Monster is a 2018 British horror feature film directed by Matt Shaw from a screenplay co-written with Michael Bray, based on Shaw’s bestselling book of the same name. Author Shaun Hutson was a consultant. The Black Mandala/
Purgatory Pictures production stars Tracy Shaw, Rod Glenn and Laura Ellen Wilson.

Emily is tired of her life. In a dead-end job that she hates and an employer who takes advantage of her, she dreams of a life away from the daily grind.

Unfortunately, Emily’s life takes an unexpected turn, when she is snatched from work and bundled into a van. She awakes later in the isolated Remington home, a place of death and violence where depravity and horror are the norms.

Led by the fearsome Richard, the undisputed head of the household, Emily discovers that the Remington’s are organising a very special birthday party and she is the guest of honour.

When the birthday boy –Remington’s seven-foot-tall hulk of a son appears, Emily realises she is more than just a guest and their intentions for her are much more sinister…

The producers of Monster have described it as “a cross between The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Natural Born Killers.”
