Thanks to Pacific Rim and the upcoming Godzilla, it’s no surprise to see a rise in giant monster entertainment, and we have news on the latest, “Fear Force Five.”
New web series “Fear Force Five” is poised to take the daikaiju genre to delirious new heights when it premieres for free just in time for Christmas.
Jack Perez, director of Some Guy Who Kills People, Monster Island, and Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, is the mastermind behind the monstrous new CineFix web series, set to debut December 23rd. How crazy will this show get? The first episode’s gargantuan threat is a giant zombie pirate with a lobster claw hand. You won’t see that in “Attack on Titan.”
Perez told Fangoria what “Fear Force Five” is all about.
In a boring beach community a handful of 20somethings who’d rather be anywhere else end up being charged with defending the town, and the world, against an onslaught of marauding gigantic monsters. Keene McRae is Mike, the brooding, sarcastic protagonist—a modern-day George Bailey who just wants to get the hell out of his crap town, only to discover that he’s charged with staying and saving the world every week. Jason McNichols plays Shawn, his painfully geeky, tech-wizard best friend; Jasmine Hester is Mike’s bright and beautiful marine biologist ex, Emma; Verona Blue is Vera, a punked-out, fully tatted bad-ass who owns the local motel and has an ongoing affair with Mike; and Michael Hudson is Rod, the annoying fellow marine biologist who is currently dating Emma.
But it’s really all about the colossal creatures they have to contend with, the majority of which will be inspired by classic movie monsters from the Fifties, Sixties, Seventies, and Eighties.
While the budget may be low, the cost to view the show is even lower: free. The pilot episode will be broadcast in three installments on CineFix’s YouTube Channel beginning December 23rd.
If the teaser trailer doesn’t have the giant monster fan in you wanting to run through the streets wishing everyone a “Merry Christmas,” then you clearly don’t have a wonderful life.
