Low Budget SciFi Romance movie "Monsters" [MNSTS] to be the new "District 9 / Paranormal Activity - ish" revelation !

Posted by: kruger on Oct 25, 19:48

The movie called "Monsters" [MNSTS] is really going to make a killing !

Budget 500 000$ with 15000$ of equipment and a crue of about 10 people in a van driving and shooting accross South America ! It has already gross about a 1 000 000 $ in a few screenings !

Often said it's a rip off from District 9 but it's a mistake, the movie talks about the journey of a woman and a man (romance) in a alien infested zone between the US and Mexico (the SciFi).

Tell me what you think, personally I just think it's going to be awesome. Even though it's not going to be an action packed movie it is one of those movies that take a different approach of a specific style of movie (here the monster movie genre) and does it in a great way that will draw the masses without any difficulties.

Except that it's already on Video on Demand and probably won't go nearly as wide as either movie you cite. {nm}   secretstalker on Oct 25, 19:50

Where did you see it grossing more than a million already? I'm curious, the current value is really low if that's the case. {nm}   lefrench on Oct 27, 06:06

and no offense to anyone here (associated w/ the film), but it was pretty horrible. {nm}   lobogotti on Oct 25, 19:53

Yeah it's on Video On Demand but not everywhere, most of the receipts of movies come from foreign countries, lots don't have the vod version {nm}   kruger on Oct 25, 19:56

Has anyone else seen it? I want to decide whether to watch it on VOD...seemed intriguing but lobogotti's comments make me cautious {nm}   GMov on Oct 25, 20:40

dont go expecting anything like Cloverfield or Jurassic Park. Its more Before Sunrise than a monster flick {nm}   Moviesnob on Oct 26, 07:08

Thanks {nm}   GMov on Oct 26, 07:31

Magnolia has released 132 movies in the last 8 years. Only 23 of them have managed to clear a measly 1M domestic inflation adjusted.   shadowking on Oct 25, 20:14

Who releases more movies: Magnolia or IFC? I know they both do the VOD thing. {nm}   HarryWarden on Oct 25, 21:56

They're about even over the last few years. {nm}   shadowking on Oct 26, 05:24

WTF? MNSTS was released in only 2 theaters? I guess they don't want to make back the money they put into it. {nm}   Kumacho1957 on Nov 01, 12:55
