Do you remember, as a child, when your parents teased you with the "Tickle Monster"? It turns out that he's more real (and even more malevolent) than you could have ever imagined! With seedy photographer Billy Tagg (Michael McGovern) serving as the ancient entity's latest vessel, the Tickle Monster torments his way through a catalog of Billy's beautiful bondage babes - until no-nonsense homicide detective Greer English (Laura Romeo) catches wind of it. Now, the button-down detective must go undercover in a world where bizarre and macabre fantasies play out via the internet for the whole world to see. Can Greer stop the Tickle Monster's reign of terror or will she become the latest fetish doll to die laughing? Written by
It's an intriguing idea, the actors give fairly good performances, but the cinematography is amateurish, and the script should probably have been gone-over at least one more time before they started filming.
The direction actually isn't half-bad, but the bad camera- and sound-work makes it hard to appreciate, particularly in the outdoors scenes.
The FX aren't spectacular, but they're not bad either.
Overall, I'd call it a good effort on a low budget: I would like to have seen it if they'd had the money for proper sound equipment and taken the time to do things right.
