MONSTERS (2010 U.K.) D/W: GARETH EDWARDS P: ALLAN NIBLO/JAMES RICHARDSON
In the near future an "infection zone" between the U.S. and Mexico is a no man`s land quarantine, home to tentacled aliens from somewhere that we know nothing about. Photojournalist Scoot McNairy escorts his Editor`s daughter Whitney Able from Central America back across the border. Ignore the title, this remarkable low-budget achievement (shot on-the-go with cheap equipment, and heavily improvised) is an engaging road movie with apocalyptic sci-fi trappings (Edwards` VFX background assures the excellence of these elements). As well as a great watch, an inpiration for aspiring filmakers. Nick Love was an Executive Producer.
