An engaging movie made for fans of the goose-bumps, titillation, and fun of horror movies
23 November 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

"The Attack of the Morningside Monster" is the pleasing product of an independent film crew with a healthy mixture of professionals and working people who love this genre and movies in general, so any fair and astute reviewer needs to keep this in mind. The producers make the most of a small budget, and a lot of preparation and intelligence went into planning and production.

The story has several layers and is a mystery/horror combination which forces you to pay attention if you want to solve it, otherwise the 'fake outs' will 'getcha,' Several of the leads are appealing and charismatic and fit in nicely here. It seems a must that this genre contain some flesh and gore, but neither is too much especially in comparison to what is seen today. The homages, intentional or merely suggested, to various films like I believe "Pulp Fiction" and "Silence of the Lambs," among others, are funny.

This movie is refreshing in several ways, starting with the fact that it's not a $200 million production and is therefore not too slick. Overall this is an engaging movie made by people who enjoy the goose-bumps, titillation, and fun of campy horror movies and have made their own nice contribution to this type of movie. See it with some mature friends and have some laughs and get a little scared at the same time.
