‘Final Destination: Bloodlines’ sets 2025 release – including IMAX screens

“Your Monster”, a film that defies traditional classification, has secured North American distribution rights with Vertical. This groundbreaking project, which stars Melissa Barrera (“Scream” 2022, “Scream VI”), is described as a musical horror rom-com, a rare blend.

The film centers around the character Laura Franco, played by Barrera, a gentle actor navigating a personal and professional crisis. After being dumped by her longtime boyfriend while recovering from surgery, Laura retreats to her childhood home. Her situation worsens when she discovers that her ex is staging a musical they developed together. In the midst of these life-changing events, Laura encounters a monster with whom she forms an unexpected bond. This connection inspires her to follow her dreams, open her heart, and embrace her inner rage.

Melissa Barrera shared her excitement about the project, stating: “Your monster is a Romanian comedy horror musical. My character is a musical theater actor, so there is a musical in the film. There is a lot of singing and dancing in it. And it’s like a rom-com with horror elements. It’s scary at times and even funny at times. And it’s everything I love about a movie combined into one.”

The film marks the directorial debut of Caroline Lindy, who also wrote the screenplay based on her 2019 short film of the same name. The cast includes Tommy Dewey as the monster, with Edmund Donovan, Meghann Fahy and Kayla Foster in supporting roles.

On acquiring the distribution rights, vertical partner Peter Jarowey expressed his excitement, saying: “We were captivated by Caroline’s film at Sundance and thrilled that she has made a home here at Vertical. Marking her directorial debut, she has created a fantastic, fresh, genre-defying film that perfectly balances the mix of comedy, romance and horror, complete with a dash of musical theater that will captivate and delight audiences later this year. “

Caroline Lindy also commented on the partnership with Vertical, “I am delighted to partner with Vertical on the launch of Your Monster. Their strategies and commitment to innovative casting align perfectly with our film, and their passion for film and willingness to support my first feature means the world to me. The crowds at Sundance were incredible, and I’m excited that more audiences will soon have the chance to see Your Monster in theaters and beyond.”

“Your Monster” promises to be a unique film that blends comedy, romance, horror and musical theater in a way that has rarely been seen before. With its innovative approach and the passionate team behind it, the film is all set to give a new experience to the audience.
