Today’s Weekend Fright Flick is a giant-monster mini-epic that features some unique beasts and which ranges from the prehistoric past to a technological future. Made as a senior film project by director Brian Engh, it is another great example of what can be done with will, talent and imagination without the aid of a signifiucant budget.

The short is excellent and I’m sure Mr. Engh has a bright future ahead of him. Hopefully, if we’re lucky he’ll make us more daikaiju films in the future.
