Just a few days ago, the first trailer for the Tim Burton series revival of the “Addams Family” went online. This will also star ‘Monstrous’ lead actress Christina Ricci, who made her acting breakthrough in ‘The Addams Family’ where she starred in the films ‘The Addams Family’ and the sequel ‘The Addams Family: A Crazy Tradition’ Wednesday Addams – as the actress has since outgrown the role of Wednesday, it will be exciting to see which character she will play in the new Netflix series. First of all she has to defend herself and her son against dark demons in the gaudy 50s horror film “Monstrous” – now there is a German trailer for the horror flick.
As part of the Glasgow Film Festival in Scotland in March 2022, viewers had the opportunity to experience “Monstrous” on the big screen for the first time. On May 13, 2022, the horror film also started in selected cinemas in the USA and at the same time as video-on-demand. Unfortunately, the 1950s horror fairy tale will not be released in cinemas here, but will be released directly on DVD, Blu-Ray and as VOD. “Monstrous” with Chrisina Ricci will be released for the home cinema market on September 2nd and can already be pre-ordered from Amazon & Co.

Laura (Christina Ricci) is exhausted. Living with her abusive husband forces her to flee her old life. Together with her seven-year-old son Cody (Santino Barnard), she is looking for a new start in America in the 1950s. In a small town far away from the big city, she thinks she has found it. An older couple (Don Baldaramos, Colleen Camp) offers the desperate mother accommodation in an old country house and Laura’s hope for a new, better life seems to be realizing: while Cody settles in at his new school, she finds a job as a Typist in the nearby village.
But the newly won idyll is deceptive, because Cody is plagued by terrible nightmares every night. Creepy visions of a monster from the pond rob the boy of sleep. Laura suspects that these have to do with the threatening calls from her husband, who got her number and wants to force her to go back to her old life. But she soon finds out that the boy’s horrors are far more real than she initially thought!
