Erin and sister Sarah travel to Japan to do interviews about global warming. However, on the 1st day of said interviews Tokyo suffers a horrendous earthquake and as they take cover, they soon discover the rumbling is caused by something quite different. The video shown documents their desperate attempt to escape while filming the events befalling them as it happens. What follows is their shaky hand-held footage that appears to have been recovered and presumably posted posthumously for all to see on the internet. Written by

So were down-town Tokyo, we just went through an earthquake magnitude 7.8. The earthquake happened a little north of the city. I don't know, we're just running.
Sarah, what are you doing, we have to get out of here.
We're doing the story.
The story. Sarah I'm sorry, the story is over.
The earthquake is the story, we have to document this.

Despite it being from the notorious The Asylum, there was something about the idea that intrigued me into seeing Monster. Unfortunately the execution is just diabolical. If there is one redeeming quality it is the cute and decent turn from Erin Evans. That however is it. The fact that it looks cheap doesn't help matters in the slightest, the effects are artificial and overused and the scenery is dully lit, but the worst asset was by far the camera work. The hand-held camera technique I am not a fan of, at times it is effective, but it wasn't here, not only because it gave you a seasick notion but it was also used far too much. The script feels constantly stilted and aimless, and the characters have no likability or credibility. The title monster is incredibly bland to the point of being nondescript, and the acting with the exception of Evans doesn't feel like acting, nobody seemed to be scared or even bothered about their surroundings and predicaments. The story is the worst asset, with sluggish pacing, very thin, repetitive and extremely dull storytelling, an ending that is so abrupt that you swear the film wasn't even resolved and many ridiculous scenes like with the fireballs and a line about an earthquake and then you hear a distinct roar afterwards. Overall, Monster is awful and if it didn't have Evans it would have been irredeemable. 1/10 Bethany Cox
