New Clip from Gareth Edwards' Monsters
09.29.10 by BJSprecher
A new clip from British filmmaker Gareth Edwards' indie sci-fi movie, Monsters, has been released. Produced for just $500,000—with Edwards serving as writer, director, director of photography, and visual effects designer—the little independent monster movie was a big hit when it debuted at the L.A. Film Festival and has been generating considerable buzz ever since. The movie takes place in a near-future world in which spores unwittingly deposited on Earth by a NASA space probe have grown into gigantic octopus-like monsters. Unable to eradicate them, the military ends up sealing off the "infected zone" the creatures inhabit, which happens to encompass most of Mexico.
In this clip, a photojournalist (played by Scoot McNairy) attempts to secure passage for the daughter (Whitney Able) of his publisher on a ferry that would take her around the infected zone and return her to America. But, when the price is too high, he opts to take her through the infected zone, a decision that he will surely come to regret.
