The original story for monster under the bed goes like this:

I begin tucking him into bed and he tells me, “Daddy check for monster under my bed.” I look underneath for his amusement and see him, another him, under the bed, staring back at me quivering and whispering, “Daddy there’s somebody on my bed.”

-Juan J Ruiz

 

Monsters are always scaring our kids, but what happens when we cannot differentiate between a monster and a kid. How do we know the child who is saying us that is afraid of a monster is actually a child but not a monster itself.

Monster under the bed is based on such a concept and was one of the highest rated stories in reddit thread which asked users to create a scary story in 2 sentences.

While the 1st line of the story seems pretty homely and simple, the second sentence leaves us a in a cliffhanger. The horror movie like the story has been executed quite well.

The movie has been executed excellently, inspite of being quite small, it manages to hold a viewer’s attention leaves them scared towards the end. The innocence of a child, which turns out to be a monster towards the end leaved you scarred. Is not that what is the very basic aim of any scary movie?
