Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: If this is what the British director can achieve on a shoestring, one can only look forward to what a bigger budget may bring with monster expectation.

- Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Fresh: Edwards is a wizard with his laptop's effects program. The squiddy things he conjures up look like the real deal - thoroughly creepy and a gazillion feet tall.

- Bob Mondello, NPR, Friday, October 29, 2010

Fresh: Monsters is far from perfect, but as a calling card for a rising young talent, it's impressive.

- Cary Darling, Dallas Morning News, Thursday, November 4, 2010

If you want to see what can be accomplished with some dedication, a low budget and just a decent idea. Here you go! A solid sci fi picture.

A rare mix of romance, horror, and sci-fi that is both welcome and keeps you hooked throughout.
