Morningside, New Jersey, is a sleepy little town where nothing big ever happens. Sure, it could have been a minor sensation when the local high school's history teacher Mark (Nicholas Brendon) is caught and hauled in for trying to buy half a pound of marihuana - but he bought it for his fire Abby (Amber Chaney), who's dying from cancer and he needed it to make the pain go away. So his best friend Sheriff Haulk (Robert Pralgo) and Klara (Tiffany Shepis), the deputy who arrested him, come to an agreement to just let him off ... and even give him back his grass.

... but then a local petty criminal (Jayson Palmer) is found dead, murdered, and while nobody is really going to miss him, the circumstances of his murder - he was pretty much battered to death, and some kind of symbol is found next to him - are more than a little mysterious and creepy.

More killings follow, all committed by a hooded figure with a weird mask and a uniquely shaped mace, and the killer seems to zero in on Clyde (Mike Stanley), a former high school bully turned drug pusher, and another of theose guys nobody will really miss should he die ... but then, Mark all of a sudden finds himself in the crosshairs of the killer. Something's wrong here, dead wrong ...

 

One can't help but notice that after a enjoyably nasty opening, Attack of the Morningside Monster starts out a bit on the slow side, taking quite a bit of time to introduce its main cast rather than just push the story forward - which is only half as bad as it sounds as the movie is populated by a bunch of well rounded-out characters embodied by a first rate ensemble cast ... and once action and suspense set in, they hardly ever let up again ... and ultimately the story veers off into delightfully unexpected territory, too. Plus, the film's rather matter-of-factly, in a good way old-fashioned directorial effort fits the narrative to a T.

To put it simply, in all it's a really cool movie!
