The second trailer for Gareth Edwards’ low budget horror flick Monsters has debuted online. The film has been generating a lot of buzz after appearing at various festivals and now it’s trying to capture the attention of mainstream audiences. The film stars Whitney Able and Scoot McNairy and is scheduled to hit theaters on October 29th (just in time for Halloween). Check out the new trailer for Monsters now…
The story centers on a jaded US journalist (McNairy) who agrees to find his boss’ daughter, a shaken American tourist (Able) and escort her through the infected zone to the safety of the US border. The area in question is home to another species, an alien species of giant monsters to be exact. They’re the result of a space probe that crashed upon re-entry into the Earth’s atmosphere over Central America.
The movie has a very gritty vibe to it. There are a lot of practical effects and you barely see the aliens/”monsters” that are blatantly referred to in the title, which is great. We don’t want the entire movie spoiled for us before we see it. Keep them covered!
