The very strange, often delightful Chinese movie Monster Hunt opens tomorrow in Arizona, at AMC Centerpoint in Tempe.

Reportedly a huge hit in that country, it’s an epic fantasy that mixes live action with CGI animation—the director, Raman Hui, co-directed Shrek the Third—to spin a yarn of a conflict between the kingdom of humans and the kingdom of monsters set in a fairy-tale past. The story is hard to summarize, but an example of its oddity is that it involves a guy getting pregnant, like a seahorse. That’s right, the hapless everyman human hero gets himself impregnated by a monster, after which he gives birth to a monster baby.


Monster-of-the-Week: …you guessed it, the little bundle of monstrous joy is our honoree this week…
