Babes vs. Bewb Monster

This past weekend, I stumbled upon this amusing animated short which turned out to be an entry for a fake film trailer festival called “Teaserland”. Mimicking the style of a 70’s exploitation movie, Silicon Monster Hits Town tells the sordid tale of a group of confident women who resist the efforts of a towering blob monster out to make the female populace well-endowed (the fiend!). It’s a neat, well-animated piece executed in a style that somewhat reminds me of the 90’s MTV series, Aeon Flux. Antonio Santamaria, an artist who worked on the film, posted some storyboard samples and character designs on his blog, which can be found here.

OMG. That's TOO stupid to believe! The animation looks well done though.

The narration makes several references to Kentucky Fried Movie. Specifically KFM included a skit called "Catholic Highschool Girls in Trouble." This movie title is referenced and the various actress names as well as some of the lines of dialogue come from that skit.
