Sensible virgin college lad, Adam, is on his way to a wedding.
The invitation comes from his sweetheart who is marrying somebody
else. Adam intends to declare his true feelings for her and
thereby prevent the marriage. Stowing along for the ride is
his ex-best friend, Harley, a crude loudmouthed joker. Stopping
along the way, Harley insults the redneck locals, and very
soon it seems a madman in an armoured monster truck in on
their tale, seeing them as fair game. This time the driver
really is a monster. They witness the truck both maim and
kill, and there doesn't seem to be any way to avoid being
next. Events take a turn for the better when Adam and Harley
pick up a sexy hitchhiker called Sarah. But is she too good
to be true...?
DVD cover of Monster Man contains a quote from Film
Review which describes this as "Jeepers Creepers
meets Duel in Texas Chainsaw country." Let me
make clear from the outset that this movie doesn't reach the
heights of any of those references. However, that doesn't
necessarily make it a derisory film. It borrows most heavily
from Jeepers Creepers, but there are elements of Duel.
Texas Chainsaw should be replaced with Wrong Turn
or perhaps The Hills Have Eyes. In fact it's difficult
not to think of Monster Man as a mosaic of other people's
ideas, rather than any single germ of originality.
the behind-the-scenes documentary you get the impression cast
and crew enjoyed the making of this film intensely, but I
think SFX was closest, inferring that it's essentially
a cheap beer and pizza treat. So treat it as such, and take
note as it moves from predictable, to an edgy midsection,
to a corny, disappointing ending. If subtle humour can work
well with horror; Monster Man covers all bases by aspiring
to horror, humour, road movie and teen coming-of-age.
