Editor's Note
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.

Professional Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "MONSTERS holds our attention ever more deeply as we realize it's not a casual exploitation picture....Edwards is brilliant at evoking the awe and beauty he has been building toward..." 11/17/2010

Entertainment Weekly
"The result impresses thanks to the lead actors' performances and Edwards' skilled efforts." -- Grade: B 11/17/2010

Empire
5 stars out of 5 -- "Edwards creatures are astonishingly rendered: pylon-sized hybrids of octopus, giraffe and jellyfish, balletically staking through the night, their bioluminescent tentacles seemingly as capable of tenderness as they are devastation. They are perfectly alien..." 12/03/2010

Sight and Sound
"What Edwards achieves here is in the grand tradition of fantasy literature and cinema....MONSTERS is a radical parable for an alienated age." 01/01/2011

Uncut
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he visual elements are consistently attractive, and the whole affair deserves credit for simply doing something different..." 01/01/2011

Total Film
5 stars out of 5 -- "[Y]ou'll leave with no doubt of Edwards' capacity for empathy. He proves his stones as a showman too." 12/02/2010
