CASTING CALL FOR FEATURE FILM:
We Are Monsters is an unconventional monster movie about three young people that are independently transforming into strange, animal-like creatures. It is a coming of age tale about outsiders that is strange, dark, and ultimately hopeful.

As his transformation worsens, he flees his home and meets an isolated loner named Jake (16) who is an anthropomorphic rabbit. Jake lives in a vast, abandoned building in the woods, and he takes Morgan in because they are both outcasts.
The tone is intensely dramatic and surreal. The film will walk the line between horror and humor and between irony and sincerity. It touches on themes relating to faith, sexuality, and isolation.
