‘The Monster’ Is Here!

In Coming Soon, Movies by Bub Smith0 Comments

Bryan Bertino created one of the best horror movies with The Strangers. A flick that does not get enough credit for how great it is. Not only was it loved by me, but it also turned a nice little profit. This normally means we would get a slew of movies from the film maker, but in the 8 years since we only got one (direct to Netflix found footage flick Mockingbird. Not bad at all). I always wondered why this was. The guy can make cool movies and has a style that I dig. Well for those of us with Direct TV we can stop wondering and start watching! Bryan Bertino’s next flick The Monster (formerly titled There Are Monsters) is available on VOD via Direct TV starting today. For the rest of us we got to wait until November 11th when it hits theaters and VOD. Check out the trailer below and stay tuned for a full review.

PLOT: Acclaimed horror filmmaker Bryan Bertino (The Strangers) directs this suspenseful and scary new film, in which a divorced mother (Zoe Kazan) and her headstrong daughter must make an emergency late night road trip to see the girl’s father.  As they drive through deserted country roads on a stormy night, they suddenly have a startling collision that leaves them shaken but not seriously hurt.  Their car, however, is dead, and as they try in vain to get help, they come to realize they are not alone on these desolate backroads – a terrifying evil is lurking in the surrounding woods, intent on never letting them leave…
