This mix of fantastical whimsy and stark political critique, like the monster, doesn't always coalesce into perfect union. But man, once it gets going, it's a complete blast.

Let's start by saying Monstrum is very silly, very gory, and as long as you put your brain on "entertainment mode" and don't expect this to be remotely as good as Bong Joon-ho's The Host, you'll have a swell time.
