Trailer Alert: Monsters

We in The Basement have heard nothing but good buzz for this, and I (Jay) for one hope we can review it on The X once our show gets rolling this fall.

The premise is simple, and cool: Set six years after huge, Lovecraftian aliens have taken over Mexico, the movie follows two people who must try to get from South America to the US after all the official crossings have been closed. It's mating season for the monsters, and they're on the move and more dangerous than usual.

Writer/director Gareth Edwards is supposed to have made the film for a scant $20,000 to $30,000. To me, it looks better than most big-budget Hollywood productions. Watch the trailer below and judge for yourself.
