Supernatural #4.05 Monster Movie (episode review)

Okay, tonight's episode...  again my thoughts might not be too coherent... and I'm probably forgetting a thing or two... but here are my thoughts after the first viewing.  Apologies in advance for any excessive snark and fangirl squeeeing.  I'm feeling especially punchy tonight. ;)

Holy cow.  The whole shot-in-black-and-white thing, the beginning and end credits and even the background music being like that from the old horror movies...  soooo cheesy and schlocky ... and I loved it!!  Especially when that creepy music kept playing when we first see the boys driving and Dean turns the radio off, saying the music sucks around here. Hee!

BOYS IN SUITS!! Squeeee :D


Gary Chalk was the police chief guy! Gary Chalk, who played Col. Chekhov in Stargate SG-1! Squeeee :D  It was pretty cool to hear him talk sans the Russian accent (yes, I admit I haven't seen him in anything else apart from SG-1... yes, I am that sad.. *g*).

What was Lucy's obsession with blotting her lipstick on the napkins?  ... I will come back to this later...

Ah, Jamie.  I read at the board that Kripke had her named after a fan.  A teenaged (I think) girl who was very ill but the show picked up her spirits.  There was a link to her LJ where she had posted the letter Kripke had sent her, telling her that a character would be named after her and the episode number.  Kripke rawks.


Dean marvels at how he came back from Hell unscathed. No wounds, no scars, nothing.  Could he perhaps be a virgin as well? What was the word he used... "re-hymenated"?  *snerk*

Jared mentioned in that CW Source interview that the humor would be quite dry in this ep.  Boy, he wasn't kidding.  But everyone was on their game. :)  Loved Sam's reactions to Dean's musings.

The guy they talked to in the beginning who thought he saw Dracula... for the life of me I can't remember the character's name.  But boy, what a huge beer stein that was, wasn't it.  Heh, poor dope.

Couple making out in a car at some remote location.  A wolf howls in the background.  Girl is fearful.  Guy insists he must wholly satisfy his lustful urges.  Why do I get the feeling this isn't going to end well?

Cut to disgruntled security guy at a museum with a mysterious package.  It's a sarcophagus.  Guy has no idea how it got there.  Is the sarc lid starting to open there in the background? Why do I get the feeling this isn't going to end well?

Dean wants to get lucky with Jamie.  Jamie doesn't appear to be biting.  But we all know she's playing hard to get.  No girl can resist the  New-and-Improved Dean Machine. *g*

Uh oh, Dean isn't standing Jamie up, is he? ;)  He'd better get over there soon.  Look who just flew in... heh.  Okay, was I the only one who cracked up when Dracula arrived on the scene with that "Good Evening" line?  I'm sorry, I couldn't help it. LOL. 

Dean to the rescue! Looks like Drac almost had him there.  But he gets the upper hand... and Drac's ear as well.  And the guy gets away on a MOPED?!!!  Hilarious!!

Intermission sign with some lovely music in the background.  What a perfect time for it. :)

Hmm, interesting that Jamie's friend at the bar or biergarten or whatever it was is named Lucy.  Dracula told Jamie she was the incarnation of his Mina.  In Dracula, Lucy was the name of Dracula's first victim (if I'm remembering the story correctly), as in Lucy Westenra.  

Dean talks with Jamie. Interesting how he told her about his ordeal and said it was a "very" near-death experience... that he's changed and he believes he's on a mission from God.  Ooh, yeah. Heavy stuff.  Jamie asks if he's like some kind of monk and would that mean he's celibate or something to that effect.  Dean: "I hope not." Heh...

So cool to see another shapeshifter.  I did think there was something up with her when she just appeared in the bar as Dean was snogging Jamie. 


Ohhhhh, I get it.  So Lucy leaving the lipstick smudges on the napkin was a plot device.  Aha.  Sam figured it out.

I had to laugh when he was snooping around and heard the organ music.  Then sees the silhouette and you think it's the phantom of the opera, when it's the guy they talked to in the beginning! And he hits a button and starts playing some cheesy Casio music!! LOL!  Sam thinks he's the shapeshifter and grabs the guy's ear.  I love his look of almost horror when he says "It's supposed to come off!" (the ear) The guy of course replies "No it's not!"

Drac is about to fry Lederhosen!Dean, whom he mistakes for Jonathan Harker.  But Dean is, quite literally, saved by the bell.  Ha! Drac ordered pizza.  Loved the snarky delivery guy.  Drac asks nervously if it has garlic on it.  Pizza guy asks if he ordered garlic on the pizza.  Drac practically flinches at the word and says he did not.  Pizza guy: "then it doesn't have garlic." 

Aw, aint that cute. Drac ordered in for Jamie.  I wonder if he knows what her favorite toppings are.  That would be incredibly romantic.  Heh.

Suddenly Drac loses the Bela Lugosi accent and gets into his sob story.  Poor shapeshifter was shunned by his own family.  Called a monster.  Then he realized he could be a bonafide monster, from those monster flicks he loves so much.  He tells Jamie he is lonely.  She says maybe he is lonely because he killed people.  Nah, it's the other way around, shapeshifter assures her.  Yeah, well, I know we got the soppy music and the sniveling shapeshifter, but I for one did not feel sorry for him.  You could've risen above that, you silly old MOTW! But then I guess you'd no longer be a MOTW, would you?

Drac... er, shapeshifter, calls Sam Van Helsing! Love it.  He tries to show Sam that he is no match for him.  He lunges for Dean, only to get the requisite silver bullets through the heart.  I honestly thought it was Sam who had shot him... I practically wanted it to be Sam.  But it was Jamie.   Although, I guess that was the effect they were going for.  He wanted her to be his lover, and she ends up killing him.  And, boy, the guy ended up being a real drama queen with his final exit, didn't he.  I mean, "silver bullets.... *cough* ... *cough* ... I guess... this ... is how the movie should end...  *slumps into chair* *shuts eyes* *draws final breath*"   Heh...

Dean snogs Jamie again.  Sam looks on with some cute younger brother smirking.  Sam is priceless.  Sammy FTW.   *smishes him*  Dean says this is how he'd want the movie to end, the perfect ending.  Sam begs to differ.  He mentions Dean would end it like Porkys 2.  Mmm-hmm.

A few shallow notes:  As was alluded to earlier, the boys looked HAWT tonight.  The suits, Dean in the lederhosen, Sam's GUH-worthy hair...  *happy sigh*

Darned fine episode.  Next week's looks cool, too.  Thank you for making my night, boys! :)
