Kaiju Search-Robot Avery wanted you to have the short film Just Add Water (US-2007; short [5:30 min.]; dir. Hank Carlson) as a bonus this week, even requesting that it be given its own post. He’s very keen. Who am I to argue with someone as huge and robotically fearsome as a humanoid search-engine in a frenzy?
If you haven’t guessed from the title this cute short film spins off from those intriguing ads that used to, and sometimes still do, appear in the back pages of comics and monster magazines, offering you the opportunity to grow your own monsters-in-a-water-jar. It’s the second we’ve come across lately. There’s another with a similar theme called Water Monsters Attack … though that one’s rather different… but I’ll tell you about that another time.
