Bloody has the first images and poster art for the indie Monster, from director Matt Shaw, which is based on the Amazon bestselling book of the same name.
The feature film is said to be a cross between The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Natural Born Killers that explores the theme of nature versus nurture.
“Emily is tired of her life. In a dead-end job that she hates and an employer who takes advantage of her, she dreams of a life away from the daily grind. Her life will take an unexpected turn, however when she is snatched from work and bundled into a van. She awakes later in the isolated Remington home, a place of death and violence where depravity and horror are the norm. Led by the fearsome Richard, the undisputed head of the household, Emily discovers that the Remington’s are organizing a very special birthday party and she is the guest of honor.
“When the birthday boy –the Remington’s seven-foot-tall hulk of a son appears, Emily realizes she is more than just a guest and their intentions for her are much more sinister. A tale of harrowing violence and tragedy, Monster reaches new depths of horror and cruelty as Emily fights for her life against a family which know nothing of remorse or compassion. As the story unfolds we discover that some men are born monsters, and others are made as a product of their upbringing.”
It stars Tracy Shaw (Coronation Street), Rod Glenn (American Assassins), Danielle Harold (EastEnders and Fanged Up) and Laura Ellen Wilson.
