(2020) (Azhy Robertson, Gillian Jacobs) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Horror: An invisible monster tries to use a mute autistic boy's electronic devices to kidnap and take him into another dimension.
Things aren't going well for young Oliver (AZHY ROBERTSON), a mute autistic boy. Not only does he have no friends and must contend with similar-aged bullies such as Byron (WINSLOW FEGLEY), Mateo (JAYDEN MARINE), and Zach (GAVIN MacIVER-WRIGHT), making fun of him having to communicate through a text to speech device, but he must also contend with his parents, Sarah (GILLIAN JACOBS) and Marty (JOHN GALLAGER JR.), splitting up.
Unsettled by all of that, he's easily spooked by odd noises at night. But now he has good reason to be as an invisible monster is trying to kidnap and take him into another dimension. Seemingly summoned when anyone reads a picture book named "Misunderstood Monsters" on any electronic device, "Larry" is a large, gangly monster that can only be seen through live camera shots on such devices, and with each subsequent continuation of the picture book, he gains greater access to this world. Initially unable to get anyone to believe him, Oliver must contend not only with that, but also with his world unraveling around him.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- If they're into monster-based horror films, they probably will.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For terror, frightening images, and some language.
