Vivienne (Shannon Lark) is a very good-looking woman, and yet her
sexual predilections are a bit ... off perhaps? Point is, she's a
necrophiliac, and she likes to spend her nights in the morgue to sample
the new deliveries ... and thanks to briging morgue attendant Paul (Jeff
Dylan Graham), she always gets early access to those.
This night though,
after Vivienne had (rather gruesome) sex with an unnamed corpse (Katie
Fray), another corpse (Adam Cardon) starts talking to her, but is it just
her projected conscience - or something much more sinister? ...
judging from the synopsis above, I am Monster might sound extremely
disgusting or sick or whatever else you've got in the depraved department
- but the film is more than that, because while not exactly holding back
(without becoming too graphic), it's actually stylishly shot and relies
more on character than the acts performed on screen - and it presents
everything totally tongue-in-cheek (which becomes clear early on), and
despite its very dark subject matter remains light-footed throughout.
if you're easily offended, this movie's almost certainly nothing for you,
but if you're at all into dark and slightly "wrong"
humour/horror, do check this one out!
