Monster Pictures to Release Aussie Splatter Pic MONSTRO! on UK DVD
Stuart Simpson's Corman-esque Australian gorefest Monstro! (previously known as El Monstro Del Mar) is heading for UK DVD, courtesy of the good people at Monster Pictures UK. The film has screened at festivals around the world, picking up more than 20 different awards in its bloody path, as it resurrects the spirit of Russ Meyer's Faster Pussycat Kill! Kill!, mixed in with a healthy dose of Evil Dead style splatter and black comedy. Hitting shelves on 22 October, the release boasts two audio commentaries, cast interviews, deleted scenes and two short films: Acid Spiders and Sickie.
Three gorgeously DERANGED KILLERS, Beretta, Blondie and Snowball, hole up in a small beachside community after their murderous actions attract the wrong kind of attention. But not all is as it seems in this small town. A few of the locals try desperately to warn them of the dangers of going into the water but these CRAZY VIXENS listen to no one and they brazenly take to the sea. Unbeknownst to them however, their seaside frolic has awakened a HORRIFYING BEAST from the depths of the ocean. It isn't long before these sexy sirens are hip-deep in trouble as the sea itself rises in a TIDALWAVE OF BLOOD and they face the fight of their lives against THE TERRIFYING KRAKEN.
Monstro! follows in the tradition of innovative and exciting independent cinema of the 60s and 70s golden era of exploitation and horror. Shot with practical effects and good old blood, sweat and tears, director Stuart Simpson has created an aesthetically polished and highly entertaining film to please all fans of cult cinema.
