Monsters (UK-2010; dir. Gareth Edwards)
Gareth Edwards’ Monsters project has been shrouded in mystery. Now, on the brink of its premiere showing at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas during March, a clip has appeared, along with the above image that suggests the “monsters” may be giant alien octopi. Let’s hope so. Excellent!
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 lifeforms 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 agrees to escort a shaken tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border.

About the Director:
Creating BAFTA award-winning and Emmy-nominated visual effects entirely from his bedroom, Gareth Edwards has always pushed the boundaries of filmmaking. Starting out as a VFX creator, he recently broke new ground directing the epic drama Attila the Hun for the BBC, creating all the 250 visual effects by himself. Winning the SciFi Channel’s 48-hour film contest led to Monsters, his feature film debut. (SXSW.com)
