The Monster Project is another found-footage style horror film about three different monsters, Skinwalker, Vampire, and Demon.
A horror filmmakers decided to make a film about real life monsters. They post an ad looking for “real” monsters to interview for their upcoming documentary called, The Monster Project. They found three individuals claiming to be a real monster to interview. They are supposed to be skin-walker, a vampire, and a demon possessed girl.
The movie is about these film crew interviewing these real life monsters. But of course, things doesn’t go too well.
The Review (Spoiler Free)
The Monster Project tries to be unique but it ended up being just another found footage horror film. It fails to stand out from thousands of other movies out there. But if you don’t have too much expectation, it is still entertaining movie.
I was disappointed that the movie spend so much time developing each characters. Almost half of the movie is about personal drama of each character. I felt that these personal dramas have nothing to do with the movie. If they cut out these dramas, the overall story wouldn’t change much. For example, one of the guys is drug addict and we see he’s personal struggle to overcome it. There is also love triangle that is going between the female director and two of the guys in the crew which no one cares.
Once the crew moved into the creep house to do an interview, the movie starts to get exciting. Last 30 minutes of the movie, all hell break loose, so get ready. Just like many other found footage films, there are many jump scares and many creepy scenes.
But I wasn’t so excited about the fact that most of the film is in green night-cam mode and there are lots of shaking of the camera. Many times, it was hard to tell what is happening.
The movie does have surprise ending that you might like. It isn’t anything that will blow your mind, but I have to admit, I didn’t see it coming. I’m not going to talk more about the ending but just to say that the movie gets really dark at the end.
The Monster Project doesn’t stand out from rest of the found footage horror, but if you are fan of found footage horrors, you’ll enjoy it. I give 3 out of 5 stars.
