Great Short
18 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Really enjoyed this short. Slick anamorphic cinematography, wonderful sound design, excellent pacing. Everything you want from a feature film experience condensed down to a nine minute short.

This was the best Routh has ever been. There's a strong John Carpenter vibe to the whole piece, and Routh fills the Kurt Russell boots nicely. Would love to see him in a feature role like this.

The director, BenDavid Grabinski, did a great job shooting this with a tight budget and aggressive schedule (reportedly two days). Let's hope we see a feature film from him soon.

The end of the short suggests there might be a sequel. I think the concept of "working-class monster security guards" would make a great feature, so here's hoping that Cost of Living leads to something bigger for everyone involved.
