During a jaunt through the woods a few weeks before their senior year of high school, Eleanor and her friends find a mysterious wooden box. As the days pass, unexplainable things begin to happen. Any item put in the box disappears. Wishes, or something resembling wishes, start getting granted. People outside of the group begin disappearing. They begin finding messages in books and magazines; messages that suggest something far more sinister may be at work. When a car shows up in front of Banks' house, and they get a strange phone call from a phone located inside the console, Eleanor and Banks begin to panic. Eleanor and Zoe try to suggest to their friends the box may not be the blessing they think it is, but Ainsley, Zach, and Lisa ignore their pleas to get rid of the box. When her friends begin to disappear, Eleanor realizes she has to stop whatever is literally tearing her friends apart. The Many Monsters of Sadness is a light hearted film that takes a turn towards darkness, ... Written by Motke Dapp

great story
12 October 2012 | by deuce-329-48070See all my reviews

This was a wonderful storyline with an ending that was far from predictable. The cast is full of fresh new talent that bring fun and engaging characters to life.

This is an awesome take on exploring a fundamental emotion in all of us, and how it can begin to rear its head in many different ways based on individual personalities.

This flick contains just the right amount of comedy, drama, and thrills to blend seamlessly together.

I will definitely recommend this movie to others and cannot wait to see future works from the cast and crew.
