A monster movie with bags of charm, Love and Monsters is one of the surprise packages of 2020, but sadly it never received the full opportunity to have a run in theatres due to the global pandemic. Having released on Netflix worldwide this past week, Love and Monsters finally has the chance to shine.

7 years after the start of the monsterpocalypse Joel Dawson is finally able to get in contact with his girlfriend, who lives on the coast 85 miles away.
