Awesome Movie! Can't wait to own a copy.
3 December 2018 | by MsAnnabeleSee all my reviews

Read the Book, Loved the Movie, can't wait to buy it & add it to my collection. I've seen it at least 5 times in less than a week, that's how much I loved it ... but then I've always loved Horror and the twisted books written by Matt Shaw and Michael Bray. When they write a book it's pretty awesome. but when they write one together it's even better. So glad one of their books is now a movie and can only hope that more will join the ranks. The dialogue is spot on, and the casting and acting is perfect, Rod Glenn is amazing as Richard. I'm not sure if it's my love of Horror movies (and books) that made me a little bit twisted, or maybe I already was, either way there were a few bits of dialogue (or a scene) where I couldn't help but laugh.

So, you are probably wondering why then didn't I give Monster a full 10 stars? It was because of a couple of scenes where there was moments of time being reflected on where bits and pieces of it was cut into another scene with a strobe-light effect. While it works perfectly for the tale (sort of anyway). I've just never been a fan of it. If it were possible, I would've only deducted a partial point, but the grading system here doesn't allow it ... so, 9 of 10 it is.
