Dark, disturbing and unpredictable, this indie thriller revolves around a seemingly normal yet homicidal young man who ventures out one night in search for his first kill. At a lonely bar he meets a young woman, takes her to a hotel room and prepares to kill her…until he discovers she harbors secrets far worse than even he could imagine. What unfolds is a diabolical game of cat and mouse, and a soul bearing confession of love and death. Byron C. Miller, seemingly inspired by the gritty 1980s indie filmmaking of Ulli Lommel’s Blank Generation, Jim Jarmusch’s Stranger Than Paradise and Gus Van Sant’s Mala Noche, directs this unnerving tale of murder and amorality wrapped around a "sweet" love story.
Reviews

 

“The dialogue is what shines in this film as does the concept. A sociopath with a knife, facing a psychotic in handcuffs is a great springboard to explore the way we excuse our less desirable behaviors…He (director Byron C. Miller) knows how to pull genuine moments from them and this is where his work shines…Anatomy of Monsters is a fascinating idea with great performances and good dialogue….worth watching.” – HorrorBuzz

“The story is well done and the director is certainly someone to keep an eye on in the future. Tabitha Bastien stands out as the best performer with her girl next door looks hiding her true sociopath tendencies. Definitely worth checking out if you would like to see a film following a serial killer that is less about the blood, and more about the emotional inner workings of what makes them do what they do.” – HorrorScreamsVideoVault

The Anatomy of Monsters spins a gruesome tale; while many of the kill sequences happen off-screen, there’s still plenty of blood to go around (the weapons of choice are varied too, from serrated knives to glass shards and a garrote).” – AddictedToHorrorMovies

“….compelling viewing….The Anatomy of Monsters is held together by a fantastic dark synth style industrial lite score by Paul Morgan who also co-wrote, produced, as well as did the cinematography.” – TheRottingZombie

The Anatomy of Monsters here is filled to the brim with strong performances and story nuances…It’s a low budget affair for sure, but the quality of performances and the strength of the dialog (which comprises most of the films content, though there are kills for sure…more on them in a bit) is a real cut above what you’d find in your average fright flick of this ilk. As a viewer we are taken full force into the mind of a psycho, and it isn’t a fun place to be that’s for sure, but god damn if the folks involved don’t make it an engaging journey….a cerebral, well written and acted and really made me feel like I needed a few extra showers (the kind where you switch out a wire brush for your luffa) after I watched it.” – TheOutreEye

“A twisted narrative involving love, death, and the struggle between the two…A fond blend of John McNaughton’s Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer and Showtime’s Dexter…Byron C. Miller explores the corners of the dark and deranged minds associated with serial killers while meddling through the conventional intimate affairs of the masses, spurring an atomically explosive situation from a slowly, simmering boil.” – ItsBlogginEvil

The Anatomy of Monsters is a good film. It’s a fascinating, well-acted, well-written study into the lives of serial killers.” – GruesomeMagazine

“…An unexpected atmospheric gem…if you’re in the market for an engaging character study, and can look past a few surface flaws, The Anatomy of Monsters will not disappoint.” – Cinema Slasher

“Filled to the brim with strong performances and story nuances…the strength of the dialogue (which comprises most of the films content, though there are kills for sure) is a real cut above what you’d find in your average fright flick of this ilk. As a viewer we are taken full force into the mind of a psycho, and it isn’t a fun place to be, that’s for sure, but goddamn if the folks involved don’t make it an engaging journey. I really dug the Anatomy of Monsters was cerebral, well written and acted, and really made me feel like I needed a few extra showers (the kind where you switch out a wire brush for your loofah) after I watched it.” – Famous Monsters of Filmland

“A subtle type of terror that slips into your mind and festers causing a great deal of unease and tension.” – AintItCoolHorror

        

About the Director

From a childhood in Owensboro, KY, shooting short horror films with neighborhood friends, Byron always had a love for cinema.  Over the last decade Byron worked with tireless enthusiasm and optimism on multiple projects as a Writer, Director, Editor, and Singer/Performer. This was only the beginning.

After attending various film and television courses throughout High school and college in Orlando, Florida, Byron immediately worked on multiple local productions in every role from P.A. to 1st A.D. In 2006 Byron utilized this experience to write, produce, direct and edit the feature film Night; which was acquired for worldwide home distribution. Relocating to Seattle, Washington Byron directed music videos for bands including The Break Up, Legion Within, Cylab, and Endless Sunder, The Labrynth. He also directed the short film “Phantom Theater.”

For 8 years Byron was a member of the Industrial band GOD MODULE, bringing his over the top style to their live shows.  He performed live at venues across the globe and created all video material for the band.

In 2015 Byron achieved new heights as a filmmaker and Singer/performer. As the lead singer/lyricist, Byron brought his unbridled enthusiasm to the new Shock Rock band, Ghosts in the Graveyard. Their first single and music video “Better in Black” debuted in September, followed by a charismatic live performance on Halloween.  His second feature film, The Anatomy of Monsters is a soul bearing story about the darkest impulses of the human psyche.

Byron is currently attached to direct two original new horror films, both in active development in Hollywood, CA.
