Monster film from the director of The Strangers gets date, new title

Last Updated on August 5, 2021

Bryan Bertino (THE STRANGERS) is back in action! His newest flick THERE ARE MONSTERS has been gifted a release date by A24, who have changed the title to the much simpler, but blander THE MONSTER. The film will see the light of day on October 6th, premiering on DirecTV with a theatrical run to follow in November.

Weirdly, DirecTV has been nabbing a bunch of great genre titles lately, the most recent being THE BLACKCOAT'S DAUGHTER. I don't know what's up with them, but I'm proud they're delivering the goods.

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.
