I Am Monsters! (2023) Frightfest 2023 Movie Review
I Am Monster – Frightfest 2023 Movie Review
Director: Nicholas Vince
Plot: Vince took to the stage in 2019 with his autobiographical one-man-show ‘I Am Monsters!’ Both a resoundingly nostalgic and relatable tale of growing up in love with horror, and an essential discourse on the turmoil of ‘growing up gay’ under draconian Thatcherian rule where the closet was always safest, this is the superb movie adaptation.
Runtime: 1 Hour 11 Minutes
