Monster stories can force us to face the most difficult truths of our human existence — that we are fallen, that we are plagued by demons, and that we are powerless to chase them out.
We are in a monster renaissance. The MonsterVerse has released two successful films, with two more on the way. 2016 saw Toho release the first new Japanese-based Godzilla film since 2004.
In a world where monsters guard against creatures that can shut down a city, there is no room to hope that mankind can end the perennial ills of the human condition.
Sometimes monster movies aren’t really about the CGI monsters; they’re about the monsters creating fear in our own lives.
A genuinely frightening monster is one in which we meet the enemy and he is us.
