About the Movie
Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon reentry over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear and half of Mexico was quarantined as an infected zone. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain “the creatures”... Our story begins when a U.S. journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through the infected zone to the safety of the U.S. border.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Monsters is part immigration parable, part war allegory with a dose of It Happened One Night and The African Queen tossed in.
Rotten: The most interesting thing here is the budget.
Fresh: A better-than-average debut by a filmmaker who merits watching. Let's hope that he keeps some of his indie spirit when Hollywood comes calling.
Fresh: An astonishing achievement for first-time British feature director Gareth Edwards.
Great sci-fi/giant monster film!
The director Gareth Edwards made this movie on a shoestring budget with only a few crew and cast members. He even did all
the special effects himself! I grew up with Godzilla, Ultraman and other "giant" monsters and superheroes and this movie
does not disappoint! If you loved the gritty, realistic approach to the giant monster genre that "Cloverfield" took, you'll absolutely
love this movie. Great acting, locations and story. Don't miss it!
Beautiful. This movie is not about monsters. It's about a friendship and love. Great atmosphere!
This is a BIG deal!
I guess whoever rates this one star because of the rental price dont really get it. Read the description. Its available to rent BEFORE it comes out in theaters. Thats HUGE!. Considering a movie ticket can go for as much as 9 dollars i dont think this is to bad if i can see it early without leaving the house.
