Sushi fights back in Monster Roll

Now this is a flick we can get behind here in The Basement. Here's hoping some studio exec somewhere watches writer/director Dan Blank's short and gives him enough cash to get a full-length feature off the ground.

Monster Roll follows a group of sushi chefs in Los Angeles who must battle giant fish, squid, and crustaceans from the deep, all unleashed by rampant overfishing. What Blank does in six minutes is jaw-dropping cool, with humour, a great backstory and some awesome special effects.

But we're not gonna waste your time by talking about it. Watch and enjoy, then pay the film's official site a visit for more. Nicely done Dan!
