A monstrously overlooked creature feature corners its terrified prey while streaming
Horror is one of the most popular genres that cinema has to offer, and for good reason, no matter how you prefer to tell your scary stories. However, almost everyone has a soft spot for a good old-fashioned creature feature, which makes it all the more amazing that an acclaimed film be named literally The monster flew so far under the radar that no one even noticed it was there.
The film was shot in the summer of 2015, but audiences were not able to see the final product until October of the following year. Even then, a very limited theatrical run could only bring in around $75,000 at the box office with a production cost of $3 million, while not terribly impacting Gorehounds consciousness everywhere once it was made available on-demand.
Which is a shame, because a Certified Fresh Rotten Tomatoes score of 80 percent paints a picture of a hidden gem to uncover, which at least finally happened in streaming this weekend. According to FlixPatrol, The monster has emerged from obscurity to earn a spot in iTunes’ global rankings, which is the least it deserves.
Zoe Kazan plays a recently divorced woman who takes her young daughter on a late night road trip to visit the girl’s father when they get into a car accident that leaves them dazed and confused. The bad news for her is that her car is pretty much broken and a trip into the night to seek help puts her squarely in the crosshairs of a ravenous beast, forcing her into a fight for her life. It’s gripping, unforgiving, and definitely worth tracking down.
