So my next short is one that I’ve been wanting to release for awhile and couldn’t find the right market. In the just released ‘Dead of Winter’ anthology, I was able to do just that as it was an open-ended horror release which I was able to sneak it into! The tale is titled “Fry Machete’s Monsters, Munchies, and Mayhem” and I’m sure anyone who has watched a certain television Network that involves Food might know where I was going with this one.
I don’t usually try to go too overboard with the humor but I feel a few of the comparisons might come off that way while the rest goes from food to having fun killing monsters in a world that has become overrun with them. Only, Fry doesn’t actually know what he’s gotten himself into before it’s too late.
