Shocktillyoudrop.com recently reported that Jay Dahl developed his short film, THERE ARE MONSTERS, into a feature film currently being screened and looking for distribution.
Here’s the premise (from Shocktillyoudrop):
THERE ARE MONSTERS is a feature length horror based upon the apocalyptic premise that the world is being taken over – slowly, quietly and efficiently – by creatures that look exactly like us.
The story follows a graduate-student film crew who, on a work-related road trip, discover evidence of these doppelgangers. Soon the crew realizes something is very wrong as the world changes before their eyes, and their cameras. Shot in a documentary style, the film is a tense, realistic journey into a terrifying urban landscape.
I’m not a fan of the found-footage format, though films like THE SACRAMENT used it very effectively. So here’s hoping.
I’m excited about this one because it appears to follow the same basic setup as Dahl’s short film, which I watched years ago and enjoyed. I’m posting it here again:
