Their best friend Dana (Kyrie Ellison) has gone missing in Sasquatch country, so Sylvia (Anna Shields) and Jamie (Grant Schumacher) try to trace her last steps and happen upon Alex (Rachel Finninger), a girl who has hitched a ride with her deep into the woods via Craigslist. And seeing Alex is trying to hitch a ride again, the two figure to offer their services - and thus Sylvia ends up being Alex's driver, and though she finds the occasional thing off with her, she also really falls for her, and vice versa, and the two soon start having sex. And when Sylvia has dropped Alex off at her destination, her house deep in the woods, she decides to stick around for a while. Thing is, her cellphone has no signal, so she can't tell Jamie ...

Worried sick about not hearing from Sylvia, Jamie drives after her, and while he always suspected Sasquatch action in that region - much to Sylvia's ridicule - he's more than surprised running into the real deal (Dylan Grunn) ...

Sylvia notices several things odd about Alex's house, including a subliminal sound constantly transmitted to the outside, and eventually Alex confesses that there is someone or something - as in Sasquatch - out there, and the sound is what keeps it away, so as long as Sylvia stays within clearly marked perimeters, she's fine. Sylvia's happy with that, after all she's very fond of Alex and feels safe with her - that is, until she finds finds a door to a secret basement that holds some of Alex's darkest secrets ...

 

Monstrous is a really fine piece of Sasquatch cinema, especially because it doesn't got the usual monster movie route but is instead completely character driven, and allows its characters to be flawed and make wrong decisions, get into awkward situations while doing a great job of gradually increasing the tension and at the same time keeping everything shrouded in mystery until the finale. And a small but dedicated cast really help bringing this to life and making it a fun genre watch.
