From a simple premise comes the kind of disturbing and harrowing revenge tale that Monster Fest was set up to showcase. It’s the kind of movie where the less you know, the greater the impact, so all we’ll say here is that when an American tourist (Sterling Knight) steps on an unexploded landmine whilst hiking in the mountains of Georgia, Eastern Europe, he’s powerless to prevent the violation of his girlfriend (Spencer Locke) by a depraved local. As twisted and nasty as it sounds, this latest feature from director Levan Bakhia, who helmed the sauna-set shocker 247˚F and won the Audience Jury Prize at the Fantasporto International Film Festival, has been generating considerable buzz on the indie festival circuit.
