‘Discover. Document. Defend.’
The Monsters Without is a 2021 Filipino fantasy film about scientists and soldiers who must team up with monsters to save the world.
Written and directed by Randal Kamradt (Faraway). The Soliloquy Films production stars Jake Macapagal, Jessica Neistadt, Christina Yr. Lim, Dana Jamison, Andrew Reiley, Leonard Olaer and April Rose Estoy.
When a terrifying ancient Yablo called Nameless arrives with a plan to forcibly return his kind to their home dimension, only the members of P.H.A.S.E. resolve to stop him.
Their leader is Setsuko, a Japanese-Korean woman who has clawed her way to the top of her field, only to request a P.H.A.S.E. assignment. Her fiance, Rommel Romero (Jake Macapagal), is an ex-police detective and the second in command. Two Americans, April and Richard, specialize in security and technology, respectively. Rommel’s sister Wonder has a unique connection with the Yablo and serves as team biologist.
The new intern Benito still has trouble believing everything he sees with P.H.A.S.E. And the newest recruit, Miranda (Jessica MacCleary), holds a stunning secret that will change everything. Though Nameless is nearly invincible, these lonely, conflicted, difficult, loving, and altogether human men, women, and monsters of P.H.A.S.E. must band together to save the world…
The Monsters Without will have its world premiere at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival on Friday, October 1st, 2021, at 9 pm PST at the Regal.
