INTERVIEW: Chris Sivertson on Crafting a Haunting Dissection of Emotional Turmoil in ‘MONSTROUS’

Monstrous, Chris Sivertson‘s (I Know Who Killed Me, All Cheerleaders Die) latest feature, which serves up a legitimately haunting dissection of emotional turmoil by way of supernatural thriller tropes, bows in theaters and On Demand tomorrow, May 13 through Screen Media.

Directed by Sivertson, from a screenplay written by Carol Chrest (The Prophet’s Game), Monstrous stars Christina Ricci (“Yellowjackets,” Monster), Colleen Camp (Sliver, Die Hard with a Vengeance), Santino Bernard (Penny Dreadful: City of Angels, “Bing”), Don Balderamos (Suburbicon, “Castle”), and Nick Vallelonga (Green Book, The Many Saints of Newark).

The film centers on a terrifying new horror that awaits Laura (Ricci) and her seven-year-old son Cody when they flee her abusive ex-husband and try to settle into a new life in an idyllic and remote lakeside farmhouse. Still traumatized, their physical and mental well-being are pushed to the limit as their fragile existence is threatened.

In anticipation of tomorrow’s release, CinemaChords’ Ashley Northey caught up with Sivertson who discussed what drew him to direct a film that tackles these specific themes, getting the chance to work with such a seasoned pro as Ricci, and unconscious inspirations for the creature effects.
