Extra Info

It’s around the age of 5-6 that we’re most worried about the monsters under our beds. Beyond that, children generally move on as they gear towards an adult life with far greater concerns such as love, a career or… cancer. Or all three combined, like in the case of Laura (Melissa Barrera, SCREAM V & VI, ABIGAIL), a young up-and-comer prepped up by her boyfriend Jacob for her big breakthrough as the main star of his Broadway musical. Except, she’s diagnosed with cancer and just as quickly dropped by her sleaze-bag ex-sweetheart. She powerhouses through the whole ordeal and is actually cured of cancer – hurray! – but both her love life and her professional career are in shatters – boo! So, she decides to retreat to her parent’s empty house to cry herself to sleep incessantly on her childhood bed. Which quickly gets on the nerves of the only other inhabitant, the Monster under her bed, who tells – nay, roars at her to beat it, or else! Ever since she left and her parents died, he’s got the place to himself. And he’s not too keen on sharing it with a weepy little woman-child… Caroline Lindy actually went through all of the same shit as Laura – the blooming career, the cancer, the dirtbag boyfriend who abandons her in her hour of need – but still managed to prevent her own resentment to spill too much bitterness into her debut feature. Oh, don’t get us wrong, there’s plenty of bite to YOUR MONSTER, and even a dash of blood, but its clawed paws stay firmly within the domain of the quirky, offbeat romantic comedy. Like a New York hipster update of – Disney’s or Jean Cocteau’s, take your pick – BEAUTY AND THE BEAST.
