Movie Info

Where do you get those brilliant ideas? A question which plagues all creators. They say success comes with a price, but for the story of Mitch Stockridge, an author of self-help books, that price feeds a bigger monster inside of us all. Into the stressful depths of the creative mind, the lengths that one goes through for success, and the anxiety to keep on producing while on top.

Critic Reviews for A Brilliant Monster

All Critics (5) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (1)

  • A no-budget horror comedy that occasionally rises to "clever," but falls well short of "Brilliant."

    February 10, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • On the plus side, this was a watchable movie by any definition. Engaging story of a man selling his soul for success by way of a nasty monster...

    June 25, 2018 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…
  • A metaphor rich, character driven horror-drama that is both relevant and thought provoking.

    June 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A Brilliant Monster is a cut above many creaky low-budget under-the-radar indies. It's confident and genuinely cinematic despite its apparent lack of visual ambition and it's shot through with jet black humour.

  • There is certainly a lot to admire in A Brilliant Monster, with its stellar cast and stirring directing. But the rich visuals don't overcome the story's shortcomings, with the film being rendered confusing and pointless at the end.
