In a cultural climate where remakes, sequels, and reboots are the name of the game, it’s almost impossible to find viable intellectual property. Most beloved characters are already owned by someone, whether that’s Disney, Marvel (owned by Disney), or Fox (owned by Disney). Wandering through this wasteland, a light emerges: The popular video series Monster Factory, in which Justin and Griffin McElroy stretch the bounds of video game character creation engines to generate beautiful, horrible beings.
The episodes themselves are hilarious and worth watching if you haven’t seen them, but more importantly, they represent years worth of original intellectual property lying around collecting dust. Why create something if you aren’t going to wring it out for all it’s worth? With that in mind, we here at Monster Factory Movie Studio are here to pitch takes on some extant Monster Factory characters. Please, get in touch.

Everyone’s talking about how kid golfing sensation Garret (Danny DeVito) appeared out of nowhere to win the Ryder Cup, the Masters, and the U.S. Open.
