Monsters and aliens have been a staple of science fiction and horror films since the birth of cinema, bursting out of the chests and feasting on the innards of countless big screen victims. Which is why it makes perfect sense to include them in a children’s movie, provided you want your kids to grow up setting fire to churches and making furniture out of prostitute parts. Referencing countless cinematic creatures, Dreamworks’ Monsters Vs. Aliens tells the story of Susan, a young woman who grows to impossible size after a meteor collision, and must save the planet from an alien despot. Tonight, Sound on Sight takes a look at this computer animated blockbuster, as well as The Blob and The Thing, two of our favourite alien/monster hybrid films.
