Movie Review #2- Girl vs Monster

Image

 

Honestly this movie was so adorable. Skylar is a literally fearless fifteen year old. She’s also a fifth generation monster hunter. Monsters in this story feed off of your fear in order to manifest themselves, usually around Halloween, when fear is running rampant. Skylar’s parents catch these creatures and lock them in a tank. They also never explain this to their daughter. Soooo… Skylar, unburdened with the family business just wants to go to and sing at a Halloween party (it’s the Disney Channel, everybody sings), but her parents lock her in the house with a babysitter. She cuts the power. Monsters get out. Ohh nooo! 

So Skylar and her BFFs, Henry and Sadie go monster hunting complete with steam-punk-y weapons! Sadie is a nervous girl and a book worm but she really steps up to help out Skylar, and they both get giddy and start cheering when they catch their first monster. Adorbz

It was really cute. Cheesy songs, silly CGI effects. 

They find out that the only way to fight monsters is to face your fears! So there’s musical numbers to get over stage fright and a boy asks Skylar on a date. Ridiculously cute.

And this girl Kathrine McNamara who plays Skylar’s rival, Myra. First she’s kinda gawky and snobby and at one point she get’s possessed by a monster. SUCH GOOD ACTING

Netflix rated this for 8-12 year olds, I think. It’s silly and cute. The monsters don’t look so scary. But it’s a good little spooky story. 

4 Pumpkins! 

(I’m pretty sure half a point was for Skylar’s pink leather jacket. Check it.)

  1. This movie looks so stupid and cheesy that it might be awesome. I recently watched VAMPS and it was pretty cool.
