A punk-rock throwback to monster movies of the 50s crossed with Russ Meyer-esque 70s exploitation, director Stuart Simpson’s award-winning Monstro! (aka El Monstro del Mar) will be rising from the sea to feast on UK DVD this October 22nd, courtesy of the aptly named Monster Pictures.
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 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 tidal wave 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.
The impressive list of special features on this Monstro! release includes:
• Two Feature-Length Audio Commentaries
• Cast Interviews

• Behind-the-Scenes Featurette
