The Monster Trailer: From the Director of The Strangers


If you’re looking for a new monster movie to watch this Halloween and you happen to have DirecTV, then this next one might be for you. The Monster is the latest film from director Bryan Bertino, best known for the 2008 home invasion flick The Strangers. The story revolves around a divorced mother (Zoe Kasan) and her daughter (Ella Ballentine) who find themselves in a car accident on a deserted country road in the middle of a storm. Although they are not seriously injured, they soon realize that there is an even greater danger lurking in the surrounding woods. The trailer makes it pretty clear that Predator was an influence on this film, although whether it is an homage or straight up rip-off remains to be seen. The Monster is currently available on DirecTV and hits select theatres and VOD on Nov. 11th. Check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    Watched it tonight, to be honest it’s pretty average. Not terrible, but not really anything to write home about.
