. Brian and his friends save him by using one power that can kill the monsters, but you have to find this power out by watching the movie.
COMPARISON: I would compare this movie to Harry and the Henderson’s.
• ACTOR/ACTRESSES: Brian Stevenson – Fred Savage
• Maurice – Howie Mandel
Their performance was amazing.
THE GOOD: It’s one of those movies that you can watch over and over again, it won’t get boring, and if you by it you will never regret your decision. The range of age is from 5-unlimited in my opinion.
THE BAD: It could be frightening for some younger viewers.
THE UGLY: The visual effects weren’t the best I’ve seen but made the monsters look realistic.
Story: Eric Stevenson(Fred Savage) moves into a different state and has a hard time adjusting there. He later on befriends a mischievous monster named Maurice(Howie Mandell) that is easily harmed by bright lights. Eric and Maurice become friends and they visit Maurice underworld home. Later on Eric's brother is kidnapped by the same creature that bullies Maurice as well as the ruler of that underworld and now has to rely on the help of Maurice as well as a friend and a former bully to help him retrieve his brother.
This movie brings back a lot of memories and after seeing it recently it still holds well after all these years. Howie Mandell is hilarious as the wise-cracking but fun-loving Maurice. Fred Savage as well as the rest of the cast is good also. I love the imagination of the writers also. Sure the movie has some dark undertones but as I kid I loved it and as an adult I still love it. The sets are creative down to the monsters. Now for the people that are comparing Maurice to Beetlejuice, there is a stark contrast there: Maurice is a likable doofus with a heart that sometimes takes his antics to far(like using hands to chew up an unlucky person's homework). Beetlejuice, on the other hand is an unlikable creep that put his ulterior motives before anything else. There is a very big difference in character there.Read more ›
