Taiwanese Horror Film Mon Mon Mon Monsters Debuts in the U.S. this February

RLJ Entertainment will release the horror comedy Mon Mon Mon Monsters to U.S. audiences. The release date is scheduled for this February. In this Taiwan shot feature, a bullied boy discovers a creature, which he hides and uses for his own revenge. This film was shot by director Giddens Ko (You Are the Apple of My Eye). And, the film centrally stars: Eugenie Liu (“Behind Your Smile”), Carolyn Chen, Pei-Hsin Lin, Yu-Kai Deng and Kent Tsai. To release on home entertainment formats, a preview of Mon Mon Mon Monster's upcoming launch is hosted here.

Director Ko has talked about the film, recently. With David Pountain, Ko talks about the motivations behind the making of the film. Ko also talks about the protagonist and his struggles: "so Lin, although he wants to be a good person, lacks guts and courage. It’s really because of peer pressure that he lowers his standards of morality. That’s my way of thinking but Lin also searches for opportunities to be a good person – and he fails." The film covers the difficulties of morality - in a horror world. Ko also talks about the ever expanding budget of the film: "at the very beginning, the budget of the film was about $500,000. It was a rather small, experimental budget. But because it was not a mockumentary anymore, we sort of tripled our whole budget for the film." Still an indie feature, Mon Mon Mon Monsters has changed genres a couple of times. This horror title will test audiences this February 4th.

Mon Mon Mon Monsters will debut on DVD and Blu-ray in just a few weeks. The film has a runtime of 112 minutes. Not rated, this release has both an English and Mandarin track, with English, French and Spanish subtitles included. Fans of foreign films can find the latest on Mon Mon Mon Monsters here.
