“There’s a growing sense of unease and distrust of authority that’s not really being reflected in popular culture today the way films of the 1970s did in a post-Watergate era. I really miss those movies, and nobody is making them, so I felt compelled to go make one myself,” said Robinson.

In Corporate Monster, after being phased out of his job, a dangerously unstable man’s life spirals out of control when the prescription pills he takes start to have a side effect: they allow him to see the parasitic beings that have long been puppeteering our world from the shadows. The rich and powerful are not even human, and they are feeding on us. He sets about trying to save his girlfriend from them, but it’s just as possible they are just a side effect of the pills, a hallucination. Is he a savior or a monster himself?

Corporate Monster was produced by Nick Ryan of Titan II/ Floodland Pictures, with executive producers Jay Douglas of Rebellion Studios, Robinson under The Kaiju Meat Company shingle, and Jessica Rudzewicz, and associate producer Anthony Tai. The film was financed by F S IREANN/SCREEN IRELAND and Rebellion Studios.

“I love stories that shatter the protagonist’s lens, so it was an absolute pleasure watching Ruairi at the helm conduct his visual symphony. We’re confident that enough people will get excited about it to warrant a feature or series so that we can expand the world,” said Jay Douglas, Executive Producer.

The Corporate Monster filmmaking team includes: Cinematography by: Macgregor, Music by: Steve Moore, Practical Special Effects by: David Roddham, Production Design by: Marie Lanna, Sound Design by: Brandon Jones, Edited by Ruairi Robinson Visual Effects by: The Kaiju Meat Company

Robinson’s debut feature film “THE LAST DAYS ON MARS” was featured at directors Fortnight in Cannes. His commercials, and short films Fifty Percent Grey, Silent City, BlinkyTM & Leviathan have won over 70 awards and been viewed many millions of times online.
