The Monster ★½

Part of Schlocktober 2017

Fuck... I really should have listened to the Letterboxd community and just given this one a miss. I found The Strangers quite effective at the time so I was keen to see what Bryan Bertino would come up with here.

The cinematography is solid but apart from that, this is a dull, missed opportunity. Zoe Kazan is always good but here, she's unlikable as hell. I love practical creature effects too so this was a triple-bummer.
