MONSTERS contest: Win a cool shirt + Blu-rays of LET THE RIGHT ONE IN, THE HOST and THE SIGNAL!
. . In honor of MONSTERS premiering (released September 24) on iTunes, VOD, XBOX, Playstation and Amazon.com, we would like to offer our readers a MONSTERS prize pack including a MONSTERS t-shirt (pictured above) and blu-ray copies of Magnolia titles: LET THE RIGHT ONE IN, THE HOST and THE SIGNAL! The breakout hit of this year’s SXSW, Gareth Edwards’ groundbreaking new film (also a selection at the 2010 Los Angeles Film Festival) is as much a poignant contemporary romance as it is an epic science fiction adventure. Shot with just a five person crew and a cast of two, Gareth Edwards’ team traveled through Guatemala, Belize and Mexico, finding and utilizing their locations and supporting actors as they went. The result is a film as cutting edge as it is classically composed, as emotionally satisfying as it is visually stunning, and the bold announcement of a major new talent. Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear and grow. In an effort to stem the destruction that resulted, half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain the massive creatures... Our story begins when a jaded US journalist (McNairy) begrudgingly agrees to find his bosses daughter, a shaken American tourist (Able) and escort her through the infected zone to the safety of the US border.
