Before visionary Gareth Edward’s Godzilla and Star Wars: Rogue One – there was MONSTERS.
In Edwards’ directorial debut – not only does he carry the credits of writer and director, he’s also MONSTERS’ director of photography, production designer and, crucially, visual-effects supervisor.
Certified ‘fresh’ on Rotten Tomatoes, MONSTERS premiered its theatrical run as an Official Selection: SXSW Film Festival 2010 followed by Los Angeles Film Festival.

Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear there and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain “the creatures”… Our story begins when a US journalist (SCOOT MCNAIRY) agrees to escort a shaken American tourist (WHITNEY ABLE) through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border.
