SYNOPSIS

Three gorgeous but deadly hired killers, Beretta, Blondie and Snowball, hole up in a small beachside community to keep a low profile. But this town has a dark secret. The local old sea baron, Joseph, tries desperately to warn the out-of-towners to never go into the water. But these crazy vixens listen to no one, so the Kraken awakes! Now, along with Joseph and his beautiful granddaughter, Hannah, they must fight for their lives against this furious creature of the deep as the sea rises in a tidal wave of blood.

Those who aren't familiar with Russ Meyer's Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! or Roger Corman's innumerous ridiculous monster movies will likely miss the heavy influences they had on Stuart Simpson's newest horror endeavor, El Monstro del Mar. This is Simpson's second attempt at the macabre, his first being a film that he would probably tell you sucks the big one, or at the very least that he was unhappy with it. He was a rookie Director, and threw everything he had into his first attempt at the genre, Demonsamoungus (which is "Demons Among Us" all smushed together).

Monstro begins with a trio of sassy, tattooed, cigarette-smoking vixens stranded on the side of the road in at the intersection of anywhere and nowhere. The scene is shot in black and white which, when combined with the girls' style of dress and choice of music, would indicate the film is set sometime in the fifties or sixties, an undeniable tribute to Meyer's Pussycat. That is, of course, until color rapidly bleeds into the film as a pair of guys that stopped to lend a hand are brutally slaughtered by Monstro's three murderesses. At that point the film shifts into a kind of strange timeline, lost between Meyer's nineteen sixties and Simpson's present day. The girls certainly act old-school, but they also listen to cassette tapes, and at one point one of them even uses a cell phone. It's a veritable medley of pop culture from the ages.

Beretta, Blondie, and Snowball (played by Nelli Scarlet, Karli Madden, and Kate Watts respectively) flee the scene where their terror reigned and go to hiding out in a tiny fishing town, in a would-be abandoned building owned by a friend of Blondie's.

EL MONSTRO DEL MAR! (aka: MONSTRO!) is about three wild, insane, homicidal women, named Beretta (Nelli Scarlet), Blondie (Karli Madden), and Snowball (Kate Watts), out for a good time. Fans of Russ Meyer, especially his sublime FASTER PUSSYCAT KILL! KILL! will adore these women, even though they're a bit more on the sadistic / psychopathic side than Meyer might have dared to put on film. Not surprisingly, their idea of fun involves cold, bloody murder. After taking care of a pair of overly helpful gents, and taking their car, the terrible trio head out to the beach for a swim. What they don't know is that they've happened upon more than just another good time. Ignoring the cryptic warnings of a local old man, the girls settle in for a night of partying in a beach house, unaware of the lurking terror outside. With a new-found friend named Hannah (Kyrie Capri) in tow, the women rave on, while a group of fishermen is devoured nearby. It appears that a sea monster is hungry for human flesh! Will the three "man-killers" recognize the danger they're in, before it's too late? Have they finally met their match? EL MONSTRO DEL MAR! is a well-made, low-budget Australian film from writer / director Stuart Simpson. Very gory, it still manages to have a decent story-line. The monster itself is actually quite menacing! The gooshy finale -almost- enters into blessed DEAD ALIVE territory! Meanwhile, I like to think that the late, great Tura Satana looks down upon this film and smiles...

I caught El Monstro on the big screen when it opened the Melbourne Underground Film Festival and was blown away by this savage tale from Down Under. An unabashed homage to genre greats like Russ Meyer, Monte Helman and Roger Corman, watching El Monstro was like being kicked in the testicles by awesomeness. This film contained everything I wanted from a low budget exploitation film - hot women, gruesome special effects, an ass-kicking soundtrack and a plot designed to service them all. Forget Snakes On A Plane, give me a Monster from the Deep any day!

Saw and old palomino in this flick going by a pseudonym nom de plume using Kat as her first name.and the last one is a fabrication. Overall this was better than I expected. AN Indie Horror flick with some awards BTA writing, acting and the CLIMATIC SCENES WERE WELL DONE EVEN IF A LITTLE HOKEY. THE DEAD BODIES AND PARTS, BLOOD LETTING ETC. SHOWED SOME SKILL! A suggested alternate title might have been SKANKS and SQUID!

so many of these retro bitch slap sucker punch cat run death proof Salt and Hannah joints lack the courage of their bad girl posture - they need a rape for the revenge, an unjust imprisonment for the escape, as if men don't deserve their deaths a priori to offense, just for being safety first clydes driving heaps you could time with an hourglass

NOT THESE GIRLS - viva le badass Australians! As the customers say at the go-go bar in FASTER PUSSYCAT, Go baby! Go Go go!

This is a great little Aussie gem! A great fusion of rockabilly, monster movie and a demented Russ Meyer film! Using every inch of it's micro budget the film delivers a great time with genre stylings that are born out of true fandom (the title itself is a riff on an old Spanish monster film). The film has some great monster F/X work and a rough and ready ethos that works a treat!

This loving homage of 50's monster movies and the tough-girl-gang cinema of Russ Meyer is a must see for any exploitation fan.
Decked out with hot tattooed chicks, tentacles, a shotgun wielding schoolgirl, glorious gore and an obligatory crazy old man..
If you like horror films that remind you of why you became a fan to begin with, do yourself a favour and get this..
Fun stuff...

Also, on a side note.. The short films on the dvd are also a lot of gory, schlocky fun.. Overall a purchase well worth it.
