Monster is a horror film about the argument between nature and nurture.
It tells the harrowing tale of Richard, Mary and Andrew, a family of three. On the outside, Mary and Richard appear normal and their son, a deformed hulk of a 7ft monster rarely seen. Look closer though and see the true monsters as controlling Richard bullies his family into living the life he wants.
Principal photography for the film has now been completed and an advanced screening will take place at London HorrorCon in June.
