If you're lucky enough to be attending FrightFest this year you'll get the chance to preview one of the most talked about alien movies since District 9, Gareth Edwards' sensational debut, Monsters. The movie received great praise from Cannes festival earlier on in the year and many have made comparisons between Edwards and small budget extraordinaire Neill Blomkamp.
Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear there and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain 'the creatures'... Our story begins when a US journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border.
