In 2013, she appeared alongside Kate Winslet in the drama film Labor Day. She became recognized as a "scream queen" after her performances in the critically acclaimed 2014 films The Guest and It Follows. She also played Patricia Whitmore in Independence Day: Resurgence (2016).
Monroe was born Dillon Monroe Buckley in Santa Barbara, California, the daughter of Dixie, a sign language interpreter, and Jack Buckley, who works in construction. She later changed her first name to "Maika", by which she had already been publicly called for most of her life.
In April 2012, Monroe signed up for the drama film Labor Day, an adaptation of the novel of the same name. She played Mandy, a farm girl who romances with a young man and eventually becomes his wife and the mother of his child. In June 2013, she joined the cast of the psychological thriller film The Guest. In 2014, she starred as Jay in the horror film It Follows, which became a cult hit and secured Monroe's status as a scream queen. In 2016, she co-starred in the invasion thriller film The 5th Wave, based on the novel of the same name. Monroe also co-starred in the 2016 movie Independence Day: Resurgence, the sequel to Independence Day (1996), playing former First Daughter Patricia Whitmore.
