Default Weekly Comp - Monsters - 10/04/2011 - FINISHED

Roar!

Oh yes that's right the Competitions now have their very own section! HORRAY! How very cool.

And the first prize being given away in the new section is...



Hence the opening roar.

For anyone unfamiliar with this excellent, beautiful film, here's some more info:

Label: Vertigo Films
Release date: 11th April 2011
Release type: DVD, Blu-ray
Certificate: 12
Running time: 90 minutes

Pricing: 17.99 (DVD), 19.99 (Blu-ray)
Genre: Sci-fi, Horror
Director: Gareth Edwards
Stars: Scoot McNairy, Whitney Able



"A hugely impressive disaster-come-road movie that conveys almost Spielbergian promise" - Sunday Express.

Following its hugely successful theatrical release that saw it earning Five Star reviews in Empire (“a sci-fi picture which never loses sight of the human factor… an amazing achievement”), Total Film (“the most audacious debut since The Blair Witch Project”), the Financial Times (“a lollapalooza… so edgy it hardly needs monsters… a masterpiece of high-amp anxiety”), the Daily Express (“an intelligent, inventive film… highly recommended”) and the Sunday Mirror (“a road trip blending romance with sci-fi thrills”), the critically acclaimed Monsters comes to DVD and Blu-ray on 11th April 2011 courtesy of Vertigo Films.

The winner of the Best Director, Best Achievement in Production and Best Technical Achievement awards at the 2010 British Independent Film Awards and recently nominated for the BAFTA award for Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer,Monsters was written, shot and directed by Emmy nominated and BAFTA award winning CGI animator Gareth Edwards (Perfect Disasters; Hiroshima), who, for his debut feature, “wanted to make a love story that didn’t make him cringe, as well as a sci-fi movie where the premise wasn’t totally unbelievable.” To say that Edwards more than achieved his goal with Monsters would be something of an understatement.

Described as “a hugely impressive disaster-come-road movie that conveys almost Spielbergian promise” by the Sunday Express and “a horror film that has plenty of heart” by the Sunday Times, Monsters is a beautifully shot and totally absorbing movie boasting extraordinarily strong performances by its two leads, real-life couple Scoot McNairy (In Search Of A Midnight Kiss) and Whitney Able(All The Boys Love Mandy Lane), and featuring incredible visuals and special effects that belie its modest budget.

Soon after a NASA probe sent to collect samples from Jupiter’s moon, Europa, crash-landed in Central America, strange new life forms began to appear in the area forcing half of Mexico to be quarantined as an infected zone. Six years later, US and Mexican military forces are struggling to contain the fully-grown alien creatures and to control their seasonal migration within the zone.

In the midst of the chaos caused by the creatures’ unusually early migration is photojournalist Andrew Kaulder (McNairy), who is hoping to get at least one ‘money shot’ of them in action. But when his publisher boss’ vacationing daughter Sam (Able) is found to be stranded in the area, Kaulder is charged with guaranteeing her secure passage through Mexico to the safety of the US border.

“A post-modern sci-fi… with a hugely involving love story” (The Guardian), the genre-busting Monsters is a “seriously impressive” (Mail on Sunday) and “remarkable piece of work” (The Observer) that will appeal as much to lovers of cool, indie relationship dramas as it will to fans of mainstream horror and sci-fi cinema.

Monsters (cert. 12) will be released on DVD (17.99) and Blu-ray (19.99) by Vertigo Films on 11th April 2011. Special Features include: audio commentary by Gareth Edwards, Scoot McNairy and Whitney Able; Behind the Scenes featurette; Editing Monsters featurette; Monsters VFX featurette; “Factory Farmed” – short film by Gareth Edwards.

How do you win this? Well simply...


"Meow!"

What was that...



OMG! RUN! RUN FOR YOUR LIFE! IT'S THE CUTEST CAT EVER! IT'S A MONSTER! RUNNNNNN!




The world is being attacked! Attacked I say, by Monsters! But these are not your usual monsters - these are using their undeniable powers of cuteness to kill us all!

This is what you Cult Labbers need to do - the future of mankind depends on it. Below simply post up a picture or a video of the cutest most evil-y adorable animal - kitten, puppy, polar bear, whatever - you can find. The three cutest animals will win that member Monsters on DVD or Blu-Ray (their choosing).

I'll start the ball rolling...








Oh dear god - just look at their horrid amount of cuteness!

There's no limit to the amount of times you enter - as long as they're animals and 'cute' your entry will be counted.

Comp ends next week (Sunday) and is open to everyone (as always). If you have trouble posting pics, just let me know

Kyle

MEOW!
