In Book of Monsters, Sophie’s 18th birthday party becomes a bloodbath when six terrifying monsters descend upon her house, intent on devouring the party guests and killing anyone who tries to leave. As her school friends are torn apart and consumed, Sophie must rally a band of misfits and take up arms to send their party crashers back to hell. To survive the night, Sophie must face her destiny; monsters are real – and she’s the only one who can stop them.
"Book of Monsters is a dark horror comedy in the vein of The Evil Dead II and Shaun of the Dead filled with practical effects driven monsters and intense, gory action."
The film also stars Michaela Longden, Lizzie Aaryn-Stanton, Daniel S. Thrace, Anna Dawson, Rose Muirhead, Arron Dennis and Steph Mossman. Also starring is horror legend Nicholas Vince as Jonas, famous for his roles as the Chatterer in Clive Barker’s Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II as well as Kinski in Nightbreed.
