Monsters of the American Cinema

There’s a monster in my room.

Monsters of the American Cinema, by Christian St. Croix

When his husband dies, Remy Washington, a Black man, finds himself both the owner of a drive-in movie theater and a caregiver to his late husband’s straight, white teenage son, Pup. United by their love of classic American monster movies, the two have developed a warm and caring familial chemistry

Their bond is tested when Remy uncovers secret in footage on Pup’s video camera. Christian St. Croix, author of 2020’s Zack, has written a haunting and heartening drama about fathers and sons, queerness and loss the wrestles with how to bring someone back from the brink of becoming one the monsters we fear.
