Watch: Comedic Sci-Fi Short 'Cost of Living' Starring Brandon Routh
We've been featuring a lot of shorts recently, but there's a bunch of fantastic sci-fi ones that have ended up online recently. I first saw this one, BenDavid Grabinski's Cost of Living, at Fantastic Fest last year and loved it, it's a wild, hilarious, well-made 10-minute sci-fi short film starring Brandon Routh that I highly suggest watching as soon as you can. SlashFilm found the online full version for your viewing pleasure, and if you're looking for something original and fun, this is definitely it. In fact, this would make a great double feature with Cabin in the Woods, but check it out anyway. As it says on the Vimeo page: Please play loud.
It's self-explanatory, but here's a synopsis: Two young security guards at an unusual corporation have a bad night. Cost of Living is written & directed by up-and-coming filmmaker BenDavid Grabinski, currently working on a number of projects for his feature debut, also found on twitter @bdgrabinski. Actor Brandon Routh co-stars as Silas with Bret Harrison as Jerry, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as "The Computer's" voice. This played at numerous film festivals last year but is now online in full.
