Monsters, released in 2010

The US and Mexico have been battling against aliens for years — there’s an “infected zone” between the 2 countries where they tried to contain the octopus-like creatures. Kaulder is a photographer who is asked by his boss to escort Sam safely to the coast. Sam is the daughter of the man in charge of the publication Andrew works for. They run into a bit of trouble on the way when their passports get stolen.

Stars Scoot McNairy and Whitney Able. Directed by Gareth Edwards (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story). The atmospheric music is by Jon Hopkins.
