The monsters didn't have to be big to get my attention. Sure, Godzilla, King Kong, and the occasional giant lizard grown to stupendous size thanks to exposure to toxic waste were grand, but even the haphazard Bigfoot knock off captured my imagination. Dracula, the Wolfman, and the Creature from the Black Lagoon deserved my attention as much of those lurking behemoths; and I was only all too happy to provide it when the adventure looked grand in the adverts.
So it is with great pleasure I'm happy to promote Monstrum. Coming soon to home video via Shudder and RLJE Films, Monstrum looks pretty damn spiffy ... if I do say so myself. The preview is below, and you'll find the upcoming release information just beyond that.
MONSTRUM stars Hyeri Lee (“Hyde, Jekyll, Me”), In-kwon Kim (C’est Si Bon), Myung-Min Kim (Closer to Heaven) and Woo-sik Choi (Parasite). The film was directed by Jong-ho Huh (Countdown, The Advocate: A Missing Body), who co-wrote the film with Heo-dam. RLJE Films will release MONSTRUM on DVD for an SRP of $27.97 and Blu-ray for an SRP of $28.96.
In MONSTRUM, a plague has taken over and fear runs rampant in the streets. When rumors of a vicious monster roaming Mount Inwangsan begin to spread, fear turns into panic. In order to quell the rising hysteria, the King brings his most trusted general out of retirement. Joined by his daughter, his right-hand man, and a royal court officer, the general sets out to find and defeat the mysterious creature.
