Storyline

There Are Monsters is a feature length horror based upon the apocalyptic premise that the world is being taken over -slowly, quietly and efficiently- by creatures that look exactly like us. The story follows a graduate-student film crew who, on a work-related road trip, discover evidence of these doppelgangers. Soon the crew realizes something is very wrong as the world changes before their eyes, and their cameras. Shot in a documentary style, the film is a tense, realistic journey into a terrifying urban landscape. Written by Anonymous

Started strong then took a nose dive

A simple but creepy concept had me intrigued by this movie as soon as I saw the trailer. It had a lot of potential but I couldn't help but to be taken out of the movie by the way it was shot.

They chose to make a 'found footage' or documentary style movie, which can be great if they are done right. However the super consistent use of blurry, shaky, close up shots flying all over the screen made it pretty difficult to watch.

Also, if everything is meant to be shot by these student filmmaker characters, keep it that way throughout the entire film. So many times a character would go off on their own or we could clearly see the characters weren't filming anymore, yet we saw everything through the same style of close up, shaky, multiple camera footage as if they were still shooting. It just annoyed me and I grew bored watching. If you want to see a really good found footage film, watch Cloverfield.
