“It’s very low budget so the special effects are mostly practical and basic but not awful at all, they are fun and give the whole thing an 80’s horror movie feel. My favorite shorts were both of Rea’s offerings, the werewolf one because even though the acting was cringey it was quite fun and his vampire movie because it was a little more unexpected than the others and the most original.” Sarah Budd, Horrorscreams Videovault

Monster X is a fun monster flick which gives a twist to some of the classic monsters of the genre. As with most horror anthologies, it has varying degrees of success, but with the movie’s short running times each of the films are direct in their approach, so it moves at a good pace and doesn’t feel drawn out.” Philip Rogers, Nerdly

“The film is admittedly short considering all the things crammed into it although this maybe why Monster X works despite some script issues. It has a fair few gags in it, too. One for horror movie fans to watch for it’s spirit and obvious love of the genre it sometimes pokes fun at, Monster X is a short yet rewarding watch.” James Simpson, Infernal Cinema
