Hecklevision at The Hollywood Theatre says
“Mazes & Monsters is a far-out game. Swords... poison... spells... battles... maiming... killing!”

Before Grand Theft Auto, before Mortal Kombat, before even DOOM, Dungeons & Dragons captured the fascination of indoor kids everywhere while creating controversy and panic among many morally-concerned groups, inspiring a made-for-TV movie that rolled for influence and critically failed: MAZES AND MONSTERS.

A young Tom Hanks plays college student Robbie Wheeling, who’s new to Grant University and in need of friends. He finds a group of like-minded people looking for an escape from their problems, leading them to the world of the fantasy role-playing game “Mazes and Monsters” (a lawyer-proofed version of D&D). Things get too real, too fast, and Robbie finds himself lost in the real world while he thinks he’s on an epic adventure to a sacred place. Terrible acting and bizarre delivery from everyone involved - including Mr. Hanks well before he was a known name - make this film the REEFER MADNESS of tabletop gaming and a must-see for pen-and-paper warriors and cult movie connoisseurs alike!
