I watcehd "Two Headed Shark Attack" last night, well, early this morning. Mostly because it had been on Monster Man and I wanted to see how the foam rubber shark worked out. I never noticed the scene they showed the crew filming on the program.
Anyway, it was way into the movie before they got to "How" the shark had maybe come to be "why" it was attacking and "what" made it so much more dangerous than a regular shark, which is pretty dam dangerous in the first place. I'm not going to review the movie here, I'll do that later, but I will say the answers, or lack of them, to these questions left me feeling a bit flat.
What do you look for in your monster movies? Do you want just something scary and horrifying, hard to kill doing some killing or do you like something with a backstory? Is how it came to be, why it's killing and how they stop important? Does it need to extraordinarily strong? Fast? Hard to kill? Do you prefer little monsters? Tower beasts? CGI, puppets, stop motion, rubber suits or a combination?
Let's have the monster fans chime in.
