Sushi Chefs Versus Sea Monster In Hysterical Short MONSTER ROLL

, Founder and Editor
Deep down inside it's a battle you know you need to see on the big screen: Sushi chefs versus a giant sea monster. Because once they defeat the beast we'll all get to feast on its tasty goodness. Writer-director Dan Blank certainly wants to see the battle happen and so, well, he's made the battle happen.

Blank has teamed with producers Matt Miller and Erich Lochner to create Monster Roll, a short film he describes like this:

We're really excited to finally release MONSTER ROLL online.  This short was created as a proof-of-concept for a feature about sushi chefs fighting sea monsters.  It's a crazy idea, but one we just really wanted to see made.  So, we made it.

We sorely miss the tone of those big, fun fantasy movies we grew up with-movies like Ghostbusters, Gremlins, and Big Trouble in Little China.  We also want to continue the tradition of more recent movies like The Host and District 9 where strong story, characters, and humor take priority over expensive VFX sequences.

If you like MONSTER ROLL and want to help it get to the next stage, please share the film with friends.  Just by spreading the word, you can help prove that we're not totally crazy in thinking this is a movie a bunch of us want to see.
Yes, Dan. I want to see this movie. I think you lot probably will, too. Check out the short below.
