"Monster" was good - but a bit too intense for the younger set. Some of the language wasn't suitable for those under 15 or so, and there were some extremely violent and physical scenes. Overall, very good. This story is not of the poor misunderstood monster that only wants to be friends, rather this monster wants revenge, and kills everyone around Victor until finally Victor pursues him to the ends of the earth. This monster is evil, although not through any fault of his own. A nice bit of philosophy there.

Of course, any child who went around killing and vivisecting animals and family pets would be put through intense psychotherapy these days, and discovered to be a nut rather early.
