    A Monster Calls

    ★★★

    The first thing I want to say is that I really really want to recommend this movie. The first trailer sold me on its concept, its story, and I got it immediately. I wanted to see it in motion. And for the most part it is what it advertises itself to be: A story of a boy who calls upon a monster to help him through a horrifically traumatic event.

    If you don't know the plot, just watch the trailer.…

    The sheer creepiness of a movie like this is the way the characters and setting are portrayed. These kids have nothing to do with the town, they're just passing through. One of them wanders off and is killed immediately. Who is the killer? Even though we see him, we don't know. He's just some crazy guy. No back story, no explanation, no motivations. He's just a psychopath. That's what makes this movie scary.
