Overview

The Monster Project explores the cryptozoological Horror theme with a simplified visual narrative, found footage. Using this film technique enables the spectator to become a constituent of the evolving circumstances. Instead of adhering to a fixed presentation viewers are behind the camera or through the perceptions of the lead. Found Footage films are best characterized as a contemporary method to conveying Horror. Some Horror enthusiasts welcome this visual art form,
others loathe it.

The Monster Project will release in August 2017 via distribution by Epic Pictures.

First Impressions

The writing team offers a fascinating premise and a set-up that entertains ludicrousness and cliches. Viewers can gauge the conclusions from the trailer. Presented is a sequence of cuts showing a group of aspiring filmmakers trying to secure the next significant idea. In the film, these filmmakers devise a scheme to interview real monsters at a creepy locale during a lunar eclipse. Its uncertain at this stage what The Monster Project plans for, humor or Horror.

There is truth implanted in the narrative. In the late 90’s author by Martin V. Riccardo placed advertisements for real live vampires to submit personal testimony. The contents of the investigation would go into his novel titled Liquid Dreams of Vampires.

The Monster Project includes a good lure for Horror enthusiasts but infusing cliches such as setting and mood has the film fall flat. Replace the cabin in the woods with a stronger, persuasive backdrop. Do away with unnecessary shenanigans and focus on mood and emotional content.

According to the press release the film is;

….a chilling and inventive take on the classic monster movie genre

Based on the trailer common found footage set ups and cues make themselves known. It will be no surprise if mundane action and dialogue drag across Act I and Act II. The intense footage in the trailer will most likely happen during the latter part of Act III. To add a touch of authenticity The Monster Project presents footage in a greenish color overlay. This is a tint seen on most paranormal themed television shows. This color implies night vision equipment recorded the course of events.

One highlight seen in the trailer is the practical and special effects. It will interest most to examine how the vampire, demon, and Skinwalker appear onscreen. Stay tuned to DecayMag for our full review for The Monster Project.
