I've been writing about THE MONSTER, the newest flick from Bryan Bertino (THE STRANGERS) for some now, so I thought I had a handle on what the whole thing was about. I was dead wrong. The trailer for the film has just dropped and it is so much more than I could ever imagine. It's basically CUJO with a monster instead of a rabid dog, but that description doesn't capture how gorgeous and intense it all looks in motion. This looks like it's shaping up to be one of the year's best genre releases, and I hope it doesn't get ignored like so many of these movies do. Check out the trailer below!
From the creator of The Strangers comes a world of the lost; freezing, spitting needles of rain, thunderbolt lightning, hypothermic cold and disorientating utter darkness.
Mother and daughter trapped and tormented in a black forest by a screeching creature – it is unlike anything we have heard before. Not human. Not animal. Like a thousand horses, like a mother’s clamour, a baby’s wail, a father’s howl.
Their relationship at breaking point, 10-year-old Lizzy is all out of faith in her mother Kathy but tries to stay brave and fearless. Kathy, on the edge, barely keeping it together, knows that only a mother’s protective love, her most primal instinct, can save her daughter from what’s lurking in the darkness…
THE MONSTER stars Zoe Kazan, Scott Speedman, Aaron Douglas, and Ella Ballentine. It storms into theaters on November 11th following its DirectTV exclusive debut tonight.
