Dread's latest upcoming release is Dark Rift Films' Book of Monsters. This film is a mashup of '80s creature features. And, the film's Kickstarter campaign was unusual, in that it allowed backers to choose plot points in the film. Like a Choose-your-own-adventure novel, Book of Monsters was developed by director Stewart Sparke (The Creature Below) and writer Paul Butler. To release in mid-March, this title stars: Michaela Longden (Terminal, 2018), Anna Dawson (1921), Lizzie Stanton and Lyndsey Craine. Many of these filmmakers have collaborated on the horror film The Creature Below (2016). A preview for Book of Monsters' upcoming Digital release is available here.

Director Sparke has talked about Book of Monsters at recent film festivals. He says of the film's main story idea: "Book of Monsters started life as a short film idea with a young girl having to fight off a monster at her eighteenth birthday party, it was just a fun opportunity for us to play with creatures again and have some fun gags in there about coming of age stories (Blazing Minds)." This coming-of-age story takes a strange turn or two as seen in the trailer. Sparke also mentions the unique scriptwriting experience: "I’d always talked to Paul about my love for choose your own adventure stories I had read as a kid and we found a great way to incorporate that into the campaign by letting people choose six main elements of the film including the monsters themselves." This film was truly developed by its supporters.

Book of Monsters is slated to show on Digital platforms. On March 19th, this indie comedy will show on iTunes, with more Digital platforms set to be announced soon. This release will take place across the United States. All of the available release details on Book of Monsters are below, including the original trailer.
