A creature feature merging martial arts madness with fantastic folklore, Monstrum is brimming with warrior action, cinematic beauty - and of course - a giant furry monster. Helmed by South Korean director and co-writer, Huh Jong-ho, Monstrum is set for its UK Blu-ray debut and on digital on 4th October 2021 and on DVD 11th October 2021 from Acorn Media International in conjunction with Shudder.
16th Century South Korea: The plague terrorises villagers and fear runs rampant in the streets. When rumours of a fabled and ferocious beast roaming Mount Inwangsan begin to spread, fear soon turns to panic. To quell the rising terror, King Jungjong (Hee-soon Park - The Scam) brings his most trusted general, Yoon-gyeom (Myung-Min Kim - Six Flying Dragons) back from retirement to hunt the monstrous Monstrum - which threatens both palace and people.
Joined by royal court officer Heo (Woo-sik Choi - Parasite), his daughter Myeong (Hyeri Lee - Record of Youth), and loyal right-hand man Seong-han (In-kwon Kim - My Way), Yoon-gyeom embarks on a quest to find the legendary monster.
More than a simple tale of man versus beast, Monstrum considers the origins of myths and murderous monsters. Is the creature real... or a figment of mass imagination?
