The bargain-basement, almost comically fake monsters in Attack the Block are harbingers of a new wave, I think. Aren’t we all sick of movie-club monsters that cost millions and take months to design? I want to see movie stars earnestly fighting “ironic” monsters that look borderline fake and stupid…but not entirely. Monsters that honestly admit to being creations. Almost in the vein of those stupid Toho monsters from the ’60s. To go by Guillermo del Toro‘s description of his Pacific Rim monsters, I don’t think he’s into this.
