Well,Cant say they JUMP THE SHARK !

MONSTER www.Theasylum.cc with Sarah Lieving Okay, Lets get over the CLOVERFIELD connection, Move on nothing to see here. Got into the rhythm of MONSTER , By thinking it was like that BIGFOOT footage that has made the rounds. Makes one feel you are there and therefore its as real as your mind would allow.

Even the credits are done as if a REAL documentary, That's a stretch that may / may not pay off.

Lots of plugs for YOUTUBE, Guess this counts as another one. So, How did the camera battery last for 90 minutes let alone the days they supposedly filmed ? Great cover art and the few, Very few scenes of creature. The leads were really good, Considering they had to carry the films as Scared Talking Heads. Its funny to think most of it was actually filmed in Japan, Money could have been used to show the MONSTER some more.
