Epic Pictures and DREAD deliver hilarious comic hysteria and buckets of blood, and more buckets of blood, with Book of Monsters, starring Lyndsey Craine and Lizzie Stanton. With a bit of morbid fun, Director Stewart Sparke has put together a crazy fun horror flick about monsters crashing an 18-year-old’s party.
Sophie (Lyndsey Craine)’s 18th birthday becomes a bloodbath when monsters descend upon her house, devouring the guests and killing anyone who tries to leave. To survive the night, Sophie must face her destiny: monsters are real and she’s the only one who can stop them.
Here are 5 reasons why you should see Book of Monsters:
5) Lyndsey Craine!
I am proudly going to gush over this wonderful cast, starting with with the incredible Lyndsey Craine. As the social awkward Sophie, Craine engages the audience as she perfectly balances the drama and comedy of high school life. As Sophie gradually reclaims her confidence, Craine heartwarmingly portrays a shy teen who truly misses her mother.
4) Michaela Longden!
Full of energy and wit, Michaela Longden is just spectacular to watch as Mona. I’m not going to say how, that’s spoiler territory unfortunately, but Londgen is simply phenomenal at portraying two different sides of the same character. Notice how Longden is able to show Mona’s bad side with just a sly smirk.
3) Lizzie Aaryn-Stanton!
Capturing the look and attitude, Lizzie Aaryn-Stanton is able to give so much personality and charm as goth girl Beth. Each member of the ensemble cast has been able to breathe toughness to their character. I was absolutely rooting for Beth, Mona, and Sophie teaming-up to fight against the monsters.
2) Rose Muirhead!
As Jess, Rose Muirhead adds to group chemistry with her own engaging charisma. I loved seeing the relationship between Jess (Muirhead) and Sophie (Craine) grow organically onscreen. The movie stands out because Paul Butler’s script cleverly lays in a great message about empowerment.
1) A Monster-Fest!
Full of impressive performances and solid direction, Book of Monsters combines monster horror and teen comedy with a fun twist! Very entertaining from start to finish, Book of Monsters even hits the landing with a great ending!
Book of Monsters arrives March 19th, 2019.
