Rate-a-Trailer: Monsters

Indie filmmaker Gareth Edwards’ feature debut Monsters, which premiered at this year’s SXSW Festival, is more than just a low-budget (to the the tune of only $15K) sci-fi monster movie. It also looks to be a subtle but compelling love story about a journalist who agrees to escort an American tourist through the area of Central America that has been “infected” with giant alien monsters back to the US border. Slashfilm suggests that Edwards could be the next Neill Blomkamp. Watch the clip after the jump and let us know if you agree.
