More from Monsters

Monsters (UK-2010; dir. Gareth Edwards) comes to cinemas in the US (October 19) and UK (November 12). Australia? Who knows? Madman Entertainment might. They have the rights, so it's very likely. The film did screen recently at the Melbourne Film Festival.

Here's the new poster:

Monsters takes a "realistic" approach to the giant monster genre, and as such looks like it's definitely worth watching. At the very least I'll be hanging out for the DVD. It reportedly cost only US$15,000 to make.

Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America.

Soon after, new life forms began to appear there and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain "the creatures"...

Our 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.

You can check out the trailer for the movie as well as other posters, plus there's links to earlier articles featured on Undead Backbrain and Undead Brainspasm here.
