I’m really interested in the upsurge of high quality low budget films that have been released over the last few years. Monsters is another great example of that. Rather than focusing on big effects budgets or guys running round in bad monster suits it returns to the “less is more” approach. There is more suspense in the sound of something moving in the tree line than seeing an animated monster jumping around. What’s more, in the good examples, the lack of big budgets generally means they focus more on the characters which gives the film more impact as well.
It’s not a horror flick. It’s not a sci-fi flick. It’s more of a road trip movie, if you can count boats and hiking through jungles as a road trip.
Anyway, I liked it. More please. 🙂
