Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine88 - It isn’t a rom/com, although the director wanted two names which evoked that genre so he could play within it in unexpected ways. But it’s also not entirely a monster movie or what the Japanese call a Kaiju, like Godzilla flicks and the likes; although that is more what Vigalondo set out to make, only he figured out a smarter way to not only make the storyline more interesting than a traditional Kaiju, he also was able to keep the budget low, as we mainly experience the Monster through media - cellphones, Youtube, TV, so you don’t need to see it stomping around with a crazy amount of CGI to make an impact.
