There’s something special about a horror movie with one location.
Movies like Night of the Living Dead, Panic Room and Saw all took place in one location and used that to their advantages. Those films use the surroundings to get the characters (and the viewer) the chance to get comfortable and familiar before the horror starts.
A24’s new film ‘The Monster’ is no different. Horror Director Bryan Bertino is best known for 2008 ‘s The Strangers (another great one location horror) so we know he knows how to use one location to his advantage. The plot goes like this, A woman named Kathy (Zoe Kazan) and her daughter Lizzy (Ella Ballentine) are traveling when they swerve to avoid a dog that’s in the middle of the road. They crash and are now stranded on a country road. They discover that the animal they hit isn’t normal and they must fight to survive against a creature.
For those with DIRECTV you can watch The Monster now on demand, for others, the film will be released in theaters on November 11, 2016.
