Welcome back class! Today we are diving into a 2016 movie that you may have missed, The Monster. It's out on Netflix right now and it totally got Tyler right in the feels. Mike too. It's a good flick that does a whole lot of stuff right, including its depiction of an alcoholic parent. So today we are discussing how The Monster gets that so right when other movies and TV shows (looking at you Cheers and The Shining) get it totally wrong.
