Matt Reeves directs the “giant monster movie” which is shot using home video cameras from the point of view of real people who are experiencing the attack on New York City
I enjoy big monsters, and am especially fond of giant monsters. I am not sure how many baddies are in this movie, but I hope we get to see a smattering of other-worldy behemoths wreaking havoc upon our tender earth. I want to see tentacles, beaks and truckloads of mucus.
I have been teased well by the marketing campaign and this is certainly one of the films I look forward to in the fresh new year. With a release date of January 18, 2008 we are closing in on monster day and I hope they reward us with a bludgeoning of the senses.
