SXSW ’10: The Creatures Cannot Be Contained in ‘Monsters’

The one film I’m dying to see at this month’s SXSW Film Festival is Gareth Edwards’ Monsters, the latest genre effort from UK distributor Vertigo Films (the company behind The Children and Bronson). Details have been extremely vague teasing aliens and infection. We did a little digging and finally discovered a detail heavy synopsis. Check it out inside and watch for our reviews from the fest.6 years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system.

A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after new life forms began to appear there and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE.

Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain “the creatures”…

The story begins when a US journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border.
