So intense is Theron's acting that she changes the film itself. From the start her performance is pungent, but we feel at first-about the picture as a whole-a sense of reportage.

Quite possibly the worst asylum movie ever.

A fine start does not help Monster stay afloat, and the movie ends as just another stinky little rip-off.

I laughed, I cried, I think I even held a razor to my wrist at one point...

Audience Reviews for Monster

Monster is another obvious asylum rip-off. This time they've made their own take on Cloverfield which I absolutely loved. Each Asylum film I have watched has garned a certified "rotten" rating from me. The highest being Transmorphers at 40% still certifying it "rotten". Monster is the most boring, badly made, kill yourself before finishing movie I have ever seen The Asylum attempt to create.

Absolute bilge. Avoid like the plague.

Obligatory rip-off of Cloverfield by Asylum who brought you alot of other rip offs collecting dust on the shelves at your local video store: Transmorphers, Alien Vs Hunter, I Am Omega and most recently, Allan Quatermain and the Temple of Skulls. Two sisters travel to Japan to make a documentary on global warming when an octopus monster (I think. It's never really seen.) shows up and tears up Japan. Not surprisingly it's not any good and it even gives Sci-Fi channel movies a run for their money.
