The film’s synopsis is:

A terrifying new horror awaits Laura (Christina Ricci) and her seven-year-old son Cody (Santini Barnard) when they flee her abusive ex-husband and try to settle into a new life in an idyllic and remote lakeside farmhouse. Still traumatised, their physical and mental well-being are pushed to the limit as their fragile existence is threatened by something monstrous in the lake….

Director Chris Sivertson describes his film as “A mashup - supernatural horror, ‘50s period piece, family drama, creature feature, psychological thriller - but above all it’s a character study”. He adds:“It’s impossible to talk about Monstrous without talking about the sublime Christina Ricci. A phenomenal performer, she carries the movie on her shoulders every step of the way. She evokes deep empathy for a single mother who’s trying to keep her world from crumbling to pieces”.

Monstrous stars Christina Ricci (Yellowjackets), Colleen Camp (Sliver), Santino Bernard (Penny Dreadful: City of Angels), Don Baldaramos (Suburbicon), and Nick Vallelonga (Green Book)

Monstrous will be available to download from July 11th. You can pre-order on iTunes here.
