Stuart Gillard, director of Avalon High, Hatching Pete, Riverworld, Kart Racer, The Initiation of Sarah, The Scream Team, and Taking Liberty, delivers Girl vs. Monster.

The acting was suspect and the cast includes Olivia Holt, Kerris Dorsey, Brendan Myer, and Katherine McNarma.
"I'm smart and confident."
"You're stupid and weak."
I recently came across this on Netflix and had to add it to the queue as a good movie for my daughter and I to watch together. She found it fun for the most part and watched it from beginning to end. This is definitely a below average addition to the genre and only worth watching if nothing else is on.
"You know what I learned about fear? When you run away from it, it just gets worse."
