Love and Monsters (dir. Michael Matthews, 2021) – Seven years after surviving a monster apocalypse, Joel finally finds the courage to leave his underground bunker and reunite with his girlfriend.
Nature fights back in Love and Monsters, where humanity’s grand plan to save ourselves spectacularly backfires. Our attempt to destroy an asteroid heading for Earth unfortunately results in a chemical fallout, turning the animal kingdom into massive monsters, all too fond of devouring the human race.
Well, most of us anyway. A handful of men and women live on intact, coupled up in scattered colonies and surviving on scant supplies. For seven years, Joel Dawson (Dylan O’ Brien) has been content in his bunker, alone and away from the monsters. But when a radio call reconnects him with his girlfriend Aimee (Jessica Henwick), he gathers the courage to finally leave his safe place and venture into the unknown for her.
