I remember seeing a movie a few (at least 3 or 4) years ago in the cinema. But I can't remember the name or the exact details, which makes it hard to search for online.

It was in a near future world where aliens were present on earth and quarantined into into areas. The movie focuses on a couple who enter the quarantine zone, I think to take pictures.

You don't see the aliens much, but I think they looked like metal Giant Octopus or Squid. It was set in a jungle environment and I'm pretty sure it wasn't a big hollywood style movie, but shot on a lower budget.

Any ideas?


This sounds to be Monsters, released in 2010.

It deals with a photojournalist trying to find a girl within a quarantined jungle. The jungle is full of aliens.

The film was very low budget, so aliens were rare sights. Their designs are very octopus-like.

    Low budget or not, the aliens look pretty creative from your screenshots. – Kzqai Oct 24 '14 at 20:22

    I asked the question because I remember the film being pretty awesome. Well worth a watch. – Mikey Mouse Oct 26 '14 at 12:15

    From what I understand, the budget was largely spent on the effects. The low-budget really came into play in the actual filming, as they did everything very guerilla-style. Quick shots without permits and skeleton production crews. – phantom42 Oct 27 '14 at 19:47
