A couple of words about "Monsters", an upcoming monster movie, and its trailer. This is what I think: micro budgets always deserve a decent dose of hails. And when the movies happens to look as good as what you are about to see, one has to wonder how many gems like this could be produced on a flop's multimillion budget.
This one looks good. Period. After District 9, which was simply amazing, who knew alien creatures could once again awaken my interest. Here is the jist: "Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system.
A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America.
Soon after, new life forms began to appear there and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE.
Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain "the creatures"...
Our story begins when a US journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border."
The Monster pics below don't show much in terms of... well... monsters. But the trailer gives a much better idea of the tone. I have a The Road feeling about this one, with tentacles to boot.
The movie will premiere On Magnolia On Demand September 24th and In Theatres October 29th.
