One of my favorite festival movies of 2017 was the fear-stutter sounding Mon Mon Mon Monsters!, which screened at Abertoir Film Festival as well as Fantasia. The Taiwanese creature feature that plays like Let The Right One In meets The Bowers Gang from It, has one last big screenplay this weekend in Toronto as part of Colin Geddes’ KINOVORTEX. After the Premiere screening, the movie makes the jump to VOD as an exclusive to Shudder in the US, Canada & UK on March 29. Take a look below at some of the creepy moments and if you are in Ontario be sure to make your way to the TIFF Bell Lightbox at 10PM this Saturday.
“Looking for acceptance, a wimpy high-schooler is drawn into a group of handsome but borderline-sociopathic boys who constantly berate and abuse him. While “helping” seniors in a rundown tenement building, the troublemaking teens and their reluctant tagalong encounter a ravenous she-monster that has been preying on vagrants. Combining moral complexity with show-stopping scenes of bloodshed, the sophomore feature by Taiwanese director Giddens Ko will have you rooting for the sharp-toothed beasts over any of the human characters.”
