I Think I Know What It's About
28 August 2005 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

I see Bob The Moo was genuinely chilled by this little shocker and I defy anyone not to feel a little shaken by MONSTERS . But I feel many , many people ( Bob included ) may have misunderstood what writer/director Robert Morgan is trying to say . I personally believe that Mr Morgan is pointing out the link between children being cruel to animals and growing up to be serial killers . Jeffry Dahmer would would kill and dissect animals as a boy while notorious child killer Mary Bell would write her name on pavements in the blood of pigeons , hence we see young Stan's dreams of ducks heads scattered around the lawns and the scene outside the rabbit hutch . What we are witnessing are the symptoms of someone who will grow up to be a very serious danger to society in a few short years

That's what MONSTERS means to me even though I confess I maybe mistaken by my conclusions . But I'm sure we can all agree that despite being well made on a technical level ( The editing is excellent ) narrative wise it's very disconcerting and unpleasant and contains unlikable characters . It also lacks any type of cleverness that makes a short film standout
