Nightmare Fuel: Monk
"Mr. Monk Bumps His Head": Monk quietly giving his summation while thickly swarmed with bees, apparently having ignored the sheriff's warning that the bees can smell fear.
"Mr. Monk and the Three Julies" - Monk discovers Matthew Teeger's deceased mother's stuffed body in an upstairs room, in a chair gently rocking in the wind. It's a shoutout to Psycho.
"Mr. Monk and the Magician" - imagine being Monk, tied to a chair in a basement, and this magician will kill you and incinerate you in a furnace.
"Mr. Monk Buys a House" - imagine being Monk and Natalie being held hostage by "Honest" Jake Phillips.
"Mr. Monk Goes to the Dentist": being tortured by a sadistic dentist who is Genre Savvy enough to compare it to living through Marathon Man.
In "Mr. Monk's 100th Case," when they play the tape of the 911 call for the murder of Cassandre Rank, you might feel chills running through your spine. Then there is the series of rapid black-and-white photos zooming in on the body of victim #2, Barbara McFarland. Also, it's less tear-jerker and more shivering seeing the archived news broadcast excerpt about Trudy's death, as they show a series of photos in quick succession with newspaper headlines overlaying across the screen, and a photo of Trudy's bombed car with the sound of an explosion.
