Overview

Two people who barely know one another are thrown into otherworldly danger in this independent thriller. Andrew Kaulder Scoot McNairy is an American photojournalist on assignment in Mexico at a time when working there has become unusually dangerous -- after a NASA space probe crash-landed not far from the American border, alien creatures that made their way into the satellite were released, and have since thrived in Northern Mexico. Now the area is regarded as an "infected zone," where the aliens who resemble giant squids have been contained but move about freely, sometimes attacking humans who cross their paths. While working on a project, Kaulder's publisher contacts him to ask a big favor; his daughter Samantha Whitney Able has been traveling outside the United States, and would appreciate an escort from Southern Mexico to California. Not wanting to anger his boss, Kaulder agrees and books passage on a ferry that travels through a safe zone. But bad timing, bad luck, and some foolish choices by Kaulder prevent him and Samantha from catching the ship, and now they have to travel through alien territory with the help of some armed guards, hoping to avoid contact with the bloodthirsty creatures. Monsters was the first feature film from special effects artist-turned-director Gareth Edwards.

    Fey and striking visuals. I guess I was expecting a gigantic firefight---like in CRANFORD (just kidding) and RETURN TO CRANFORD (just kidding). It may be the surprising fatalistic approach (no TREMORS mancave firefight or... sweet little old ladies with assault weapons?,,,) that shifts it into surrealistic territory. OR is it an allegory on "Illegal Aliens," (ALIENS) with a humongus Arizona border fence? Kind of a nightmare along the lines of the old KRONOS in Mexico? It's either fun or masochistic to let it wash over you, making you wonder if you would fall in love during a horrible invasion. It must be wonderful to find a well-lit full-service station still open.
