Matt Shaw's horror, MONSTER now available on Amazon Prime Video.
A Marmite prefix certainly fits the bill when describing Matt Shaw's British horror MONSTER, as it's certainly a sick affair, but nonetheless enjoyable if you like your horror a little on the disgusting side. You could describe it as being of the same ilk as Steven Sheil's MUM & DAD, and it’s definitely a must-see for hard core horror fans.
Written and directed by horror author Matt Shaw, MONSTER stars, Rod Glenn, Tracy Shaw, Laura Ellen Wilson, Danielle Harold, Mike Butler, Clair Buckley, Tony Cook & Mark Cassell.
Matt Shaw says about the movie:
The aim of MONSTER (based on the book of the same name) was to create a horror film which made the viewer a part of the crime. Have them sitting on the edge, watching in but unable to change the course of what was happening on the screen. This was never meant to be a comfortable film.
