The Establishing Shot: Monsters Andrew Kaulder's Flickr stream

Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Friday, November 12, 2010

MONSTERS, Gareth Edwards Gareth Edwards' Monsters will be released on the UK big screen on December 3. I was lucky enough to catch an early preview of it at this year's FrightFest as well as hear Gareth talk about the making of Monsters at both Empire's Moviecon and the aforementioned screening.

I'm a fan of the super talented Gareth Edwards and loved Monsters. Comparisons have been drawn to District 9 because of it's super low budget and minimal production, but I felt the tale has a lot more in common with Cloverfield.

Even though Gareth has said that Monsters is "part sci-fi, part romance, part road movie" you will get a lot more out of it if you go into the cinema not expecting District 9, Cloverfield or any other special FX laden extravaganza. Although Gareth is a FX wizard the magic of Monsters is that it is a quiet, understated character film set in the near future.

I particularly liked the match up of visuals with the haunting soundtrack as well as romantic play between the two lead characters. Scoot McNairy and Whitney Able are married in real life so the chemistry between them is spot on.

As soon as I get some time I'll throw up a full review as well as some clips of Gareth Edwards talking about making Monsters in the meantime - I have serendipitously stumbled across Andrew Kaulder's Flickr stream. Andrew Kaulder is the male lead character from Monsters played by Scoot McNairy.

Hi Mom!

Not sure if this is the best sign

If you have already seen Monsters these are presumably some of the photos Kaulder is seeing taking throughout the film. This is a nice understated touch of marketing and it compliments the general feel of Monsters. His full photostream can be found here:
