  • A Parody of a Real life anomaly

    8.0
    The reason this episode is one of my favorites is because it deals with an offbeat anomaly found in REAL life! Namely, Conjoined Twins or Siamese Twins. Actually,I'm Not that much of a horror fan but instead watch this series because I look for the bizarre. In other words, I enjoy a monster Not for how horrifying it is but rather how offbeat it is.



    So it certainly thrills me when I find something based on an anomaly from REAL life, namely the Siamese Twins from this episode. But what made me rate it an 8 is because the Siamese Twins were depicted as somewhat silly and ludicrous. But I have to admit their constant bickering is understandable as that behavior can be found in the biographies of REAL Siamese Twins. Being physically joined together, their Lack of privacy would obviously aggravate and even exasperate them at times. In my book-collection, I have many books on Real-life Sideshow freaks, and the chapters written about Siamese Twins certainly confirm the depiction of Conjoined Twins as shown in this "Monsters" episode.



    But as I said, the episode's depiction of their behavior as ludicrous made me rate it an 8. So if you want to see a much more acceptable and palatable portrayal of Siamese Twins, I would recommend the movie "Chained For Life," which featured REAL Siamese Twins Violet and Daisy Hilton. Yes, the Hiltons were REAL Siamese Twins, and that's the main reason that aforementioned movie is a classic. So you could say that the Monsters television-episode is a tribute to the movie.moreless
