A strange black meteor crashes near the town of San Angelo and litters the countryside with fragments. When a storm exposes these fragments to water, they grow into skyscraper-sized monoliths which then topple and shatter into thousands of pieces that grow into monoliths themselves and repeat the process. Any humans in the way are crushed or turned into human statues. The citizens of San Angelo desperately try to save themselves and the world from the spreading doom.

Wow, what an exciting way to kick off the Countdown to Halloween! I have never seen this movie so it's pretty cool to get something new. It must be something special as John Carpenter has this movie playing in "They Live", you can spot the scene showing the last attack of the monoliths on the TV in the homeless compound! 

Tune in and comment below if you have ever seen Monolith Monsters or is Sven tonight will be your first time as well.
