An Unstable Man Starts To See Monsters All Around Him in This Short Film Corporate Monsters

I’ve got a solid little short sci-fi film here for you to watch called Corporate Monsters. The film comes from director Ruairi Robinson, which as you’ll see is heavily inspired by John Carpenter’s 1988 film They Live.

The story for the short follows a man named Rob (Kett Turton) who starts to severely suffer from depression after losing his job. He starts to become unstable and to help, his doctor gives him some pills to treat his condition. The pills are “not quite Fda approved yet,” and after taking them, “he begins seeing things: he sees people as horrendous monsters, creatures that control the world from the shadows and stay hidden by people’s own blindness and apathy.”

As you’ll see in the short, things escalate into craziness as Rob tries to get his girlfriend (Jenna Coleman) to take one of the pills so that she can see the monsters as well.

Watch: Ruairi Robinson's New Sci-Fi Horror Short 'Corporate Monster'

"They're everywhere! Don't you see." Dive back into the mind of sci-fi filmmaker Ruairi Robinson, who just released his latest short film online. Corporate Monster is the latest film by Irish filmmaker Ruairi Robinson, who we are big fans of here at Fs. Over the years we've featured his other sci-fi shorts including Blinky and The Leviathan. Inspired by the current state of the world, which Robinson rather aptly describes as "f*cked", Corporate Monster tells the story of a man who loses his job and "starts to believe that parasitic creatures are controlling the world." It's basically They Live remade by Neill Blomkamp, filtered through Robinson's mind. The short film stars Kett Turton and Jenna Coleman. This gets a bit too real half-way through, but that's the point. To reflect society, and make us think. Maybe there really are aliens out there? Thanks to Short of the Week for the tip on this.

10 Secrets Behind The Making Of John Carpenter's The Thing

John Carpenter directed a slew of classic films including Escape From New York, They Live, Halloween, and Big Trouble In Little China. One of his most celebrated works is 1982's The Thing. Upon release, the bleak horror movie was panned by critics as boring and over-indulgent with its violence. The masses barely bothered heading to the cinema to see it.

Opinionated: Who Are The Ten Best Talkers in Wrestling History?

  • Nerdly
Now, I’ve been opinionated here lately, but I haven’t compiled any sort of list, and we all like a list, don’t we? So, I figured I’d create a list that is purely my opinion but, from knowing how many people in and out of wrestling feel, it will be a series of opinions shared by many too. We can all shoot the breeze and throw around who we think are the best at something, and it’s all just opinion. We all have different views on what makes the best, what we feel are the best. So, this is my opinion of the ten best talkers in the history of pro-wrestling. Please let me know if you agree or disagree, I’d love to hear your thoughts on who makes your list and who tops it.
