AUDIBLE DEBUTS CHILLING NEW SCI-FI FROM BERLIN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL WINNER IVAR LEON MENGER
Callum Blue, Anastasia Griffith and Marc Warren star in new audio-drama from Germany’s master of thriller.
London, 11th October 2016 – Catalysing the surge of interest in classic 70s and 80s sci-fi thrillers, and just in time for Halloween, Audible tomorrow exclusively debuts Monster 1983, an original audio-drama from Berlinale-winning director Ivan Leon Menger. Directed by multiple-Audie and RPA winner Cherry Cookson, the chilling tale stars Callum Blue (Dead Like Me), Anastasia Griffith (Damages) and Marc Warren (Hustle) amongst others.
Drawing influences from Poltergeist, Stand By Me and E.T. and other Spielberg classics, the story unfolds in the small coastal town of Harmony Bay, Oregon. Still reeling from a sudden and profound family tragedy, Sheriff Cody uproots his elder son Micha
Ivar Leon Menger, author of Monster 1983, said: “Having been raised on Spielberg, King and Kubrick I can’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t watching some kind of horror, sci-fi or psychological thriller. I think the legacy of 70s and 80s horror cinema runs quite strongly through Monster 1983, and that’s part of the reason I decided to create an audio-only story, it emphasises both the nostalgia and suspense for listeners.”
Steve Carsey, Director of Original Programming at Audible, said: “After the enormous success of Alien, Out of the Shadows we knew there was a huge appetite for compelling sci-fi audio fiction. Ivar’s stories have been immensely successful in Germany so we’re really excited to introduce his work to UK listeners.”
Monster 1983 is a Wireless Theatre production for Audible Studios. Written by Ivar Leon Menger, translated by Guy Meredith and directed by Cherry Cookson with music scoring by Ynie Ray.
