Horror Favourites –Monte Markham

REBORN is a contemporary Frankenstein story about a stillborn baby girl brought back to life by an electrical storm before being abducted from hospital by a morgue attendant.

On her sixteenth birthday, empowered with the gift to manipulate electricity, she escapes her captor and sets out to find her birth mother leaving a trail of destruction behind her.

Starring Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator), Michael Pare (Streets Of Fire), Chaz Bono (American Horror Story), Rae Dawn Chong (Commando), Monte Markham (We Are Still Here) and introducing talented newcomer Kayleigh Gilbert this a horror not to be missed.

We where lucky enough to chat to Reborn star Monte Markham about his favourite horror film. Below is what he had to say:

“After “Frankenstein”, a stand alone masterpiece, the earliest shocker I remember terrifying me is a 1946 film, “THE BEAST WITH FIVE FINGERS”, starring Peter Lorre. The crawling hand in that film remains an indelible, unsettling memory. A few years later, however Chris Nyby’s “THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD” still resonates in memory as the perfect suspense filled shocker. And so it remained for me…… until Ridley Scott’s “ALIEN”. I don’t think any film has surpassed ALIEN for overwhelming Cinematic wonder, shock, suspense and unyielding terror – to the last few frames.

In the category of personal favorites that I will always watch whenever and wherever I come across channel surfing – “PREDATOR” and “SILENCE OF THE LAMB”. More recently, I have a very cold place reserved for my first real horror film, “WE ARE STILL HERE”……..Check it out and you’ll have to agree. Annnnd….Today I am very pleased to be a part of Julian Richard’s very high quality work in his film “REBORN”. An excellent production which will be released in the US on September 17th.”

REBORN will be released in the US on VOD on September 17th 2019 following theatrical preview screenings at selected cinemas across the country. Check out the trailer below:
