Adapt to this poster and trailer for low-budget creature feature Monsters

08.16.2010

UPDATE: The newest trailer is also now below, or in HD at Apple.

Filmmaker Gareth Edwards' creature thriller MONSTERS has built plenty of buzz despite a price tag inversely proportional to the beasts of the movie. You'll be able to spot the mutated horrors yourself when the movie hits VOD 9/24 and theaters 10/29, but for now you can check out the latest poster and the trailer below. 

The synopsis: Six years ago previously, a NASA probe returning to earth with samples of an alien life form, crashed over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear, and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain "the creatures"... The 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.

Extra Tidbit: Reminds me a bit of Dan Brereton's comic series "Giantkiller", which would also make a cool (but substantially more expensive) movie.

Does this sound a lot like District 9? Yes, but there's nothing wrong with that, and this actually looks good. Guess I'll be seeing two movies on October 29.

It's quite good. More Jaws than District 9 as it's more about suspense/build-up and it doesn't show the real money shots until towards the end.

But when it does, it doesn't disappoint.

Good trailer, but that sound library 5 year old girl scream at the end is atrocious.
