The one great thing about the Horror genre, you always seem to unearth some fantastic little indie gems. Next month things will get very claustrophobic for Zoe Kazan when The Monster gets its UK Home Entertainment release. From the director of the horror cult flick, The Strangers (Bryan Bertino) and Icon Film Distribution /Kaleidoscope Entertainment have released the UK Trailer…
Kathy (Zoe Kazan) and her 10-year-old daughter Lizzy (Ella Ballentine) are trapped and tormented in a pitch-black forest by a screeching creature. It is unlike anything they have heard before. Not human. Not animal. A monster.
With their relationship at breaking point, Kathy is on the edge while Lizzy is all out of faith in her mother but tries to stay brave and fearless. To survive the night, Kathy must summon her most primal instinct to protect herself and her daughter from what’s lurking in the darkness…
The story may not be the most original story in the world, then very few great horrors are. It’s all about the delivery and this looks a lean, mean horror with a dynamic building atmosphere of dread aided by strong characterisation and performances.
Next, to Zoe Kazan (The Big Sick), the film also stars Ella Ballentine (The Captive) and Scott Speedman (The Strangers, Underworld).
The Monster will be released on DVD and Digital HD from 8th October.
