Six years previously, a NASA probe returning to earth with samples of an alien life form, crashed over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear,  and half of Mexico was quarantined as  an infected zone. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain “the creatures”. The story begins when a US journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border.



Gareth Edwards

Gareth Edwards has always pushed the boundaries of filmmaking. His graduation film was one of the first ever student films to combine live-action with digital effects. He recently broke new ground directing the epic drama “Attila the Hun” for the BBC, creating all the 250 visual effects by himself. But still frustrated with the “factory approach” to filmmaking, he entered the Sci-Fi-London 48 Hour Film Challenge, hoping to prove that you could make a cinematic film with no crew and just one actor in only 2 days. The film won first prize and led to his feature film debut with Vertigo Films, Monsters.
