A while back the Backbrain reported on a monster movie that utilises the currently popular technique of “found footage” to tell its story of rampage and terror — this one not in a city, it seems, but more backwoods/small town-oriented. A conspiracy element runs through the movie, as the concept tells of deliberate suppression of the truth, which the compilation — made up of amateur footage comprising eight rolls of “badly damaged 16mm film” taken by some buddies on an end-of-summer vacation — purports to expose.
Monster Movie was co-director John Polonia’s final film before he died on 25 February at age 39.
Monster Movie (US-2008; dir. Mark and John Polonia)
The tale involves giant prehistoric reptiles and yes, apparently the town gets trashed!
Kaiju Search-Robot Avery has managed to obtain some pictures of one of the monsters from Tempe Entertainment, who are releasing the film on DVD come 16th of September.
