Cost of Living is a new short film from first time director BenDavid Grabinski. It stars Brandon Routh (Superman Returns, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World) and Bret Harrison (the CW’s Reaper) as two trained gunmen employed by an agency that experiments with monsters. When these monsters escape and wreak havoc, these guys are in charge of containing the threat.
The visual style of the short is pretty well done and the play between Routh and Harrison often amounts to some laughs. After watching it, it makes you wish that Grabinski had some more money to expand it in length as well as be able to add some gruesome looking monsters. He did a good job with his limitations though and the short is entertaining and fun to watch. If you’d like to watch the short film, you can do so here at its official website.
Below are a few more stills and some promo art for the project.
