Based on Frank Peretti's graphic novel, Monster tells the story of strange creatures who kidnap a young woman named Beck Shelton, and her husband, Reed Shelton, must seek he guidence of a small town and some old friends to rescue her.
In rural Alabama, two couples find themselves in a fight for survival. Running from a maniac (The Tin Man) bent on killing them, they flee deep into the woods and seek refuge in a house. They soon realize the killer has purposely lured them to this house and that they are now trapped. As they huddle around an old fireplace, a tin can falls through the chimney. Scrawled on its side is a message from the killer, establishing his House Rules. The rules call for their deaths unless they kill at least one of the four. They have less than 12 hours to find a way to survive. At sunrise the game is over and everyone dies if the killer's demands aren't met. What they quickly learn is that the only way out... is in. But going further into this house--where unknown challenges await them--is equally deadly.Written by
In House two couples get stuck in a creepy guest house with a family of freaks, but they discover there's far worse things to worry about than just the buck toothed locals.
House is undeniably creepy to start off with because it's got that same "oh don't go in there" feel to it as a lot of films where the characters wander off the beaten track into the path of some inbred nutjobs. The thing is though there's a whole other supernatural story that doesn't really work too well.
There's nothing very original either so most horror fans will guess the ending by about the two thirds mark and there isn't anything that interesting to watch in the meantime. If you've not seen many horror films or you've seen so many you don't care that what you're watching is a few reheated ideas thrown together then you'll probably enjoy this film.
I thought it was OK but the scenes feel thrown together without a strong story to keep them going and the character of tinman was a bit of a joke whereas by the logic of the film he should have been really scary.
