AT&T is giving DIRECTV customers an exclusive look at The Monster directed by Bryan Bertino (The Strangers) and starring Emmy-Nominee Zoe Kazan (Olive Kitteridge), Ella Ballentine (The Captive) and Scott Speedman (Animal Kingdom). Fans can watch it today on DIRECTV Cinema, before it hits theaters November 11. For those who don't have DIRECTV, we have the first trailer for this thriller below.

A divorced mother (Zoe Kazan) and her headstrong daughter must make an emergency late night road trip to see the girl's father. As they drive through deserted country roads on a stormy night, they suddenly have a startling collision that leaves them shaken - but not seriously hurt. Their car, however, is dead. As they try in vain to get help, they come to realize they are not alone on these desolate backroads - a terrifying evil is lurking in the surrounding woods, intent on never letting them leave...

A chilling and tension-filled experience, The Monster pits 2 ferociously strong women against one of the scariest and most shocking monsters. It will be a battle no one will forget. The Monster will be available for 72-hour rental. The 1080p HD (Blu-ray format) version will be available for $10.99, while the Standard-definition (SD) will cost $9.99. Here's what Hanny Patel, vice president, AT&T Video Marketing, had to say in a statement.

"Bertino succeeds in delivering a petrifying and hair-raising movie experience with plenty of scares from start to finish. Our customers can tune in to Bryan Bertino's latest horror film before its theatrical debut."

The supporting cast of The Monster includes Aaron Douglas, Chris Webb and Christine Ebaldi. The Monster will go up against Paramount's Arrival, Universal's Almost Christmas, Sony's Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk and EuropaCorp's Shut In.
