Monsters Gareth EdwardsTo celebrate the release of MONSTERS on DVD & Blu-Ray on April 11. Jameson Cult Film Club are hosting a very special screening of MONSTERS.

It makes perfect sense, now that I see it in front of me. Gareth Edwards a super talented film-maker, his film Monsters a creature feature that's more about humans than creatures - that has captured the imagination of audiences worldwide and The Jameson Cult Film Club. Of course it's a perfect fit.

After JCFC championed Moon (a film set on the Moon, with robots but is actually about humanity) and screened it at the off world like Royal Institution. It makes perfect sense that the JCFC are again championing a relatively small independent future cult classic - Monsters.

If you are a regular reader you know I am a fan of the super talented Gareth Edwards and his ingenious Monsters you also know that Monsters is a A+, 5 star recommendation that perfectly captures the spirit of Cult Film.

Monsters is a great choice of films again bringing to the fore how Jameson are committed to championing good cinema. I can also say with certainty - those lucky enough to get tickets to the screening are in for a treat - the location of the Monsters screening is an absolutely inspired choice. You need to see this place to believe it! In fact if you don't get tickets to Monsters I highly recommend that you try got on one of the guided tours of the Hunterian Museum at The Royal College of Surgeons of England at your convenience.

"Jameson Cult Film Club is back in action and coming to London on March 3rd with an all too realistic screening of Gareth Edwards’ critically acclaimed film, MONSTERS. We suggest you bring your gas mask, travel documents, and courage. Lots of courage.

Visitors to the quarantined zone will experience Gareth Edwards' critically acclaimed film, plus a Q&A session with the BAFTA nominated director himself, as our future cult prediction is brought to life in true Jameson Cult Film Club style! Pick up a complimentary Jameson cocktail at the bar as you pass into the undergrowth and head deeper into the Infected Zone."

So if you haven't seen Monsters yet or are fan keen to see it again with fellow aficionados and discuss it over a drink - the JCFC are offering you the opportunity to see it by heading over to the Jameson Cult Film Club Box Office and signing up for free tickets now.

It is probably worth noting that if you haven't been to a JCFC screening - it is not just a film screening it is an immersive experience that brings you closer to the film - those faint of heart may wish to bring their comfort blankets or a suitable +1.

Monsters - 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 half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain the creatures ... Our story begins when a U.S. journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through the infected zone to the safety of the U.S. border.
