MONSTROUS REVIEW

 


A terrifying new horror awaits Laura and her seven-year old son Cody when they flee her abusive ex-husband and try to settle into a new life in an idyllic and remote lakeside farmhouse. Still traumatized, their physical and mental well-being are pushed to the limit as their fragile existence is threatened.


Starring: Christina Ricci, Colleen Camp, and Santino Bernard


Directed by: Chris Siverston

 

Written by: Carol Chrest


  Something “Monstrous” is lurking, and it’s not going to lead to a happy ending. Laura (Christina Ricci) and her son Cody (Collen Camp) are on the move to a new home. Laura has rented a new home by a lake, and is set on starting a new life with her son. She’s happy to be there, and tries to get them settled in as best as she can. 

  On the other hand, Cody isn’t exactly excited about this. He’s another kid that doesn’t understand why they had to move, and wants to go back. Unfortunately, this isn’t possible because they’re running away from his father who apparently has been abusive. Cody goes along with what his mother says until he starts to believe there’s a lady in the lake. A monstrous lady in the lake that is about to come in-between mom, and son!

  For a movie called “Monstrous” it’s extremely bright and colorful for a least the first half of the film. The audience won’t be able to miss the brightness even though something mysterious is going on here. Even Laura is as cheery as the film is bright. She’s especially happy and polite with everyone to start. It does everything to embrace the 50’s setting, including a nice creature feature scene that Laura watches, and becomes apart of.

  Once Cody insists on there being a lady is the lake things start to unravel. Laura’s no longer so nice with people, and even struggles not getting too rough with Cody. She continues to tell him to do things that he doesn’t want to do. There are some odd moments with Cody and his classmates that are going to be a clue for things to come. It’s a little surprising how creepy those scenes are because they seem like such a typical moments.

  While those moments are good, the audience will be more interested in the scenes between Cody and the lady in the lake. They’re weird and mysterious, but never get too monstrous. The true horror turns out to be the abuse, mental stress, and struggling relationship between mother and son. Hence, why the film goes from happy and bright to dark and strange. Things will be topped off with a twist, which may or may not work for everyone. With that, I give “Monstrous” 3 pools of blood.

THE CELLAR REVIEW

 


Keira Woods’ daughter mysteriously vanishes in the cellar of their new home. She soon discovers there is an ancient and powerful entity controlling their home that she will have to face or risk losing her family’s souls forever. 


Starring: Elisha Cuthbert, Eoin Macken, and Dylan Fitzmaurice


Directed and written by: Brendan Muldowney


  “The Cellar” is definitely not a place anyone wants to get trapped in. The Woods family has just moved into a new home, and not everyone is excited about it. Daughter Ellie (Abby Fitz) isn’t a fan, especially after briefly getting stuck in the cellar. She voices further frustration about being there, and then having to babysit her younger brother Steven (Dylan Fitzmaurice).

  Looks like mom and dad, Keira (Elisha Cuthbert) and Brian Woods (Eoin Macken), should have listened to her. While away at a business meeting, Ellie ends up in the cellar again, and this time she won’t be coming out. She calls her mom while in the cellar, and ends the call in a weird way. By the time Keira and Brian make it home there is no sign of Ellie. Keira takes it upon herself to figure out what has happened to her daughter before it happens to the rest of the family.



  After the disappearance takes place the film gives the audience a mystery to solve. Keira must figure out what’s going on, and it starts off slow. Police are involved, but this is soon not going to be a case the police can solve. Keira isn’t going to get as much help as she would like from her husband either. He’s going to need some more convincing that something supernatural is happening and they’re about to get it.

  The film will move slowly presenting the supernatural presence, and unfolding the creepiness of the house. The cellar is definitely going to be at center stage along with an intense trick involving counting numbers. If someone freezes, and begins a countdown it means something evil is happening. Ellie certainly excelled at this before her disappearance in one of the film’s most important moments.



  “The Cellar” begins as a film with the big mystery of Ellie’s disappearance. Keira will eventually run out of reasonable options to why Ellie is gone, and have to dig into strange symbols and the house’s history. It’s a little odd that the father and son don’t play a bigger role, but it allows Elisha Cuthbert a chance to shine in her role. There will be some creepy moments, and it will make counting numbers a haunting experience. The film will end in a way I generally appreciate, so with that I give it 3 pools of blood!
