If ever there was a film as a metaphor its this one – Gareth Edwards MONSTERS asks his audience to accept understanding over hostility in this quarantined alien invasion film. Its a film that could be labelled as science fiction when really its a contemporary commentary on prejudice amidst a climate of fear, terror and misunderstanding. I don’t want to spend too much time pulling apart the plot points or the pro’s and cons of this little low budget gem but I do want to say that if you haven’t seen it do yourself the favour – the emotional pay off alone is worth the viewing.
My thanks to Dan Wilson for reminding me on how good this film is. This is really something special.
MONSTERS is out now on DVD and Download through MADMAN ENTERTAINMENT.
