Cost of Living: Monsters vs. Security Guards
‘Cost of Living’ is an awesome little sci-fi short written and directed by first-time movie maker BenDavid Grabinski. Damn! We think we’re in love!! ♥
It features Bret Harrison (Reaper, Breaking In) and Brandon Routh (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Chuck) as Silas and Jerry; two average guys working a dead-end job for an evil, monster-creating organization. It’s essentially a day in the life of the security guards at the Umbrella Corporation or Aperture Science. Speaking of Aperture Science, Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, The Thing) even does a wicked pseudo-GLADoS impression in her cameo as the voice of the computer.
Also, we’d like the record to show that we totally agree with Jerry regarding the necessity of memory guide posts! They are so important!
The full film is now online; you will be a better person for having watched it.
We’ve conveniently embedded it right there for you! Watch it now!
