Seven years after the Monsterpocalypse, all of humanity has been forced to live in underground colonies. When Joel Dawson (Dylan O’Brien) reconnects over the radio with his high school girlfriend Aimee, who has been living on the coast 80 miles away, he begins to fall for her again. Joel realises that there’s nothing left for him underground, and despite all the danger that stands in his way, he decides he must venture out to find his true love.
Nominated for the Oscar for Best Visual Effects, Love and Monsters has won over critics with its high fun-factor. IndieWire writes, “Michael Matthews’ Love and Monsters is the rarest kind of movie these days: A fun, imaginative, genre-mashing adventure that was made with a modest amount of big studio money.”
RogerEbert.com calls Love and Monsters, “An excellent display of O’Brien’s infectious imagination and comic energy.”
