Samuel Goldwyn Films will release MAKING MONSTERS to VOD and digital platforms March 26. Rob Brunner and Justin Harding directed from a script by Harding, and the cast is headed by Alana Elmer, Tim Loden, Jonathan Craig, Jarrett Siddall and King Chiu. The synopsis: “Christian Brand [Loden] has a successful YouTube channel with over 10 million subscribers. His wife, Alison [Elmer], is the unwilling star of their prank videos. The stars run into an old friend, Jesse [Siddall], who invites them up to his place for a weekend. When they arrive, they discover Jesse is not there but his partner David [Craig] is. The YouTube stars have a quiet dinner with David that turns into a night of partying and strange occurrences. The couple awakens to find that their phones are gone and their host is nowhere to be found…”
