Monstro! Gets an October DVD Release
Great news for lovers of retro-indie-buxom babes-and-creature flicks. Stuart Simpon’s MONSTRO! (previously titled EL MONSTRO DEL MAR!, my review here), will be hitting DVD this October. Check out the press release:
PRESS RELEASE: MONSTER PICTURES present MONSTRO!, a retro-style creature feature gore-fest from director Stuart Simpson, will be released on DVD on 22 October 2012
Killer vixens vs The Creature from the Deep in this retro-style creature feature gore-fest
Three gorgeously DERANGED KILLERS, Beretta, Blondie and Snowball, hole up in a small beachside community after their murderous actions attract the wrong kind of attention. But not all is as it seems in this small town. A few of the locals try desperately to warn them of the dangers of going into the water but these CRAZY VIXENS listen to no one and they brazenly take to the sea. Unbeknownst to them however, their seaside frolic has awakened a HORRIFYING BEAST from the depths of the ocean. It isn’t long before these sexy sirens are hip-deep in trouble as the sea itself rises in a TIDALWAVE OF BLOOD and they face the fight of their lives against THE TERRIFYING KRAKEN.
Monstro! follows in the tradition of innovative and exciting independent cinema of the 60s and 70s golden era of exploitation and horror. Shot with practical effects and good old blood, sweat and tears, director Stuart Simpson has created an aesthetically polished and highly entertaining film to please all fans of cult cinema.
Monstro! will be released on DVD in the UK by Monster Pictures UK on 22 October 2012.

Now check out the trailer. This is a pretty fun flick. I don’t know if I’d refer to it as a “gore-fest” like this press release is (if you’re looking for an excessively gory flick, you may be disappointed), but this is a solid flick.
