My Monster

2018   |   8 min   |   English

It's in you ... Christmas is coming. If that's not stressful enough, Lily (Brea Grant) has to contend with a clueless partner (Adam Egypt Mortimer) and an unexpected, inter-dimensional holiday guest who just wants two things — blood and cuddles.

"If Hollywood hasn’t taken notice of this virtual diamond-in-the-rough, they need to unfuck that soon and give her a shot at a feature-length production.

 

She’s got vision, talent, and imagination and I’ve come to expect the unexpected from her, a promise she delivers on every single time.

 

If you get a chance to view this utterly hilarious, horrifying, and unforgettable film from the mind of an up and coming superstar you should jump on it immediately."
