"I AM MONSTER is a stunning work of pop-transgression sure to please both hardcore horror-hounds and newbie thrill-seekers alike." -- Matt Garrett, Vivisections Intl. Horror Shorts

"Their teamwork, a marriage of provocative storytelling and technique, is an electrifying subversion of existentialist drama with a dash of sneering humor..." -- Chris Hallock, Diabolique Magazine

" confronts us with a villainy that is so controversial and taboo that even the bravest of story-tellers have merely scratched the surface.” -- Chelsey Burdon, Scream Sirens Magazine

"Be prepared to have your sensibilities assaulted and left in a quivering pile in the corner." -- the SoreSport, SoreSport Reviews

"Film like this does not come along very often. It deserves to be experienced, appreciated and pondered. The film will shock you. It may even disgust you at times. But it will also excite and provoke thought. Watch I Am Monster — you will never forget it." -- Steven Hickey

"Bowen and Lark are the duo that encompass narrative, sexy appeal and character in an abnormal tale of horror." -- Jay K & The Ghost of "The Horror Happens Radio Show" on HGRNJ

"I AM MONSTER cleverly injects other toxins into its story that serve to dramatically conflict the viewer." -- the Conduit, The Conduit Speaks

"It’s as vibrant as it is dark, as sexy as it is brutal, and as brilliant as it is punishing. Lori Bowen and Shannon Lark are dangerous women in the world of horror, and I can’t wait to see what they come up with next." -- Sylvester Stallone,

"Sex, death, and gory mayhem -- Lori Bowen and Shannon Lark knock it out of the park, the best short film I've seen in years!" -- Vince D'Amato, director of the Shivers Films Society and Cinemafantastique Fest.

"We think the film is twisted, stunning and stylish... and it's also incredibly thoughtful - the fact that it can be both touching and sweet after being so effectively shocking and sick is testament to the skills behind as well as in front of the camera." -- Chris Cooke, Mayhem Film Festival

"This beautifully filmed short has vivid, unapologetic primary and supporting characters. The body language and dialogue, especially the rationalizations Vivienne (played by Shannon Lark) uses, seem almost reasonable and loving although she is committing truly atrocious acts." -- MojoDawn, In The Audience
